Night Voices - (2023)

An aging and isolated, smack-talk radio host who is stuck in a cycle of hopelessly demoralizing monotony, makes a life-altering decision while on air.

 

Starring Gorman Ruggiero (from Calf Rope), Night Voices is a psychological thriller that stretches the previously self-imposed boundaries for Dadley Productions with a film that is intended for more mature audiences and therefore is not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Night Voices was launched onto the film festival circuit on March 30, 2023, and has already won over 70 film awards from around the world. Internationally, Night Voices has already won seven awards from the Milan Gold Awards, in Italy, seven from the Paris Film Awards in France, and four from the Crown Wood International Film Festival in India, as well as several domestic awards across the country including from the Crown Point International Film Festival (CPIFF) in Chicago, and over 20 other festivals from coast-to-coast in the U.S. since April of 2023.

 

"‘Night Voices’ is a must-watch for anyone interested in meaningful storytelling

and exceptional cinematic craftsmanship." - shortfilmsmatter.com

 

"A profoundly stirring portrait of buried animosity, deep-seated pain, and the desperation of hopelessness... and the overwhelming potency of innocence, ... gets painted on the canvas of a wholly believable and fully essential core message." - CPIFF film critic, Kirk Fernwood.
