Film Details

Writer: Matt Russell

Year of Release: 2015

Running Time: 13:30

New England Connection: Delià was filmed in New Hampshire.

Both writer and director are currently based in LA but grew up in New England.

We have always wanted to film back home. There is such rich culture and unique character ingrained in this part of the country which makes for great story telling. We credit much of the film's success with the rugged beauty of New Hampshire which during winter certainly presented its challenges for filming but being such an integral part of our story we had to make it work.

We hope to be returning to the area soon to begin work on the feature.

His directorial debut short film "deliá" will had its world premiere at the 2015 International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography "Camerimage" in Bydgoszcz, Poland in November. The film was awarded best short drama at the 2015 New Hampshire Film Festival.
