Only One has been selected to screen at the Rhode Island International Film Festival. The film premiered at this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival.
About the film: Alex is 25, single and lonely. Unable to deal with life as a singular person any longer, she decides to invest in the services of Doppelganger Locator in an attempt to ‘find herself’ and the meaning of happiness. Through this service she meets Lex- the cool, insightful, more focused version of herself. But is she really the answer to Alex’s problems? Or will Alex find that her contentment lies closer to home than she first thought?
The film stars Geraldine Hakewill (Wasted On The Young) as Alex, Eve White as Lex and Australian film/television legend Sandy Gore (Brides of Christ) as the Doppelganger Locator Consultant. The film was funded through Metro Screen’s highly competitive First Break funding scheme for filmmakers crafting their first film, and a crowdfunding campaign through the Pozible platform. The largest film festival in New England, RIIFF is considered one of the most prestigious film festivals in the US, attracting more than 5200 entries from around the world. It is also a qualifying festival for the Academy Awards Short Film categories. Taking place August 6th -11th in Providence, Rhode Island, RIIFF will be Only One’s American East Coast premiere. The film will be screening as part of the ‘RIIFF Around The World: Hip, Hot and Short’ program on Wednesday, August 7th at 4:00pm.

Only One’s world premiere took place during late June at the Palm Springs International Shortfest in California, where it was warmly received by members of the international short film community. Anita was in
attendance at the screening along with producer Joel Bell and cinematographer Alexander Lee. Anita says that “the experience of attending Palm Springs Shortfest was something I’ll take away with me for
the rest of my life. Meeting other passionate filmmakers and gaining access to programmed events to learn directly from industry professionals was incredible. It was humbling to be acknowledged for all the hard work
our creative team put into Only One and was an important reminder of how much I want to continue to pursue my filmmaking dream.”
Only One was a recipient of Metro Screen’s First Break 2012 and was written and directed by Anita Lee.
