‘Animals’ Starring David Dastmalchian And Kim Shaw Now On Showtime!

Acclaimed indie film, Animals, is now airing on Showtime!  Directed by Collin Schiffli, who was nominated for the Grand Jury Award in Narrative Feature at SXSW, the film was written by David Dastmalchian, who won the Special Jury Award for Courage In Storytelling at SXSW.  Featuring score by Ian Hultquist (formerly of Passion Pit) and an awesome indie music compilation curated by David Dastmalchian, you’ll be immersed in this gritty story that has received positive reviews by Complex Magazine, IndieWIRE, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and more!
