The Right Choice, the new short film from award-winning director Tomisin Adepeju, will make its world premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in January 2018.
28-year-old Tomisin and his team will soon be jetting off to Utah to rub shoulders with Hollywood’s elite; and where their 10 minute film will be screened for thousands of industry professionals and members of the public.
Shot over 2 days in the heart of Kings Cross, The Right Choice follows a husband and wife who, with the help of an adviser, must answer three seemingly harmless questions to create their perfect designer baby.
Brought to life by a team of BAME cast and crew, The Right Choice beat over 8000 entries to be one of only 17 shorts selected for the International Narrative Short section.
Being shown at Sundance is widely considered to be one of the highest achievements that a short film can achieve; and many such filmmakers go on to make great strides in Hollywood.
Written and produced by Vijay Varman, the film stars Michelle Greenidge (The Intent, Casualty, Sorry We Don’t Help Darkies, and in Spring 2018 “Nine Night” at The National Theatre, London); Krystine Atti (The Tinder Problem) and, in his debut film performance, Obi Iwumene.
Tomisin said: “I am hugely honoured to have The Right Choice screened at the Sundance Film Festival. My team and I have worked tirelessly for nearly 2 years, and to have our hard work recognised in this way is immensely thrilling.”
