The Maverick Movie Awards just announced their 2016 nominations and Branko Tomovic’s intense and atmospheric thriller Red received a total of 8 nominations – including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Ensemble Performance, Best Cinematography and Best Special FX.

Red is a short dark thriller set in the underground world of illegal organ smuggling, the so-called red market. Niklas, a surgeon who lives a life of solitude and is tormented by self hatred, performs regular illegal surgeries for the red market. He works together with Mia, a young prostitute who lures her clients in and drugs them. Niklas is looking for a way out of this dark world, but owes his life to their violent crime boss Ed, who would rather kill him then let him go.

Produced by House Kino in the UK and Kaissar Film in Germany, the film stars Dervla Kirwan (Ondine, Ballykissangel, The Silence, Doctor Who), Francesca Fowler (Doctor Who, Rome, Closure) and Branko Tomovic (24: Live Another Day, Fury, Entity, The Bourne Ultimatum).

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.
