      Vancouver-based director Connie Cocchia’s debut feature, When Time Got Louder, is set to land on the big screen later this month. 

      The movie is scheduled to open at Cineplex Fifth Ave on March 31, with a Q&A with cast and crew scheduled for later that weekend.wh

      When Time Got Louder follows college student Abbie (Willow Shields, The Hunger Games) as she lives away from her family for the first time. She’s torn between her new life and her love for her brother Kayden (White Rock's own Jonathan Simao, Turner & Hooch), who is non-verbal and has autism. Elizbaeth Mitchell (Lost) and Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale) also star as Abbie and Kayden’s parents.

      Munro also has a starring role in Until Branches Bend, another debut film from a local director that’s arriving in cinemas this month.

      When Time Got Louder was nominated for Outstanding First Feature at the Frameline San Fransisco International LGBTQ Film Festival last year, and was an official selection at VIFF 2022.

      Cocchia, who also wrote the movie, studied film at the University of Southern California before doing a Master of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia. 

      When Time Got Louder will be showing at Cineplex Fifth Ave from March 31 onwards.
