Soiree to Celebrate Local Award-Winning Film’s Release and International Success

“HazMat”, the Miami-made film that garnered international notoriety in the film festival circuit, celebrates its official release, Tuesday, April 1 from 8 pm – 10 pm at Tarpon Bend Coral Gables, located at 65 Miracle Mile. Winner of “Best Horror Film” at the Berlin Independent Film Festival and Massachusetts Independent Film Festival, “HazMat”, is now available to the public, and its team is ready to indulge in a few libations and delve into a Q & A with horror fans and local film supporters.

April Fool’s Day seems befitting to fête “HazMat”, whose plot revolves around a practical joke gone terribly wrong. For the special event, Tarpon Bend will offer two-for-one-drinks and have their full menu available for those wishing a nosh. “This is a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate a film that has represented Miami around the globe. As a filmmaker, one of my main goals has been to exemplify the diversity that this town has shown me”, says writer, producer and director, Lou Simon of White Lotus Productions. The lovely mix of local actors has recently amassed national recognition with lead actors, Norbert Velez and Aniela McGuiness, receiving “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” nominations at Chicago’s Indie Horror Film Festival.

Deemed a “triple threat”, Ms. Simon will also formally announce casting choices for her next feature film, “Agoraphobia”, a supernatural/psychological thriller that will have audiences at the edge of their seat. The Cuban-American filmmaker scouted several locations for “Agoraphobia”, including L.A. and Key West, but ultimately selected the Magic City once again. Currently in pre-production, the film is slated to begin shooting in Miami, June 2014.

“HazMat” is now available for digital download or rent on: Xfinity Comcast, scroll to “HORROR” and select “HazMat SD”; iTunes:;
