The 2018 Festival is set to highlight darkly creative work from storytellers all over the world. Fresh as a Daisy Films, formed in 2016 by Lloyd Darling and Connor J. Campbell, is a Vancouver-based production company specializing in short films that explore the fragility of the human condition, and the consequences of neglecting the things we require to truly be alive. The company has an interest in dark drama, thrillers and horror.
We aim to produce a cultural event for the city of Vancouver, specifically for those who share our love of the macabre and are fascinated by what terrifies us as well as what unites us. Our goal is to celebrate the power of storytelling and provide a platform for emerging talent in the world of independent filmmaking.
The Festival is curated by the programming team including Director of Programming David Taylor, Artistic Director Lloyd Darling; VP of Shorts Connor J. Campbell, Executive Producers Jon McIntyre, Majd Qutob and Meghan Hemingway.
