Bill Sage fires one up at the kick-off party

Just before heading off on vacation with the wife & kids, I got word that EvenHand has been accepted in the American Directions section of the American Film Institute's AFI Fest 2002 in Los Angeles. The festival runs from November 7th through November 17th at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. EvenHand will have it's world premiere at the festival, screening twice.

Phebe in London (remember the picture of Helen?)

Now in its 16th year, AFI FEST is the premier international film festival in Los Angeles. AFI FEST 2001 showcased more than 114 films from 37 countries, including the World Premiere of Academy Award winners MONSTERíS BALL and NO MANíS LAND as well as Golden Globe winner IN THE BEDROOM and Academy Award Nominees ELLING, PROMISES and CHILDREN UNDERGROUND.

Details on the screening dates and times are now posted on our Film Festival Page. Here's a link to the AFI Fest website:

Needless to say, we're pleased and excited to be part of a prestigious international film festival. And we hope to see y'all in LA in November.
