Hot on the heels of getting into Tribeca, we’ve had more great news this week. I’ve just received confirmation that “The Pool” has also been selected for the 2010 Newport Beach Film Festival, located in Orange County, California. Newport Beach Film Fest is one of the world’s biggest and runs for five days during the end of April.
“The Pool” is a Filmbase funded short film and was produced by Dave Leahy (Warrior Films) and Fiona Kinsella (Jumper Productions), and was also co-funded by Dave Ffrench (Cladda Films) of LA.
It is a drama about three teenage boys who break into their school swimming pool one night in order to stage a macho breath holding contest. But as the night goes on the loud, brash Charlie begins to tease the overweight, child-like Sam.
After a girl (Katie) arrives whom they all fancy, tensions start to escalate and by the end of the night none of their lives will ever be the same.
