Snow is a new indie feature film set in Toronto, adapted from Benjamin Rivers's graphic novel of the same name, about a love affair between a young woman and her neighbourhood of Queen Street West, which is being transformed by development.
The movie premieres tonight at the Revue Cinema in Toronto, and can be had as a DRM-free download right now in a deluxe package that includes a download of the graphic novel, a game adaptation, and the soundtrack. You can also watch the whole film online for free.
Filmmaker Ryan Couldrey writes,
There are no male leads, and no romantic subplots. This is a love story between the lead character and her neighbourhood, Queen West.
Money made in (at least) the first 90 days is going to be donated to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in Toronto. They're on board and their social media coordinator has a brief cameo in the first scene.
Much of the film takes place in a fictional bookstore, which we filmed at Bakka Phoenix with Chris and Ben's blessing.

We love our smartphones and tablets, but we also love to write. For a while now, there hasn’t been a workable solution.

It’s the […]
