Freezing Rain Films is a motion picture production company in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
More than a decade ago we began as a small band of volunteers who felt they could make a better movie than some we watched on VHS or DVD via the video rental store. Over time we realized it would take much more work and professionalism than originally anticipated. We now approach productions with an 80/20 rule (80% preparation / 20% execution).
Freezing Rain Films has been involved in the production of hundreds of short films and a handful of feature films since producing it's first movie in 2007.
Moving forward we are primarily interested in working on Ottawa productions, however we are open to collaborating outside Ottawa.
If you have a production for which you are seeking collaboration, please contact Freezing Rain Films:

World Peace won First Place : Viewers Selection.
2008 "Water Ice Hail, Tue"
Tue is not short form for Tuesday . . . it is the French word
for Kill. A little Canadian bilingualism in the title. Yep,
another group of people got together and died horrible deaths simply because
they played with something they should not have touched. Featured one
of the cast members from "Water Ice Hail" delivering and retrieving the
cause of their deaths.
2007 "Water Ice Hail, the Cast
We asked each cast member to channel the character as the actor
who portrayed the character. Yes, I know, a little complicated,
was a hilarious compilation interview after it was assembled. A real
crowd pleaser, especially the part where Macho Man described the
recovery process from his painful groin injury, on set, in a tent, with
one of the other cast members. Confused? There are many
fine performances in this special feature. A collector's item truly worthy
of whatever price you have to pay to view it. But seriously, I've asked
the behind the scenes production team to make a copy available for
viewing here in the near future.
2007 "Water Ice Hail"
An award winner at the Danse Macabre International Horror Film
Festival, Kingston, Ontario, which we are considering remaking with the
missing character. Originally there were to be four young women on a
camping trip that went horribly wrong, but one of the young women
called in sick on the first day of production. We suspect it has
something to do with not wanting a pile of steaming bloody pig
intestines falling on her head, or maybe she really did suffer a sudden
