The sun-kissed and never-been-kissed indie coming-of-age comedy follows three friends all trying desperately to find themselves, while trying not to drive off the road in the process.
Filmed on the road across America, Summerland is modern-day social media Cyrano comedy about finding yourself and where you belong.
The poor cast and crew though – they’re going spend the next few weeks explaining to everyone “no, not THAT Summerland!”
This second Summerland of the summer is a Canadian indie about a road trip across the US to the Summerland music festival.
Bray (Chris Ball), Oliver (Rory J. Saper), and Stacey (Maddie Phillips), are three friends determined to make it to the festival, no matter what it takes. Embarking on the road-trip in high-spirits, there’s more than just music waiting for them at the end of the rainbow.
Bray has plans to meet Shawn, a boy he met on an online dating site he’s convinced is questioning his sexuality. The problem? He’s been pretending to be Stacey, Oliver’s girlfriend, to get close to him.

The film is directed by Lankyboy, a directing duo made up of Kurtis David Harder (Shudder Original Spiral, Incontrol) and Noah Kentis.
