SYNOPSIS - A shocking dinner invitation sends close friends into uncharted territory that will change their relationships forever… A HOME-GROWN COLLABORATION WITH NATIONAL SUPPORT – "AMONG FRIENDS" had its world premiere at the 2009 Montreal World Film Festival.
The entire cast and crew of this production are filmmakers and artists from Montreal. The film was largely financed by its co-producers and made possible by extensive volunteer efforts of professional talent. NFB lent their support for post-production to help bring Among Friends to the screen.
When local actor Nicole Braber proposed the zany concept for this film to emerging screenwriter Barbara Campbell three years ago, they immediately decided to co-produce the project and finance it themselves (on a shoe-string budget). They asked Montreal filmmaker Geoffrey Uloth (of award-winning “Wildflowers” and “The Ecstasy Note”) to direct. Geoff
