"Do not come looking, do not worry about me, I will having the time of my life." An early festival teaser trailer has debuted for an indie "coming-of-age horror" film set to premiere this week - playing at the 2022 Slamdance Film Festival (the smaller Sundance spin-off). The film is called Honeycomb and it was filmed on Cortes Island, British Columbia in Canada. Five girls stray from society on the hunt for something more special… you can find them if you follow the sound. "A beautiful and raw love letter to youth, Honeycomb is a bold and promising feature debut for Fast, who shares writing credit with Emmett Roiko." The film stars a breakout cast of young talent including Rowan Wales, Sophie Bawks-Smith, Jillian Frank, Destini Stewart, and Mari Geraghty. Not the best teaser, but it seems like a good one to keep an eye on anyway.
Here's the festival teaser trailer for Avalon Fast's Honeycomb, direct from YouTube (via Collider):
Honeycomb is the feature debut from 21-year-old Canadian filmmaker Avalon Fast and it was shot in the summer of 2019 on Cortes Island, British Columbia with a cast and crew of her peers and friends. Inspired by the fear of the future, the uncertainty of growing up, sun-soaked summer, and the unique experience of being a teenage girl. Honeycomb is directed by up-and-coming "girl horror" filmmaker Avalon Fast, making her feature directorial debut after numerous other short films previously. The screenplay is written by Avalon Fast and Emmett Roiko. The film is premiering at the 2022 Slamdance Film Festival this year. No other release dates or premieres are set yet - stay tuned for more updates. First impression? Looking good?
