SUPPORTING FILMMAKERS IS OUR MISSION

Metro is dedicated to supporting Filmmakers with Promotion, Screenings, and Distribution. 

Fragile Storm is one of the Seasons Best

2018 SUMMER BEST

In Fragile Storm, award-winning filmmaker Dawn Fields (USA) pairs the talents of Lance Henriksen (Alien) with a Dramatic Horror story about an isolated couple who struggle with violent outbreaks brought on by one spouse’s deadly illness.  "Caring for a sick loved one is a challenging journey" - said Fields, who both co-wrote and directed the short film. “I wanted the audience to understand the ‘terror’ that is often felt on both sides."  Visit FragileStorm.com for more.  Nominated for Metro's Best of Show.
