We are pleased to announced the second feature film confirmed for 2012 will be Vladimir Blazevski’s black comedy Punks Not Dead. Currently still in the film festival circut, Punks Not dead has won numerous awards including Best Film, Best actor and Best screenplay, as well as the prestigious EAST OF THE WEST “Crystal Bear” Award at the International Film Festival Karlovy Vary in 2011.

The film takes the form of ‘road-trip’, where an aging ‘Punk’ living on the fringe of society is given the opportunity to reunite the members of their one-time cult punk band after many years of separation. He embarks on a journey to reunite it’s former members and it is on this journey where hilarity ensues.
