"A breathtakingly emotional space ride with dazzling effects and true heart."

- Starburst International Film Festival

"FTL, directed by Adam Stern, is short enough to feel like a piece of flash-fiction, but the sheer majesty of its images—viewing the Earth from orbit, looking out at Mars, soaking in every detail of the spaceship as it detaches from its dock—makes the film feel like a ripple on the vast, unexplored ocean of space."


Ethan Kane, a NASA Astronaut and decorated pilot, has recently retired from active duty to spend more time with his wife and young son. As he tries to adjust to a quieter life on the ground, he’s approached to fly one last mission...testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft. While the world watches, Kane takes The Longshot on its maiden voyage. 

FTL is currently screening at festivals around the world, and is the recipient of multiple awards including Best Sci-Fi Film at the 2017 Roswell Sci-Fi Film festival, Best Sci-Fi Film at the 2017 Sci-On! Film Festival, and Best Sci-Fi Film at the 2017 Top Shorts Online Film Festival. Additionally FTL was nominated for Best International Short Film at the 5th Annual Philip K Dick Science Fiction Film Festival.
