And a teaser for the short has also been released:

Sangalang, along with Producer Lisa D’Alessandro, Director of Photography Brandon Lee, and actors Amanda Wong, Daniel Jeffery, Jaycie Dotin, and Graham Miles are set to show a teaser for the short film at a red carpet event in North Vancouver on November 17 before taking Killing For Spark on a tour of North American and UK film festivals.

The short will be released to the public next summer.
