You guys. I am over the moon thrilled to announce that MOVEMENT AND LOCATION will be premiering at the 2014 Brooklyn Film Festival!
I’ve been attending BFF for years and it’s amazing, I have only ever seen stuff that I’ve loved. They program impressive, gorgeous films and I am so honored and also very fucking psyched to be included in company like this. Also, that our world premiere is in the city where we filmed and where Alexis and I and most of the crew and cast live is SO PERFECT. It is so perfect! Brooklyn is my favorite place in the world and it’s exactly where I most want to screen this film first.
More details as the schedule is finalized, but the festival runs from May 30-June 8.
Here’s where I’m going to get all tl;dr so please feel free to skip the rest and don’t worry about missing pertinent details, BUT. If the making a feature on your own aspect is interesting, in the sense of what the feels are like, this is for you. Because I feel crazy. This whole project has made me crazy, in ways that varied and evolved, for the three years I’ve been in it. From writing the script 17 times, through physical production, through the edit, through the thinking and hoping about festivals and distribution options. It’s all been so hard. It’s been a true pushing-molasses-up-a-sandy-hill kind of situation. And there were many moments when I wanted to give up and/or expected that I was on the verge of needing to. It’s why if you happened to hang out with me in the six months following production, I was insane. I apologize for being insane. I am better now. But YOU GUYS the thing that got me through all that confidence crushing bullshit was imagining what it would be like to watch this movie at a festival, with as much of the cast and crew and my family and friends as could possibly attend. And that’s about to happen. Holy shit. It’s a crazy feeling, no less intense than the crazy that came with figuring out how to schedule a 112 page script in 18 days. But the crazy this time is all joy.
Thank you, you guys. Really thank you.
