Amy Jo Johnson’s debut feature film THE SPACE BETWEEN, which is in competition at this years Whistler Film Festival will be released in Canada by IndieCan Entertainment. IndieCan Entertainment will release the film theatrically in Spring 2017 following its run on the festival circuit.

Amy Jo Johnson’s THE SPACE BETWEEN is an unexpected offbeat comedy/drama and dissection of what fatherhood really means. Can a father continue to love his baby child after he discovers that it may not be his? How do you deal with the fact that your wife may have slept with a nerdy college student without telling you, as a way of compensating for your own infertility? The film features an ensemble cast of industry veterans, including Amy Jo Johnson (“Felicity”), Michael Ironside (TOP GUN), Kristian Bruun (“Orphan Black”), Jayne Eastwood (CHICAGO), and TIFF 2014 Rising Star Julia Sarah Stone (WET BUM).

“Since I first read the script in February 2014 I have wanted to help Amy Jo and Producer Jessica Edwards get their film made and out there for audiences to see. I think they are both super passionate and talented filmmakers who will be a true force in our industry for years to come. I am super excited to be working with them on the release of their film THE SPACE BETWEEN ,” says Avi Federgreen, IndieCan Entertainment.

“Two years ago we wrote the first draft of THE SPACE BETWEEN in a mad dash to submit to the IndieCan 10K challenge,” said writer/director, Amy Jo Johnson. “We really wouldn’t be here today without that initial incentive. Having Avi apart of the project is a perfect full circle and great way to start the next leg of this films journey.”

THE SPACE BETWEEN was 2014 IndieWire Project of the Year and part of the 2015 Tribeca All Access Program, the 2015 Telefilm Micro Budget program, and developed in the Producers Lab at the Canadian Film Centre. The film premiered earlier this year at the Shanghai International Film Festival.
