“Island Zero,” the old-fashioned 21st-century horror film penned by Tess Gerritsen and produced by Lincolnville-based Donkey Universe Films, made its New England premiere at the Boston International Film Festival earlier this month and is headed back home.

“Island Zero,” which runs 99 minutes and was filmed locally last year, will be screened at Lewiston/Auburn’s Emerge Film Festival. The showing is 4 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at Auburn’s Community Little Theatre, 30 Academy St. Former Camden-Rockport Middle School pals Josh Gerritsen (director) and Mariah Klapatch (producer) will be in attendance, as will be a number of cast and crewmembers. Earlier in the day, Klapatch will participate in a panel about Women in Horror, moderated by Kate Kaminski.

The film did well in Boston, Klapatch said.

“We were well received and had quite a few horror fans in the audience that gave us positive feedback,” she said. “It was fun!”

“Island Zero” is up for two Emerge awards, having been nominated for both Best Maine Film and Best Feature. For more information about the festival, which opens Thursday, April 27, visit emergefilmfestival.org.
