‘Hashtag’ Continues Award Winning Festival Tour

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Runic Films and Little Empire Productions’ are proud to announce that Hashtag, our prescient science fiction short film, will continue its festival tour! Extending onto 4 continents, with 4 award wins, 14 nominations, and now 17 acceptances.

Hashtag is a thought-provoking short science fiction drama that examines a looming future where social media dominates our lives and “X” (Gigi Edgley), the top online celebrity, finds the true cost of her popularity. The short film also stars Erryn Arkin, Juliet Landau as the voice of “Te’a”, and Simone Alex.

 

X lives the dream; she’s connected, adored, and instantly validated by her hundreds of millions of followers. The ultimate influencer, celebrities like her are all we watch, all we listen to, all we care about. Yet one thoughtless remark reveals how fragile the tower of public adoration really is.

 

A co-production of Runic Films and Little Empire Productions, Hashtag is an ambitious vision of our possible future in the tradition of classic science fiction storytelling. For more about the project, please visit https://runicfilms.com/hashtag.
