Cannabus Culture Films Getting Mile High!

COLORADO:  Cannabis-loving film buffs in Colorado rejoice: Infinite Wellness Center is bringing the CannaBus Culture Film Fest to Fort Collins Colorado with cannabis themed movies and stand-up comic Rob Cantrell on September 22, 2017 and September 23, 2017.

The festival’s co-sponsor, Infinite Wellness Center, is the largest Northern Colorado marijuana dispensary and September 2017 is their Anniversary! The Fort Collins tour stop promises to elevate its legal state audience to new levels by combining top billing features and short films with a cannabis stand-up comedy act.

The festival’s stand-up comic Rob Cantrell has spent over a decade headlining theaters and comedy clubs across the country and appearing on major TV networks like NBC, HBO, and Comedy Central. He is a frequent guest on the popular podcast “Doug Loves Movies”, where he has hung out with Edgar Wright, Mark Wahlberg, TJ Miller, and many others along side Doug Benson. He’s written articles for High Times Magazine and has toured in the Off Broadway play “The Marijuana-Logues”. Rob will be performing his cannabis themed stand-up comedy act to CannaBus Culture Film Fest audiences on both nights of the festival.

True to the mission of its inaugural event last year in New York, this year’s festival aims to “celebrate entertaining and educational films about cannabis in hopes to further transform, stimulate change, and share the expanding horizons of cannabis culture in the U.S.”, according to their website. The festival showcases a variety of feature and short narrative films covering numerous genres in efforts to “give filmmakers mainstream audience exposure and provide a forum to share their work with distributors and the general public.”

The first screening kicks off at 8:30pm Friday September 22, movies showcased will include feature film “Baked in Brooklyn” by Rory Rooney; short films “Trippin’ With the Folks” by Meghan Weinstein, and “Zion Curtain” by Wendell Nielson. “Baked in Brooklyn” features Josh Brener, Big Head from Silicon Valley, as a guy who decides to sell weed after losing his job, but things soon go out of hand as demand of business and paranoia start to take over. It also co-stars the beautiful Alexandra Daddario who went on to “Baywatch” right after making the film.

The second screening on Saturday September 23 begins at 8:30pm, screening that night is feature film “Dark Harvest” by James Hutson; short films “The Lotus Gun” by Amanda Milius, and “Recalculating” by Diane Weis. “Dark Harvest” co-stars Cheech Marin in his first cannabis movie since his final “Cheech and Chong” film of the 80’s and it also co-stars A.C. Peterson know for his work on “Shooter” as well as other Hollywood feature films. The feature’s lawless marijuana landscape creates a web of sexual intrigue and violence in which the cop and grower are forced to settle their moral differences to stop a cunning psychopath.

You can purchase tickets for $15 each night, or pay $25 for a full Festival Pass that gets you into both screenings on September 22 and 23, 2017.

“Grow House” Movie To Be Released In Theaters On April 20, 2017

CALIFORNIA: Whoever said, “money doesn’t grow on trees” never met Darius, Pat and their friends. Fans of comedy have a hilarious new film to celebrate – Hollyweed Films presents “Grow House” starring DeRay Davis, Lil’ Duval, Martin Starr, Snoop Dogg, Faizon Love, Malcolm McDowell, and Lin Shaye, as well as features a cameo by Charlamagne Tha God.

Written and directed by Mark “DJ Pooh” Jordan, “Grow House” will be released in theaters April 20, 2017.

Synopsis:

There’s a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of California and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald’s. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Pat (DeRay Davis – “EMPIRE”, “21 Jump Street”, “GI Joe”) and Darius (Lil Duval – “Scary Movie 5″,”Meet the Blacks”), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. Only one problem, knowing how to smoke marijuana doesn’t mean you know how to grow it.

After taking a trip to “Dr. Doobie” (Malcolm McDowell – “Entourage”, “The Mentalist”, “Home Alone”) to become legally certified growers, they gain access to a Bel Air mansion to use as a “grow house.” Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.
