SXSW World Premiere: Conspiracy Thriller ‘Broadcast Signal Intrusion’

Queensbury Pictures, the Chicago and London-based production company, will have its world premiere of Broadcast Signal Intrusion, a conspiracy thriller directed by Jacob Gentry, at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival. The lineup was announced today by the festival. The film stars Harry Shum Jr. (All My Life, Glee), Kelley Mack (The Walking Dead), and Chris Sullivan (This Is Us, Stranger Things). This film is based on a feature script developed by Queensbury. It was written by Tim Woodall and Phil Drinkwater, a British writing duo who submitted the screenplay through New Blood, an initiative set up and run by Queensbury partner Giles Edwards since 2017 in partnership with the U.K.’s premier genre event Frightfest. The film was executive produced by Harry Shum Jr. and produced by Greg Newman, Brett Hays, Giles Edwards, and Nicola Goelzhaeuser.

Broadcast Signal Intrusion was inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in the Windy City in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day. The film is an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares, confronting our deepest, darkest fears of both man and machine.

Synopsis for Broadcast Signal Intrusion

While logging tapes of decades-old TV broadcasts, video archivist James (Harry Shum Jr.) discovers a surreal and disturbing clip that James believes is the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking. His discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the videos may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension; and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth.
