The Seattle True Independent Film Festival (“STIFF”) will hold a sneak peak “Secret Screening” of a new feature film produced by local shingles’ EKE Pictures and Invicta Media Group, in collaboration with the Seattle Film Institute.

The film – which may or may not be called “The Periphery Project, Volume 1” (we can neither confirm nor deny this leak) – is slated to be screened in Seattle on Wednesday, May 8.

“We’re still crafting our film festival and distribution strategy,” said Producer Victor Kepler. “Holding a ‘secret screening’ in collaboration with our friends at STIFF is a perfect way to share this experimental and provocative film right now, as well as learn from an audience.”

The project was conceived by Steve Edmiston, a local filmmaker and entertainment attorney whose work includes “The Day My Parents Became Cool” as well as the upcoming short “The Maury Island Incident.”

“We have a long history of domestic spying in this country, ranging from J. Edgar Hoover’s files targeting politicians and celebrities, to the post-9/11 surveillance explosion driven by the Patriot Act,” Edmiston said. “The film is an anthology of award-winning speculative fiction from around the world, but it’s also the story of one man’s mission to expose an illegal government operation to spy upon filmmakers – one public access show at a time.”

According to the STIFF program guide, “in the end, it all makes sense – in a kind of Wayne’s World meets The Twilight Zone, updated for the internet generation, in a way.”
