Best suspense movies at NYIIFVF
November 30, 2006

The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF) proudly announces Star Circle Pictures (SCP) has won the award for BEST SUSPENSE SHORT for the N.Y. premiere of “SAMARITAN” at its 2006 festival.

NYIIFVF is passionate about exposing films and documentaries of emerging filmmakers from all over the globe,” says NYIIFV Festival Executive Director and Founder Stuart Alson. “Star Circle Pictures had demonstrated it’s skill with new technologies, being the first in the World to complete a movie with the Panasonic AG HVX-200 High Definition Camera. More importantly, with ‘SAMARITAN’ SCP demonstrates it’s skill at telling a compelling story.” Writer/Director Kimball Carr had also been nominated for BEST DIRECTOR.

“Though new technologies are rattling the foundations of cinematic self-expression,” SCP Producer Ethan Marten says, “story will always be King, and Star Circle Pictures its loyal subject – no matter how much we love those technologies. We are proud to be receiving both Kimball’s Best Director nomination and this Award for BEST SUSPENSE.”

NYIIFV Festival wrapped eight days of film screenings, world premieres, industry panels and after-parties November 16. The festival, known as “the voice of independent film,” will showcased more than 225 international and domestic features, shorts, documentaries and animations.
NYIIFV is the place to have your projects seen and reviewed by the best of the best,” comments Editor Dave Sardella (Micro Cinema Magazine). “This world-renowned festival can be the launching pad to a successful career for aspiring directors and producers. Executive Producer of NYIIFVF Mr. Stuart Alson comments, “We were excited about our line-up of films and filmmakers from all over the world. The festival represents a new wave of independent filmmakers and offers a unique opportunity for members of the film industry.
With Samaritan “Star Circle Pictures is remaking moviemaking,” according to Adam Penenberg of Fast Company Magazine. This High Definition motion picture is reminiscent of classic Twilight Zone – suspenseful and dramatic. “SAMARITAN” explores why we fear what we do not understand, and that maybe mankind must accept “that the truth may not be what we want it to be.”

“No film was used to make Samaritan. No tape. It was shot straight onto

memory cards and editing began on set,” says SCP Producer Ethan Marten. “When wrapped — after two nights and 81 set ups — Samaritan was already in a rough cut form having never left our possession.”
