SUPPORTING FILMMAKERS IS OUR MISSION

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

NEW STORM LINK IS COMING

Nominated for Best of Show in our Summer 2018 season, Fragile Storm by award-winning filmmaker Dawn Fields (USA) pairs the talents of Lance Henriksen (Alien) with a Dramatic Horror story about an isolated couple who struggle to deal with the increasingly violent outbreaks brought on by one spouse’s tormented battle with a 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 to share your experiences with the condition on a personal video.  You may also license teaching materials.

EXCELLENCE IN FILM

Written and directed by Adam Stern.  A lone astronaut testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft travels farther than he imagined possible. Great acting by Ty Olsson (Supernatural,) Karin Konoval (The Magicians) and Aliyah O'Brien (Bates Motel.)  This short Sci-Fi spectacular was nominated in 2018 for the Excellence in Film Award for Screenwriting. And it's success at other Festivals and over 1 million views early 2018 further support this films merits in the areas of Special Effects composition and Cinematography.  Also watch on Metro's partner, Movies Plus - on Android.

SPECIAL RECOGNITION

The sequel to Billions in Change has changed lives across the globe.  This amazing film enlightens and enables the viewer in many ways.  The man behind "5 Hour Energy" delivers what few other organizanizations have, without asking for a dime, or credit as the creator of two great films.  (Critics may see these films as self serving, but Metro does not.)  See Billions in Change 1 on Metro apps and distribution partner connected TV channels, and of course Billions in Change 2 is here, and on the Metro Android App. Both films deserve an award for great production value and Billions 2 was nominated in 2018 for a Heart of Gold award for its humanitarian context.
