Maderfilm announces next feature after 'Displacement'

After a successful worldwide premiere to a sold out crowd at the Hollywood Reel Independent film fest garnering an award for best Sci-Fi film, and Bruce Davidson wins for best supporting actor, the film screened at the well respected long running USA film festival in Dallas and star Courtney Hope was featured on local TV!

Courtney has seen her latest project the Microsoft video game 'Quantum Break' released and she has been featured in the LA times and Dallas morning newspaper!

 Here is her exclusive interview from 2014 on the set of Displacement @

Dan's Movie Report strongly recommends the film as a must buy, and also recommends that the company that picks up the film give 'Displacement' a theatrical release.The  film has big screen qualities for an indie, and needs to be shown to the widest audience available. The two hour film is of the highest quality and has distinct 'repeat watch factor'. With the award winning talents of Bruce Davison and Susan Blakely, and emerging star Courtney Hope, 'Displacement' is my top pick for the first half of 2016, and rates a 9 out if 10!

'Sampan' Exclusive Photos! Hot New Short Film Starring Juju Chan! Directed By: Maxim Bessmertny

Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report readers. As all of you know for the past couple of years my site is ALL exclusive! I do not share news nor photos from other sites. It gives me great pleasure to help out independent film makers, and being that I am a judge on a film festival, I feel that spot lighting talented film producers, directors, and actors from around the world is a necessity. Today, a brand new film entitled 'Sampan' comes across my desk. Talented NYU Tish grads get together in HK to make this cool short film shot entirely on a boat.

'Sampan' is directed by
Maxim Bessmertny

Pontus Maximus Productions
 The director of photography is Jordan Quellman. 'Sampan' stars Juju Chan, Kenneth Cheung, and Anthony Hackett.

Keep watching this space for more exclusives later in 2016! Keep it locked for a massive Juju Chan contest as well! Dan's Movie Report, your home for independent exclusives! As soon s a trailer for 'Sampan' is posted my readers will be the first to know! Check out the IMDB page for 'Sampan' @
