AMERICAN SUNSET marks the latest collaboration between Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTC: GBHL), and its Canadian affiliate Global Universal Pictures (Global Pictures). AMERICAN SUNSET was shot entirely on location in New Brunswick. “It was an honor and a pleasure working with the great people of New Brunswick on this picture. I truly hope to come back soon and do another movie” said Michael Masucci, the film’s Director.

The New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-Operative unveiled the festival schedule at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre on Thursday, and announced that Fredericton-shot AMERICAN SUNSET will kick things off on opening day, November 5th. The 2009 Silver Wave Film Festival will screen a mix of feature films, documentaries and shorts.

Hartland native Angela Cullins, who plays Haim’s kidnapped wife in the film, said the debut will be a special moment. “To have an “A-list” actor like Corey Haim in the cast is exciting. I’m really happy that my first feature was filmed here in NB. I’ve been plugging away at this industry for years and years, so it will be nice to have many of my friends and family in the audience for the film’s premiere. People are waiting to see this movie and it was hard not being able to tell them it was going to be opening the festival. I really consider this my big break.”
