Struggling actor Audrey (Claire Armstrong) and aspiring playwright Lillian (Naomi Skwarna) pour all of their creative energy into the only paying work they can find: corporate role-playing demonstrations. When they book the biggest gig of their careers at a hotel conference, work commences on their most ambitious production to date and the ensuing tensions threaten to derail both the production and their friendship. As wryly funny as it is unexpectedly poignant, "Dim the Fluorescents" is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the artistic life and process in the unlikeliest of settings.
"A Slamdance Film Festival gem... from start to finish, the film is an enchanting portrait that rests on a whimsical yet unexpectedly lovely premise: the unlikely places in which we can create art"
"...a unique take of a familiar narrative...a considerable amount of talent has come together and made it happen."
Winner of Slamdance’s Grand Jury Prize, Dim the Fluorescents is the kind of dynamic, entertaining debut feature that hopefully puts its cast and crew on the map. Taking place in the city of Toronto – which is currently going through its own indie cinema renaissance – director Daniel Warth and co-writer Miles Barstead have put together a film that crackles with energy along its lengthy, surprisingly breezy two-hour-plus runtime.
