Premiere Info and Other Big News!
Hello to all of our amazing backers,
I know we’ve been quiet lately, but we have been working hard and steadily on the film, and we have some GREAT NEWS to catch you up on.
Our film will premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival in March!
The SXSW festival is the perfect place to debut “Alive and Kicking” to the world. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world come to watch a number of carefully selected movies. We are one of only 139 films premiering at SXSW, chosen from over 7,000 submissions! It is an exciting honor to be part of such a terrific list of films.
Not only that, Indiewire picked us as one of the 7 Hidden Gems out of 139 films at the festival (and the only documentary)! Here is the link to the article so you can read more: http://www.indiewire.com/article/7-hidden-gems-in-the-2016-sxsw-features-lineup-20160202
You will notice in the article that we have a new title for our film: “Alive and Kicking.”
You’ll also see that Blumhouse Productions has come on to executive produce our film and help us find distribution. Blumhouse is responsible for the very popular, Emmy-winning HBO true crime drama “The Jinx,” and we’re excited to be working with them.
While we’re thrilled to be showing the film at SXSW, that doesn’t mean the film will be quite done then. We will still be working on the film after the festival to get it ready for distribution. Once we know more about distribution, we will be able to set up a reward time schedule for those of you who purchased the film as a reward.
Always remember, our good news is YOUR good news. Please continue to tell your friends about us, to visit our site, and to support us as we cross this finish line together. Thank you all so much!
