Side With The B Side: A Canadian Indie Music Comedy

Ever wonder why there aren’t many mainstream comedies made in Canada? Ever wanted to watch one about a music festival?

Well, now you have a chance to help get an indie comedy about music made. All you have to do is head on over to the Cinecoup Film Accelerator website, which is a new model for funding feature films here in Canada, and vote for an entry called The B Side.

Submitted by a filmmaking team helmed by director, Ally Pankiw, The B Side follows a group of friends trying to get to the fictional Montreal Music Week. If the film wins the competition, the production team will get up to $1 million in production financing and a guaranteed release in Cineplex Odeon theatres. Cineplex has partnered with Cinecoup and their program aims to disrupt the traditional feature funding models currently being used in Canada, while also shedding some light on new filmmaking talent.

The B Side team will shoot at a real music festival if they get funding and want to work closely with the Canadian indie music scene to build their soundtrack. The concept trailer features great comedic talents from Toronto like Alex Tindal, Thomas Rivas and Adam Niebergall and you can check it out and rate it here.

If you're a Canadian musician and you want your music featured in this film, send us an email and we'll put you in touch with the team!
