The Surrey-based short thriller film “Odd Girl” is now live on YouTube & Facebook via ALTER – an online portal for genre films. “Odd Girl” features local Vancouver stars including Taylor Kare (Julie and the Phantoms), Kayla Janelle Tellier (The Waiting Game), Parmiss Sehat (Designated Survivor), and Trevor Horne (The Right One). It has spent the last year screening at multiple international film festivals where it has won numerous awards, including Best Screenplay at both the Oscar-qualifying Rhode Island International Film Festival and the UK-based Southampton International Film Festival.
Based on a suburban school in Surrey, where ostracism is commonplace, the short film revolves around two friends, Dylan (Kare) and Mindi (Sehat), who fall victim to the obsession of Belinda (Tellier), the odd girl out. But, Dylan quickly realizes that the repercussions of excluding the odd girl takes on a whole new meaning when she isn’t who, or what, she initially appears to be. “Odd Girl” is a unique bone-chilling story that warns about the consequences of the all too familiar phenomena of exclusion in high schools.
The short thriller features cinematography from CSC award-winner Farhad Ghaderi, production design by Tawni Botelho, sound design by Justin Aucoin, make-up by Terra Boreen, wardrobe by Milena Krondl, and editing by Gloria Mercer. The film is directed by Rami Kahlon and produced by Andy Wong.
