Freezing Rain Films (Ottawa)   

Freezing Rain Films is a motion picture production company headquartered in Ottawa.

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.

Freezing Rain Films produced it's first movie in 2007.

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 illness.

2007 "Water Ice Hail, the Cast Interview"

We asked each cast member to channel the character as the actor who portrayed the character.  Yes, I know, a little complicated, but it 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.

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.

2012  "World Peace"
Within 72 hours we wrote the script, shot and edited "World Peace" to meet the requirements of a 72 Hour Film Challenge in 2012.
World Peace won First Place : Viewers Selection.
