Riddle of Fire, a fantastical and whimsical tale described as “the coolest debut from Cannes”, is set to premiere on the Icon Film Channel on May 6 for 30 days. The film, shot beautifully on 16mm, combines elements of Romanticism, British folklore, and the western genre to celebrate the power of imagination. It has garnered critical acclaim at prestigious festivals including Quinzaine des Cinéastes, Toronto International Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and Sitges International Film Festival in 2023.

Directed by Weston Razooli, Riddle of Fire features a talented cast including Lio Tipton, Charles Halford, Austin Archer, Lorelei Olivia Mote, Phoebe Ferro, Skyler Peters, and Charlie Stover. The story follows three adventurous children in Wyoming who embark on a journey across the American West to collect a blueberry pie, facing challenges from poachers, witches, huntsmen, and fairies along the way. The film explores whether their bonds of friendship will be enough to lead them home.

After its exclusive premiere on the Icon Film Channel, Riddle of Fire will be released in selected UK cinemas starting on June 7.
