Written, edited and directed by Aaron Katz, Cold Weather stars Cris Lankenau (Katz’s Quiet City), Trieste Kelly Dunn (United 93) and Raul Castillo (Don't Let Me Drown). "It's great fun to see [Katz] play with the detective/mystery genre," states IFC President Jonathan Sehring. "This is one of the most original American independent films of the year." The film will be released through the IFC in Theatres platform, which offers on-demand viewing starting the same day as their theatrical premieres.
Cold Weather, a Holmes-esque mystery about friendship and family camaraderie, follows Doug, who is just returned to his hometown of Portland, Oregon to live with his sister and kick-start their adulthood. The return and subsequent disappearance of Doug's ex-girlfriend throws the siblings into becoming detectives trying to solve a real life mystery. Cold Weather will next screen at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
