“The most underrated film of 2018... A tonic against the muted naturalism that has come to define indie style.”

- The AV Club
 

“Exceedingly clever… there’s no shortage of entertainment to be found [as] it builds to an operatic crescendo of truly rapturous acting.”

- Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

"One of the year's strongest debuts!"

- Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times

“Hilarious and heartbreaking. The performances and directorial vision are colossal. Warth makes an intoxicating feature debut here and cements his status as one of this country's most exciting, raw voices.”

- Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail

"Dim The Fluorescents" is a film about the friendship and creative partnership between struggling actress Audrey (Claire Armstrongand aspiring playwright Lillian (Naomi Skwarna), two best friends who pour their creative energy into the only work they can get: corporate role-playing demonstrations. When they book the biggest show of their careers at a hotel conference, they begin their most ambitious project to date and the ensuing tensions threaten to derail both the production and their friendship. As wryly funny as it is unexpectedly poignant, "Dim The Fluorescents" is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the artistic life and process in the unlikeliest of settings.
