Surreal Film Short ‘The Crooked Eye’ Has Los Angeles Premiere in Dances With Films Independent Film Festival
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 6, 2009
“The Crooked Eye,” the latest film short from film and television character actor, D.C. Douglas, will have its Los Angeles premiere on June 9, 2009 at 5 p.m. at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 as a part of the Dances With Films Independent Film Festival. Chosen by the festival to be a part of an exclusive block of CGI shorts, the film will be discussed by a panel from the Visual Effects Society prior to the screening. Tickets are $ 12 and can be purchased via the Dances With Films website.
Dances With Films supports and celebrates the true independent film spirit by mandating that only films without celebrity actors, writers, directors or producers will be selected for festival competition. Though the film is narrated by Academy Award Winner Linda Hunt, “The Crooked Eye” was accepted due to the independent nature of the production, which was adapted for the screen, directed, produced, edited and financed by D.C. Douglas. In addition to Mr. Douglas, only three talented visual effects technicians, led by Pency Kinnard, created the CGI environment of the 19-minute film.
Starring Fay Masterson (“Eyes Wide Shut” with Tom Cruise) and Katherine Boecher (NBC’s “Heroes”), “The Crooked Eye” spends a day in the life of Sharon (Ms. Masterson) as she struggles with a recent divorce and a current perception problem.
Part live action, part animation, the film dreamily weaves between past and present, delicately painting a psychological portrait of a troubled woman. “The Crooked Eye” is a visually stunning adaptation of Betty Malicoat’s short story of the same name.
Having already played the 26th Miami International Film Festival and the 40th Nashville Film Festival, “The Crooked Eye” is now playing up and down the West Coast this month, most notably at the prestigious Palm Springs International ShortFest at the end of June. Only five months into its festival run, the film has already become an official selection of eleven festivals.
Aside from personal film endeavors, D.C. Douglas is primarily known for his on-camera and voice over work. His high profile projects include NBC’s “Boston Common” and the celebrity GEICO campaigns with the likes of Little Richard, Joan Rivers and the late Don Lafontaine.

“The Crooked Eye” will soon be available for rent via IndiePix Films and iTunes. You can purchase a DVD from the Amazon movies section for only $ 10.99.
