1250 Broadway, 27th Floor New York, NY 10001


The Colchester Independent Short Film Festival — set in a historic setting that was once a Roman city, designated as the capital of Britannia — will be hosting its fourth annual event, tomorrow evening, May 4, 2024, at the Curzon Colchester. Its goal is “to find talented filmmakers and help them promote their work.”
And to that end, we’re pleased to announce that among the projects screening at this year’s event, you’ll find DON’T CHOKE — written and directed by Sonny Baez. This short explores “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 CISFF for this honor, and congrats to our entire DON’T CHOKE family. (Their Instagram tags follow.)
