Official Selection: Stranger Danger

Whistle Girl fears the world itself, and she’s not afraid to show it… through her “stranger danger” whistle. But, everyone is weirded out by her, her pathetic sounding whistles, and her odd behavior instead of her whistle-blowing powers! So, when Whistle Girl unexpectedly encounters a young man of similar qualities, will she whistle him away, or find something much more kindred?

Director: Annique Arredondo

Originally from San Diego, California, Annique formally emerged into film with her short, and directorial debut, El Otro Lado (The Other Side) in the 2010 Ridley Scott Parallel Lines short film competition. With only two months of experience from an intensive film course that same year, her and her team placed Top Ten in the competition, inspiring her to go back to school where she graduated with her MFA in Filmmaking in 2013.

Her thesis film, Dream With Me, was an official selection at the 2014 Capital City Film Festival. Most recently, she has delved into comedy by directing episodes for the web series, Sprinkles and Buttons, and the short film, Stranger Danger. She has continued in the vein of comedy and is currently developing a female-driven webisode series of her own. She has also completed her first original comedic television pilot.
