Collective: Unconscious

2016 | Drama | Feature | More info on IMDb


Five independent filmmakers adapt their dreams!

What if you could let someone else experience your dreams? For example: A man and his grandmother hide out from an ominous broadcast. The Grim Reaper hosts a TV show. The formerly incarcerated recount and reinterpret their first days of freedom. A suburban mom has the beast growing inside of her. And a high school gym teacher runs drills from inside a volcano.

Whay is this Festival hit-film free to watch?
We premiered the movie to a sold out screenings at SXSW, where we became the first ever anthology film to play in Competition. From there, we took the film out on the festival circuit, racking up great reviews, free drinks and even the occasional distribution offer along the way. But all festival runs must end, and we’ve made the decision that it’s time to get the film out into the wider world. That’s why, on August 9, we released “collective:unconscious” on the internet. For Free. - Dan Schoenbrun, producer
