Watch: Get Ready to Learn 'How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town' in Exclusive Trailer and Poster

When one is planning a party, a few things are essential: snacks, drinks, board games, and maybe an entertainer if you’re swanky. Oh, and maybe some lube. Did I mention this is an orgy?

When disgruntled sex columnist Cassie Cranston (Jewel Staite) comes back to her aptly-named hometown Beaver Ridge to bury her ill-tempered, successful and judgmental mother, she is not so much bereaved as annoyed. After receiving (and spending) a large advance from a book publisher that promises to turn her (fictionalized) sexual romps into a book-length string of essays, she was relying on her inheritance as a means of paying the advance back. Things don’t go as planned, and Cassie is forced to prove to her small-town acquaintances that she is indeed the big-city sex expert that she so often claims to be in her column.

In his third feature film, director-writer-editor Jeremy LaLonde casts an ensemble of hilarious and vivacious characters that prove to be just as outrageous as Cassie’s fabricated sex stories. The film has been screened at numerous festivals including Slamdance, the Cinefest International Film Festival, Edmonton International Film Festival, and the Atlantic International Film Festival, among others. It most recently won Best Feature Film at the Canadian Film Fest.
