PORTLAND, Oregon (March 05, 2012) – The Fantaspoa Film Festival announced today that the Portland feature film “Cell Count,” made by Polluted Pictures in association with Wooden Frame Productions, is the Closing Night Film at their Festival in May. Last year’s Closing Night Film, “Stakeland”, was later released in theaters in 2011 by IFC Films and Dark Sky Films.
Cell Count was the third of three feature films shot in 2011 from Wooden Frame Productions that utilized the Oregon state iOPIF rebate program which provides rebates of 20% of goods and services and 10% of Oregon labor for films produced by Oregon filmmakers who spend a minimum of $75,000 but not more than $750,000 on their project. Over 50 cast and crew for the film were residents of Oregon. “This incentive is why we are able to make feature films in the state that we love,” said filmmaker Todd E. Freeman. “Oregon has diverse actors, locations, and crew abilities and without this incentive we would have to consider making movies in another state.”
This is the Fantaspoa Film Festival’s 8th year. It is the first genre festival in Brazil as well as the biggest fantastic film festival in Latin America. “We are so excited to have our World Premiere at the Fantaspoa Film Festival. We’ll be among some of the very best that Fantastic Cinema has to offer from around the world,” said Todd E. Freeman. “Our intent from day one was always to make a film for enthusiasts of the Sci-Fi and Horror genre. It’s going to be a blast to see it in a theater full of genre fans for the first time… as well as subtitled in Portuguese!”
Joao Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho, Directors of the Fantaspoa Film Festival, say that “Cell Count is a film that has a strong potential to please a large audience. Those seeking pure entertainment will get their fix and those looking for a film to reflect upon will be satisfied watching it as well.” They went on to say that “All in all, the suspense, the twists, its powerful visuals along with its simple universal story make it unique and effecting. We look forward to seeing Todd E. Freeman’s film “Cell Count” appreciated by a large, and well deserved, audience.”
The production company of the film Wooden Frame Productions is currently in talks with Sales Representatives as well as Distributors all over the world. The poster from the film Cell Count designed by Tom Hodge, The Dude Designs, debuts on Ain’t It Cool News website on Friday March 9th.
