1250 Broadway, 27th Floor New York, NY 10001


Now in its seventh year, the BRIGHTON ROCKS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL — which is based out of the City of Brighton (UK) — seeks “to give maximum support to emerging filmmakers” and is well on its way to becoming “the UK’s main forum for indie and underground cinema.”
Among the films screening at this year’s festivities — which are scheduled from June 25-30, 2024 — you’ll find DON’T CHOKE, a short written and directed by Sonny Baez.
In this “dramedy,” we witness “the toxicity, violence and passion surrounding the end of a marriage.” And we watch as a couple’s child-custody battle unfolds … in a unique way.

Our thanks to all at BRIFF for this honor, and a hearty congratulations to the entire DON’T CHOKE team.
