New York, NY – February 6, 2010 – The inaugural 2010 SoHo International Film Festival - presented by Made In New York and the Office of New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, will be held from February 18 – 21, 2010 in New York City.

The festival will close with Rolfe Kanefsky’s neo-noir ‘One In The Gun’ at the festival lofts theater, 394 Broadway 4th Fl. New York, NY 10013, at 7:30 PM on February 21, 2010. This is the world premiere of the film.

Leading film critic, Betty Jo Tucker of Reel Talk Movie Reviews, wrote, “One in the Gun [is] a fascinating film noir with bizarre David Lynchian undertones. Written and directed by Rolfe Kanefsky, this intriguing movie boasts a complicated plot, mysterious characters and disturbing surprises. It wallows in situations involving seduction, robbery, madness and murder. And every time you think you’ve got things figured out, something happens to make you think again.”

Kanefsky, whose works are well known in the horror genre, wrote the script in three months, drawing inspiration from the classic noirs. “Film noir is one of my favorite genres, it truly draws on every facet of human emotion, so when Steven (Man, lead actor) and I were looking to create a project, it made perfect sense and created what I feel was a great vehicle to showcase the range of his talent.” 'One In The Gun' also stars Robert Davi (Die Hard, The Goonies, James Bond’s “License To Kill”), Katherine Randolph (Jarhead, Black Ops) with Steven Bauer (Scarface, Primal Fear, Traffic) and James Russo (Public Enemies, Donny Brasco, Beverly Hills Cop).

Charles Papas, author of It's a Bitter Little World: The Smartest, Toughest, Nastiest Quotes from Film Noir sums it up with “as long as life disappoints, men and women betray each other, and what we need gets us killed, there'll always be film noir.”

“We are honored to present the World Premiere of Manmade Entertainment Productions', 'One In The Gun' as the festival’s official closing night feature film presentation,” said SIFF Co-founders, Luis Pedron and Jorge Ballos. “We were impressed and honored to receive entries from around the world and feel that this film not only met, but surpassed our festival mandate of cutting-edge digital films that honoring traditional forms of storytelling.”
