Gone Fishing has now been accepted into a number of new festivals, which is great news. Certainly the glitziest of these festivals is the Santa Barbara Film Festival that is running this month from the all important Jan 22nd to Feb 1st – I hope to be flying out to LA for some meetings and a drive up the coast to Santa Barbara every few days for festival screenings and events. The video above is from the website.
Luckily, there is a BA January sale on right now, so flights will be quite economical.
Other upcoming events include…
The Tiburon International Film Festival (March 19-27) in California, where the first prize is apparently a golden fishing reel! Also, we are in the Sedona Film Festival also on California (Feb 24th to March 1st), which was recommended to me by a film maker friend, Michael Afendakis, at the Bahamas Film Festival. Again, I am really looking forward to this one.
Also the articles in both InCamera and Variety have starterd to generate leads in LA, and so it’s looking more and more likely that I will be spending time out in LA LA Land very soon.
Other festivals include the Reel to Real International Film Festival for Youth – Feb 20 – 27 Vancouver and the Calgary Underground Film Festival – Apr 14 – 19 – Alberta, Canada. If you live near any of these festivals, do let me know. Especially if you are an Associate Producer as I may not attend all of them and you could attend as our official representative.
Onwards and upwards!
