Clean Freak screening at da Vinci Film Festival

You haven't heard me mention any screenings for Clean Freak of late, and the reason for that is that there haven't been many. The film inexplicably hit a streak of rejections that I really don't even want to talk about.

Well, it's not really inexplicable. It's a 27 minute film that's part documentary and part mockumentary and also contains a wry and subtle commentary on the nature of documentary filmmaking in general. So, um, yeah, it's been a real crowdpleaser.

I'm being too hard on it, perhaps. In actuality, I think the running time is the largest factor in the film's many non-selections, because fests prefer their short films to be 10 minutes or under, as a general rule.

Anyway, I've completely buried the lede here -- Clean Freak has been selected to screen in the 1009 da Vinci Film Festival. The fest takes place March 6-8 in Corvallis, Oregon.

Does that mean it will screen 1000 years ago?
