What a great night! The event Friday a week ago at the Chattanooga IMAX Theater can only be described as a success in every way.
We had a great crowd. Not every seat was taken but it was clearly full. The red carpet ceremony before the show, accompanied by period musicians, was a total hit (I wasn’t exactly sure how that would go). Afterwards, we had Q & A. The program said for ten minutes, but the several dozen people who stayed wanted to stay even longer. The rest of the night we had an afterparty next door where about 50 people showed up to discuss and process what they’d just seen.
I plan to write a separate post about crowd reaction, questions, postives and criticisms about the show. Until then, just know that overall the premiere was a great evening, everything I had hoped for.
We have submitted the film to the following: Sundance Film Festival, San Francisco Film Festival, Portland Film Festival, Malibu Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, and the Berlin Independent Film Festival. We should find out in two or three months if we get accepted to any of these events or a few others we plan to enter.
Here’s a bunch of photos!
