)-- On Thursday October 22nd, "9909" producer Bryan Brewer and "9909" lead actress Kelly Pendygraft, will pick up awards for Best Science Fiction Feature and Best Actress in a Feature. The award ceremony will take place at BLVD at 199 Bowery Street. The New York International Independent Film & Video Festival Proudly announces the awards from a highly successful July Los Angeles event, which ran from July 30th through August 6th at the Regency Fairfax cinema. The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF) is one of the largest independent film festivals in the world. Following on from the film's successful Hollywood screening in September, "9909" will take New York's independent film fans by storm with a one-off midnight screening at independent and art film powerhouse, Cinema Village on Friday October 23rd. Cinema Village has showcased independent and art cinema for more than 40 years and is one of the oldest continuously operated art cinemas in the city. 9909 “How Much Do You Know About September 9, 2009?” “The film evokes a host of impressive 1950’s forebears such as “It Came From Outer Space” and “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” with an obligatory nod to 1968’s “Night of the Living Dead.” Variety. “Fans of goofy monster movies should dig it, zombie fans should dig it, and for those who still tend to gravitate towards the old invasion films of the 50’s should definitely dig it. Don’t expect the pretty polish of Dimension's newest teen-friendly fan favorite, or the star power to draw millions upon millions of viewers - rather, expect a fun, not-too-serious flick with a sound story, fair dialogue and a few memorable scenes. 9.9.09 in short, is a worthwhile investment in respect to both time and money.” Fangoria “Wexler and Brewer make a damn fine team.” Fangoria “Keep an eye out for that name - Bryan Brewer.” Fangoria “…one of the better independent flicks I’ve received as of late.” Fangoria “9.9.09 is a fun, low-budget indie, deftly helmed by veteran cinematographer Howard Wexler.” Buzzine 9909 “How Much Do You Know About September 9, 2009?” A mystery surrounds a small town that was wiped out on September 9, 2009. Set sixty years in the future, an old woman (Kelly Pendygraft), engages the help of a reporter (Mary Kate Schellhardt), to unlock the secret of a government conspiracy to cover up the events that took place on September 9th, 2009. An aged Sarah Prescott tells the story of that eventful day when a meteor crash landed near a small American town and unleashed alien life-forms that gradually infect all the town’s residents. The plot interweaves the discovery of the meteor with the reappearance of one of the town’s residents, Deke Evans, (Bryan Brewer), who has been incarcerated 10 years for a questionable murder. With the help of the local Sheriff, (Lochlyn Munro), the remaining survivors try to make sense of it all and discover the source of the infection. Starring: Lochlyn Munro (Unforgiven, White Chicks, Daddy Day Camp), Bryan Brewer, Kelly Pendygraft (Elizabethtown), Brian Guest (The OC), David Jean Thomas (Fight Club, Star Trek), and Mary Kate Shellhardt.
