(Good) Festival News, at last!

At long last, I have a festival ACCEPTANCE to report. The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah will screen at the inaugural Cosmos Internat'l Film and Video Game Festival. Admittedly, this is a new fest, and I know nothing about it, but I am pleased to have gotten over this hump.

The other nice thing is that it's in Gainesville, Florida, which is my wife's hometown and home to the University of Florida. Since my in-laws are nearly lifelong residents of G-ville, I already have a place to stay at no cost!

I'll add more to this info as I get more to report. I have to run to teach a production class right now... but WOO-HOO (or, to reflect how I've really been feeling lately, PHEW!)

Excellent news Prof. Hansen. And now a couple of us can say "we knew it would happen eventually". :)

Enjoy your breakthrough day. I suspect other festivals may look a little more kindly on your film now that 1 festival has programmed it.

Congratulations! Make sure you live it up when you're there -- most festivals are sponsored by liquor companies, after all!

Thanks guys. I hope that you're right, Sujewa. I sincerely hope this means good things in store for the future.

Now I have to get to work finishing the film!
