Film will receive its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March 10

In the science fiction-thriller First Light, Sean (Théodore Pellerin) and Alex (Stefanie Scott) go on the run after Alex has a close encounter with mysterious orbs of light that leave her with extraordinary powers. As they flee from their families, the police, and a covert government agency, the pair find themselves at the center of an unprecedented event in human history: First contact. But as Alex’s powers grow stronger and more dangerous, Sean must decide whether staying with her and discovering the truth behind her transformation is worth dying for.

First Light is written and directed by Jason Stone (The Calling, Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse) and costars Saïd Taghmaoui, Percy Hynes White, and Kate Burton from Scandal and Big Trouble in Little China.

The film will receive its world premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival on March 10. More information about the movie’s SXSW screenings can be found at the festival’s website.
