Dim the Fluorescents is one of ten films - and the only Canadian film - featured on The Globe and Mail's list of the films that could redefine the year in cinema, alongside Call Me By Your Name, Phantom Thread, The Shape of Water, The Disaster Artist, The Post and other highly anticipated titles. Critic Barry Hertz describes Dim the Fluorescents as "an intoxicating feature debut [that] cements [Daniel Warth's] status as one of this country's most exciting, raw voices".

Our first review is in from St Louis International Film Festival, and it's a pretty glowing one courtesy of We Are Movie Geeks: "The last ten minutes are a daze, an acting tour de force that leaves you so numbed up in astonishment that there’s hardly any doubt [it's] one of the headlining acting moments of the year. If the Oscars even dared consider a film like Dim The Fluorescents, it’d be difficult to imagine any actresses other than Armstrong and Skwarna winning the top prize. They, along with a great script by Miles Barstead and Daniel Warth, pummel you into a sobbing mess." Read the full review here.
