Memphis Messiah

The Indie Memphis Film Festival -- the Soul of Southern Film -- will screen The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah. It seems we're on a bit of a roll this week, what with this news, plus IFC screening the trailer, and the Underexposed Film Festival (in Atlanta) inviting us. Why do I feel like the film must be GREAT when people accept it but subpar when fests reject it? I'm so easily swayed by everyone else's responses, LOL.

The IFC thing is stressing me out, of course, because we still have to get the trailer "re-edited" -- because we never did a hi-res version of it. We used the old standard-definition pre-color-correction footage back when we did it. And since so much of the trailer was created by my terrific editor, I have to rely on him to get it done, and he's quite busy, so I'm sweating the deadline a bit here.

How many of these have you been able to attend? Any?

not nearly as many as i would have liked. i went to the premiere in florida, which ended up being a small affair, and to the screening series in DC because i was already on the east coast nearby (and that was also a small affair).

i'd like to see it in one crowded theater in my lifetime. :-)

I might be in atlanta anyway during Underexposed, so i'll check that out. memphis sounds like a good one, but scheduling with my teaching requirements will be a problem.

i am DEFINITELY going to Virginia Film Festival as i think that's going to be a good one, with some industry presence.

Dear Mr. Hansen

We'd like to congratulate you for having your film "The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah" accepted into the Dan Buck Films By Friends of Mine Festival.

We hope you'll attend. The festival will take place at the home of Dan Buck and your film will be shown immediately following some home movies of five-year-olds playing soccer.

We hope you'll be able to attend.

Sincerely,

Dan Buck
Founder, President of the DBFBFOMF

That, my friend, is life on the film festival circuit. Sadly.
