When you find out Coming Distractions is coming back!
Hey Kids! Let’s Put on a Show!! Save our Cinema
Coming Distractions is based on true stories from our very own independent movie theatre, Film.Ca Cinemas. To survive the COVID pandemic we decided to go into full production mode to make new episodes. How meta is that?
Our production company, Film.Ca Productions, also owns and operates our very own local, independent movie theatre. After going through our second COVID-19 closure, we were thinking of ways to pivot, particularly to keep our staff working. So we thought, why not go into production full time? With the lack of big studio releases due to COVID for the foreseeable future, we can provide audiences with new things to watch, including our own content, which provides all the feel-good comedy, drama and escapism we need right now.
We filmed Episodes 2 & 3 during the closure, which were released on February 15th, 2022 on Zuzu Video on Demand.
We are in the planning stages of producing the rest of the 10-episode season. Stay tuned for ways you can support the production!
