World Theatrical Premiere: "Amazon Falls"

Directed by Katrin Bowen

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 21, 2011) - Award-winning director Katrin Bowen presents the Canadian Theatrical release of her first feature, "Amazon Falls", at the Magic Lantern Carlton Cinema in Toronto, Ontario for the week of March 18, 2011. The Female Eye Festival (FeFF), now in its 9th year of celebrating international women directors, is pleased to present a feature Gala Presentation of Katrin Bowen's debut, "Amazon Falls", as part of its 9th annual event on March 17th, at 7pm at the Magic Lantern Carlton Cinema. "Amazon Falls" will subsequently screen at select cities across Canada ending in Vancouver at the Denman Cinemas for the week of April 15, 2011. Sales Agent Craig Adlard of Final Cut Films represents "Amazon Falls" in the domestic and worldwide markets.

"Amazon Falls" had its festival premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010 with three sold-out showings. Toronto's critical response to the film was overwhelmingly positive with Chris Alexander of Metro Canada stating, "A groovy, scrappy and unpretentious little Vancouver shot serio-comedy, Amazon Falls is the kind of offbeat, oddball low budget opus that gives Canadian film a good name." Made with the support of the WIDC Feature Film Award, "Amazon Falls" came in Canada's top ten at the 2010 Vancouver International Film Festival.

"Amazon Falls" features a tour de force performance by April Telek (Flight 93) as Jana. April won the Artistic Merit Award for her pitch perfect performance as Jana. She is supported by a stellar, award winning cast featuring: Anna Mae Routledge (Harpers Island, 16 Wishes); Zak Santiago (Young Blades, Alice); Ben Ratner (Fathers and Sons, Da Vinci's, City Hall); William B. Davis (best known as "Cancerman" from The X-Files); Tom Braidwood (The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen). Director Co-producer Katrin Bowen was bestowed with the Women In Film & Television 16th Annual Artistic Achievement Award for her stunning vision and compelling direction.
