Edmonton Premiere! After the final infuriating straw, Dan calls his internet provider to cancel the F—ing internet. Surviving the apathetic gauntlet of support staff, he finally reaches the retention department and their star agent: Gerald. Things are finally looking up for Dan… That is until Gerald makes it very clear just how much he knows about Dan’s browsing history, and how far he’s willing to go to keep Dan as a client.
About the Director:
Ryan Kayet is an up-and-coming filmmaker who excels as a screenwriter, director, and producer. After receiving high praise for his thesis film, LURKER, Ryan co-founded Riverlife Productions with a desire to focus on strong character driven narratives. He directed the Bravo!FACT funded short film, ONE DAY AT A TIME, and several music videos. His previous short, INTERVIEW, a dramatic short about race, power, and the importance of choosing your words carefully, was funded by the Ontario Arts Council and played in several festivals. His most recent project, CANCEL THE F–ING INTERNET, is a hilarious short about privacy and the universal struggle of dealing with the cable/internet companies. Ryan is currently writing his first feature.
Originally, the team was planning on creating this film as part of the Toronto 48 Hour Film Project, but scheduling conflicts prohibited them from doing so. Instead of losing out on the experience, they decided to collectively write and produce a short film intended for the internet. They filmed over one weekend on a budget of $300. After seeing the initial edit and landing a killer score from James Ervin, the team realized they had something really special. They opted to do a lap in the festival circuit instead of just releasing online as originally intended.
