Recognizing the power of social media, the producers of the much anticipated Canadian indie film Moon Point held a contest on their Facebook page, asking bands to submit songs that had a road trip theme. http://bit.ly/moonpointmusiccontest

Over 150 entries came in, and so good were the bands and their songs that although producers set out to choose just one,  they ended up selecting four: Frankie Whyte and the Dead Idols (“Keep Walkin’”); Diana Z (“All I Want”); Teresa Boase (“Here Today”); and Final Thought (“Wrapped Around Your Finger”). http://bit.ly/moonpointmusicwinners

Moon Point’s soundtrack features an eclectic mix of both well-known as well as emerging Canadian artists,” says producer Avi Federgreen, adding “It’s definitely a CD any music fan would want to have. In addition to City and Colour, audiences will hear tracks from Cuff the Duke, Great Lake Swimmers, Emm Gryner, Danny Michel, Oh Susanna, Jory Nash, The Danger Bees, Michou and more.”

Moon Point CDs will be sold at select AMC screenings starting February 3rd, 2012, independent record stores around Toronto and direct from Indiecan Entertainment, the film’s distributor. The digital soundtrack is currently available on iTunes. http://bit.ly/itunesmoonpointmovie

Moon Point is the story of Darryl Strozka, a socially-awkward and ambitionless 23-year old who decides to prove to his family that he is not the loser they think he is by tracking down his elementary school crush – now an obscure B-movie actress shooting a horror film in nearby Moon Point – and bringing her to a family wedding. Darryl enlists the help of his disabled best friend, Femur, to travel with him, plodding hundreds of miles in a wagon hooked to the back of Femur’s electric wheelchair.

Cisterna’s feature is written by Robert Lazar, produced by Cisterna and Christian Potenza, and executive produced by Avi Federgreen.  The film also includes an assortment of popular Canadian actors in cameo roles, such as Art Hindle, Jayne Eastwood, Linda Kash, Laurie Elliott, Jessica Holmes, and James Hartnett, just to name a few.
