Amazon Falls had its festival premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010 with three sold-out showings that generated a media buzz of 45 written articles, 8 radio interviews and 12 television interviews (  Toronto's critical response to the film was overwhelmingly positive with Chris Alexander of Metro Canada stating, "a groovy, scrappy and unpretentious little Vancouver shot serio-comedy, Amazon Falls is the kind of offbeat, oddball low budget opus that gives Canadian film a good name.  And one TIFF capsule review stating, "It was real.  It was raw.  It was gritty.  That's something even this jaded cynic can respect."  The film came in Canada's top ten at the 2010 Vancouver International Film Festival.

Amazon Falls features a tour de force performance by April Telek (Flight 93) as Jana, winning the artistic merit award for her pitch perfect performance as a 40+ year old starlet looking for her big break. She is supported by a stellar, award winning cast featuring: Anna Mae Routledge (Harpers Island, 16 Wishes);  Zak Santiago (Young Blades, Alice); Ben Ratner (Fathers and Sons, Da Vinci's, City Hall); William B. Davis (best known as "Cancerman" from The X-Files); Tom Braidwood (The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen).

Director Co-producer Katrin Bowen was bestowed with the Women In Film & Television 16th Annual Artistic Achievement Award for her stunning vision and compelling direction.  Her previous award winning films include: Almost Forgot my Bones, Sandcastle, Financially Strapped and Someone.

Amazon Falls is the first feature film for Co-producer / Executive Producer Darren Reiter.  A business entrepreneur and music-licensing expert, the Vancouver-based filmmaker has collaborated with award-winning producers and directors.  Amazon Falls is represented in the domestic and worldwide markets by Sales Agent Craig Adlard of Final Cut Films.

Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.
