Independent film distributor Entertainment Squad is making the family friendly adventure film Dolphin Island available on all major VOD platforms this month.
The film, from writer and producer Shaked Berenson (Turbo Kid, Space Dogs: Adventure to the Moon), takes place on an island paradise, where 14-year-old Annabel lives with her fisherman grandfather. She is surrounded by an extended family of loving but quirky neighbors and her best friend — a dolphin named Mitzy.
Everything changes when her maternal grandparents arrive with a shifty lawyer to bring her back to New York. It’s up to Annabel and her friends to figure out how to save the day and keep Annabel on the island she loves so much.
Dolphin Island was directed by Mike Disa (Space Dogs, Hoodwinked Too!) and features a cast that includes Peter Woodward (The Patriot), Dionna Lea (No Bad Days), Tyler Jade Nixon (Dolphin Kick), Bob Bledsoe (Parks & Recreation), and David Raizor (You Can’t Take My Daughter).
The film was produced on Grand Bahama island between Hurricane Dorian and COVID-19.
A portion of the profits goes to the local cast and crew in the Bahamas. According to a press release, “the filmmakers felt compelled to create a project that could help the Bahamas rebuild after Hurricane Dorian. The film brought jobs and resources to the island nation as planned, but no one could have expected that a pandemic would close travel shortly after the filming was complete.”
