Yup, that's right, my new comedy feature Date Number One will be playing at the cool Seattle indie film venue Northwest Film Forum (or, as it is known on some shady street corners: NWFF) the weekend of May 19 - 21. 6 shows are scheduled, and hopefully this will be the first of many Seattle engagements for this flick. Reviews, stills, maybe a trailer, additional play dates, benefit screenings info, an updated website are all coming in the next couple of weeks.
If you are a indie film/art/culture blogger type person or a film booker type person for an indie film venue, let me know if you want to see a screener DVD for the film. I am going to have a batch of them available Thu 2/16.
For people who've already requested a screener months ago, fear not, they will be on their way to you next week. Hopefully the film will be good Valentines Week entertainment for ya.
I am going to start submittin' the flick to film festivals late next week. Gotta update my Withoutabox account & see what neat festival deadlines are rolling up. I know I will be submitting to Chicago Underground and Los Angeles Film Fests. I am going to try to play as many festivals as possible.
All the ultra-low/"no" budget indie/D.I.Y. distro adventures will be chronicled in sweet detail at the movie's official blog.
Thanks, and start putting some nickels & dimes in a piggy bank so that you can catch a showing of Date Number One when it plays in your village or in case you want to fulfill that burning, unstoppable desire to buy the DVD.
