Join us on February 6th for a PVT CHAT Watch Party @ 6:30 MST, followed by a special Q&A with Writer/Director Ben Hozie and Lead Actor Peter Vack.

Presented by Calagary Underground Film Festival

World Premiere - Fantasia Film Festival

Jack (Peter Vack) is a lonely internet gambler living in New York City. He quickly becomes fixated on Scarlet (Julia Fox) - a cam girl from San Francisco. As Jack learns more about Scarlet, he discovers her unrealized talent as a painter and begins to fall hard for her. His obsession reaches a boiling point when fantasy materializes in reality and Jack sees Scarlet on a rainy street in NYC Chinatown. While Scarlet is clearly hiding her whole truth, milking Jack’s wallet in the process, she also seems to develop genuine feelings for him. Jack has to find out - is their emotional connection real or is he just being taken for a ride?

"PVT CHAT explores what people are afraid of ina world where everything is exposed." - IndieWire

"...somewhere on the edges of Taxi Driver, the films of Abel Ferrara, and the neo-realism of the Safdie Brothers." - Consequence of Sound
