"The Pack" Qualifies for the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, and Independent Spirit Awards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Visual Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VUAL) Subsidiary Sterling Worldwide Entertainment along with Electric Movies and Jamaad Production is proud to announce that "The Pack" has qualified for the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, and Independent Spirit Awards. "The Pack" premiered at the Hollywood Breathes Fresh Air event in September and helped bring awareness to second-hand smoke issues.

Kira Baskerville-Williams, CEO, Sterling Worldwide Entertainment, states, "We have believed in 'The Pack' since its inception and we are extremely proud of how audiences around the country have embraced this spectacular film." "The Pack" played at Laemmle Theatres in Los Angeles. Dr. William McCarthy, Head of the School of Public Health at UCLA and the American Cancer Society Leadership Committee, stated, "'The Pack' is a courageous antidote to the many films that have exalted cigarettes. This is a must-see film for educators concerned to confront students with the unintended social consequences of tobacco use."

"The Pack," directed by Alyssa Rallo Bennett and written by Alyssa and Gary O. Bennett, is a no-holds barred, stark look at horrors of tobacco use and nicotine addiction. Compelling and frightening, "The Pack" is inspired by true events and dares to ask questions that remain unanswered to this day. Few films deserve the label "important," and this is one of them. A bit "Silkwood," "The Insider," and "12 Angry Men" all rolled into one, "The Pack" poses the question: What if your behavior was legally accepted for dozens of years and suddenly found you on trial for murder?

"The Pack" will be released on DVD October 27 and will be available online at, and the Sterling Worldwide online store,
