Quick stats about the movie

Filmmaker’s statement

Kelly Zombor says:

“I have always been fascinated by our ability to convince ourselves that what we ‘think’ constitutes reality. How we behave, make decisions and act based on our notion of what’s real.

Sometimes what we think is completely out of touch with reality and, if we’re lucky, we get to see our flawed thinking and make changes before it’s too late.

Goner reminds us that life is sudden. Goner was in development for over a year. It was shot entirely on location in Calgary, Alberta. The film was 100% crowdfunded using Indiegogo.

Goner was an official selection at the 2012 Calgary International Film Festival and was nominated for best short and people’s choice award at the 2013 Lewiston/Auburn Film Festival.”
