Omniboat: A Fastboat Fantasia

Lopsided, tonally off, and rarely complimentary, portmanteau films are more often that not miss than hit, but what happens when we mix Miami speed cigar boats and it’s the Bow + Arrow Ent. (Madeline’s Madeline) and the Borscht Corporation folk who are the captains of the deck? With Omniboat: A Fastboat Fantasia we’re expecting craziness to ensue with a collection of stories from a collection of filmmakers that have yet to be confirmed (however Filmmaker Magazine’s Dan Schoenbrun did mention the likes of Lucas Levya, Jillian Mayer, Bernardo Britto, Terence Nance, Celia Rowlson-Hall, the Daniels) and some name actors with filming having taken place last summer.

Gist: This is an epic Miami adventure told though a series of collaboratively created interwoven narratives centered around a sick cigarette speedboat.

Release Date/Prediction: With were expecting an unveiling at Sundance, now we think this might end up playing at Locarno.
