ALBUQUERQUE, NM – The New Mexico made independent film: “Low/Fi” is now an Official Selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival’s Court Métrage (Short Film Corner). The movie by Four Point Five Films and 82|92 Productions has been selected to screen in the international festival next month.
“Low/Fi” is a romantic comedy about a woman named Lea (Kristen Rakes) who has been heavily influenced by pop culture all of her life. Single at 30, feeling wronged by the way movies and music portray love, she quits pop culture cold turkey to see if she can find true love without it. Filmed entirely on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2014, the highly stylized 14 minute short was shot on a shoestring budget in only four days.
Since its January 2015 premiere in Albuquerque as part of a New Mexico production showcase put on by The Indie Scene, “Low/Fi” has screened at the the Los Angeles Indie Film Festival in February, winning awards for Best Comedy and Best Editing. The film garnered an honorable mention at the Taos Shortz Film Festival in April. Upon its return from Cannes, “Low/Fi” will close the Albuquerque Film & Media Experience in June.
The Cannes Film Festival runs May 13 – 24, 2015 in Cannes, France. Writer, Director ( and former Merida resident) Alejandro Montoya Marin will attend the prestigious events with star, Kristen Rakes, co-producer, cinematographer, Ariel Rakes, and assistant director, Kenneth McGlothin.
