The process has begun and Arcadia has paid entry fees for several festivals this week (2 dozen and climbing!) The fests are researched and entered through the great websites FilmFreeway and Withoutabox. Now the wait begins! Will any of these festivals give us the thumbs up? Tune in and find out!
Perks from the $55 level and above have shipped, which included the Just-A-Jar letterpress poster, postcard and some extra goodies.
Postcards should go out the week of June 1-5. Soundtracks will end up being a digital download, and will be ready the 1st 2 weeks of June. Private links to the film (still in color correction mode) should go out this week.
Thanks again to all who contributed, and I hope you can all see the film someday. There will be a special screening in Athens on July 31.
Join us for a one-night-only event! Athens’ own Yang Miller stars in a surreal journey underground, trapped in a lost world of poets, performers and mysterious figures. The film was made on a tiny budget in Marietta, OH—written, shot & directed by Andy Hall.
Athens is home to Ohio University and a great Film Studies program. The Athena Cinema is one of downtown Athens unique historic treasures. In their own words:
“Our goal as a community- based, mission-driven theater is to bring the finest premiere art house cinema to Southeastern Ohio. Today, we are a nonprofit cultural institution, dedicated to our mission and committed to creating a wide array of film-going experiences.”
