Posted: March 5, 2012

As we post the 22nd Annual CINEQUEST Film Festival (CQFF) is in full swing in sunny California.

It’s a festival thatshowcases premiere films, renowned and emerging artists, and breakthrough technology—empowering global connectivity between creators and innovators”...and among that great group is a the talented team behind the independent film from the great province of Newfoundland & Labrador - BEATDOWN.

Matter of fact the film that stars St.John’s, NL actress Marthe Bernard (Republic of Doyle) has been creating quite a buzz among festival goers - making the list of “Top Picks” for the event (source)

It’s great to read that kind of news and wonderful to hear from the film’s director and co-writer herself NL's own Deanne Foley who sent us these pictures from amidst all the fun.

Here’s a shot with cast members Daniel Beirne (Henry) and Marthe Bernard (Fran) along with Deanne Foley, being interviewed on the Red Carpet at CINEQUEST by San Jose's On the Town host Judy Verona Joseph. Taken Friday night (03/02/12) - just minutes before their US premiere.
