 PATCH TOWN is based on the award-winning short film of the same name, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival 2011. Director/producer Craig Goodwill’s debut feature, PATCH TOWN, will be released theatrically in Toronto and Montreal, and via iTunes and cable Video on Demand on June 5, 2015 through Video Services Corp (VSC). It will be available for presale on iTunes Canada May 11.

In North American folklore the stork delivers babies, but in Russian folklore, babies are born in the cabbage patch. Inspired by the award-winning short film of the same name, PATCH TOWNtells the story of Jon (Rob Ramsay), who has lived a sad life as an oppressed worker at a factory where hundreds of cabbage babies are born. Work on the assembly line is a thankless task of shucking, picking, and processing newborns to go out into the world and to their new adoptive mothers.  But when Jon discovers the awful secret that he and all the indentured workers are actually grown-up and discarded toys, he’ll have to take on a villainous corporation to reunite with his long-lost mother, protect his newfound family, and finally find freedom.
The science fiction adventure film stars Zoie Palmer (“Lost Girl,” Sex After Kids), Rob Ramsay (“Blue Mountain State”) and Julian Richings (CubeWrong Turn).
“VSC is a wonderful home for PATCH TOWN, their passion for independent film demonstrates their dedication to a filmmaker’s vision and their passion for the craft,” said filmmaker Craig Goodwill.
PATCH TOWN bowed at the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival and was featured in the MoscowShanghai, and Fantasia International Film Festivals, among others, and screened as part of the Telefilm Top 10 at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, followed by a Best Feature Film win at the 2014 Canadian Film Festival. And was an audience favorite during its festival run,
“We’re excited for Canadians to have the opportunity to enjoy PATCH TOWN,” says VSC President Jonathan Gross. “The story and cast have great audience appeal and we are confident Canadians will respond enthusiastically.”
PATCH TOWN was produced by David Sparkes and executive produced by Mark Montefiore with support from Telefilm Canada and Pinewood Studios.
