Ted Rivera and Thomas Fahrner's independent film production and distribution company, Silicon Valley Film Ventures will sell a slate of films and media products to foreign distributors in the 2005 American Film Market (AFM) November 2-9, 2005.
One of the most anticipated films for sale is Silicon Valley Film Ventures first independent film project, Night of the Chupacabra, a 35mm feature length Sci-Fi/Comedy. This campy comedy is creating quite a stir amongst sci-fi fans and film enthusiasts at film festivals locally and internationally.
"We are very excited about being honored with “Best of Festival” awards at three film festivals in one month" said producer, writer and director, Ted Rivera "and look forward to shopping it at the 2005 American Film Market."
The honors hail from the North American Science Fiction Film Festival, The International Hispanic Film Festival, and The Berkeley Video & Film Festival.
With awards piling up many distributors have clamored to sell Night of the Chupacabra, but Tom and Ted have opted to retain the rights to their own films as well as the films of other independent filmmakers.
