NBF has also produced several other projects including the short film Get She Water, which is slated as full-length feature that Lije will direct somewhere in 2012, and the feature For Whom He Tolls where NBF teamed up with the FU MAN KRU producers. For Whom He Tolls is now stepping into the festival circuit for release later this year. NBF and FU MAN KRU are currently creating a thriller/horror web series that is very hush-hush, slated to be shot in early 2012.
NBF produced a short film in early 2011 called Closing Doors that was written by William Wanek and directed by Lije Sarki. It had a nice little run in the festival circuit with screenings in Tampa (GIFF), Detroit (DIFF), Los Angeles (DWF), Saugatuck (Waterfront), and New York (NYCIFF). Just when the season seemed to wind down the film was asked to be screened in the NewFilmmakers New York winter series and in Detmold, Germany at the ISFF. Check the site for more up-to-date info.
NBF is wrapping up two Pilots, one called Underbelly which Ryan Philander wrote and is directing and Lije is acting in, and UnReal which was written by the Evigan family and directed by Greg Evigan. Both Pilots are in their final stages of post.
