EXLCUSIVE SXSW: New 'Plus One' Image Teases College Party of the Year

Tim Perell (Last Chance Harvey) produced +1, and Brothers Strause, Edson Williams, Thomas Nittmann and Guy Botham executive produced.

+1 is a Process Production in partnership with leading VFX company Lola/Hydraulx (The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), which provided the cutting-edge VFX for the film.

The story revolves around three college friends who go to the biggest party of the year, each looking for something different: love, sex and a simple human connection. When a mysterious phenomenon disrupts the party, it quickly descends into a chaos that challenges their friendships -- and whether they can stay alive.

"Dennis Iliadis has created a sexy, thrilling mind-bender that delivers on many levels," Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring said. "We look forward to bringing it to the widest audience possible."

IFC Midnight is a sister division to IFC Films and Sundance Selects and is owned and operated by AMC Networks.

CAA repped the filmmakers. Jeff Deutchman negotiated on behalf of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
