A Simon Fraser University student is taking his independent full-length feature film on the road this spring and summer.

Brendan Prost is finishing up the final semester of his bachelor of fine arts degree, with a major in film production.

He's also the writer-director-producer-editor of Spaces and Reservations, his third self-finance feature film.

It was shot in the summer of August 2012, between school semesters and using a small crew of student filmmakers working on a budget of $5,000. Post-production was completed through the 2012/13 school year.

Now, Prost is taking the film on the road on what he calls a "DIY screening tour," booking dates in Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Victoria.

Spaces and Reservations is defined as an "intimate relationship drama," telling the story of a young couple who are torn apart by malaise and infidelity.

"It's a really raw, candid and naturally performed film that features the talents of a number of local actors," Prost said in an email.

It stars Zach White as Jamie and Taylor Hastings as Kacie. They're joined by Jennifer Kobelt, Arianna McGregor, Dayleigh Nelson, Ian McAndrew, Teresa Laverty and Aaron Turner.

Local audiences will be able to check it out onscreen at the Rio Theatre, 1660 East Broadway in Vancouver. It will show on Tuesday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m., and then again on Tuesday, May 27 with two shows - at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.
