Downhill, by Patricio Valladares
A few weeks ago we informed about the first of the films we will be having in the 2016 edition of the festival. And now, we are ready to announce the fourth title.
Right now, we are happy to introduce Downhill, directed by Patricio Valladares and written by Barry Keating along with the director himself.
Summer holidays are round the bend, and rushing downhill is a great and exciting outdoor activity for you to practice during the summer too. The protagonists of the film might get into some trouble when they go riding down the hill. Watch out if you intend to go downhill this summer! If you do, we hope that you don’t end up in such a situation because you and us have a date next November 11th in Molins de Rei.
Starring Natalie Burn (The Expendables 3, Awaken) alongside Bryce Draper (Muck, Bound). These two actors are keen on horror movies and know very well what it is like to face all kind of dangers on the silver screen.
The film was privately premiered at Blood Window Midnight Galas that take place every year during the Cannes Film Festival. Since then, word to mouth seems to have been working well because it has attained about half a dozen of confirmations for different festivals round the world.
