WEDNESDAY, MAR. 14: Because You’re Too Nice is an independent romantic comedy that will be making its international debut at the Bermuda International Film Festival.

Christopher Frith, a Bermudian with several previous films in BIFF including Impulse, which screened in the competitive shorts category last year, was the editor and one of the executive producers of the feature-length project.

He, along with director/producer Daniel Parra, will be travelling to the screening to present the film.

According to a press release, the film follows a young man named James after his girlfriend leaves him because he’s ‘too nice’.

He soon begins a cycle of horrific dates ranging from self-obsessed talkers to alcoholic wives, all happening at the same table where his ex dumped him, annoying the pretty hostess, Sarah, to no end.

With the help from his friends and father, James comes to learn what it truly means to have people in life who love you the way you are, but that all gets threatened when his ex comes back.

The film was shot in the summer of 2011, financed in half by Bermudians who supported the vision of the project and donated funds.

Because You’re Too Nice is a clean, family friendly film that takes a heartfelt look at the search for a committed relationship in a dating world full of ulterior motives.

The film will be screening March 17 at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute in the Tradewinds Auditorium at 9pm.
