GOIN' BACK TO TEXAS
Cypress Babes hit Venice Beach
plenty of stuff has been happening here. It has mostly been
prospective, though, which accounts for the lack of journal entries.
The big news is that EvenHand has been accepted at the South
by Southwest Film Festival in Austin (March 7 - 16). For details
on screening times, places and the kick-ass EvenHand ASCAP SXSW
party featuring the music of MIKE DOUGHTY and LOS
MESCALEROS, please visit the Film
has also been accepted at the Florida
Film Festival, where it will play in competition with ten other
American independent feature films. The only problem is that SXSW and
the Florida Festival are simultaneous. So, I will bounce back &
forth a bit, attending all three SXSW screenings and the jury
screening & closing night gala in Florida. It should be a busy but
little film will also screen at the Memphis
International Film Festival (late March), the Nashville
Independent Film Festival (late April) and the Edinburgh
International Film Festival (August). You may recall that we were
supposed to screen at the Edinburgh Early Spring Showcase, but the
event was canceled. The good news is that they bumped us up to the
August event, which is, frankly, much more prestigious.
I urge you to visit the Film Festival page and check out the dates
& times for all of the above festivals. Any new festivals will be
added there, too.
mom-in-law sent me the following article from USA Today:
hope some little distributor with deep pockets reads that article
right before screening EvenHand.
people have asked me if I liked Training Day. I never saw it.
The thought was too terrifying. On the surface, it's the same film as EvenHand:
two cops, the idealistic kid and his world-weary partner, fight their
way through the job. With tragic consequences. Knowing just that much
about it, I didn't want there to be even a hint of influence one way
or the other as I was editing Evenhand. I've heard it's pretty
good, but a very different film than mine. EvenHand is much
more about the subtle shifts in color between black & white, as
opposed to the clearly delineated good & bad of that other film.
about some more AFI Fest pictures?
