John commented, â€œIâ€™m truly honored to have my film play at such a landmark Sci Fi festival. Iâ€™m also excited that U.S. audiences will be able to enjoy the quality performances of my wonderful Australian cast.â€� Boston Sci-Fi is an 11-day cinematic event held at the historic Somerville Theatre from Feb. 9 to the 19th. The science fiction festival emphasizes emerging directors with distinct visions from around the globe.

Slated for a major North American VOD release by Gravitas Ventures, Alpha Gateway stars Jacqueline McKenzie (Deep Blue Sea, The 4400) as a particle physicist who, following the sudden death of her husband, uses a revolutionary machine to travel to a parallel world to find him again, with dire consequences for her family. Director of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures, Josh Spector, commented, â€œAlpha Gateway is the kind of smart science fiction film that genre and independent filmgoers alike love and we are thrilled to be bringing Johnâ€™s film to North American audiences in the first quarter of 2018.â€�
An impressive array of talent stars alongside McKenzie in this keenly anticipated thriller, including Myles Pollard (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Ben Mortley (Lantana), Haley McElhinney (The Babadook), Shannon Berry (Hunters) and upcoming NIDA talent Ryan Panizza.
