EuroTrip

Greetings from Amsterdam,

Our first screening, the int'l debute, was packed--huge audience, great crowd, they all seemed to really like the movie. However I realized, for the first time, that the film has an incredible amount of slang language. Bill and Libby especially, they all have their own way of speaking-- so a lot of moments that I always laugh at were a bit confusing to audiece members that speak English as a second language. But it really was a great success, everyone was very nice.

The questions ranged from why I didn't show more of the nurses aids (good point) to the emotion and feelings it brought, especially within the context of one's own elderly family members (glad we did something right). Later in the night, a woman came up to me and said "excellent film" but did you ever think of not shaking the camera so much? Haha.

We got a huge review in a paper today--although I have no idea what it says and am trying to find out. And online I have found a couple more reviews:

European Premiere

I am traveling to Amsterdam today as Room 335 will be having its European Premiere. I have never been but the festival had an advance screening of the film a few weeks back so there are a few reviews on Google from Dutch newspapers--problem being that they are in Dutch so I have no idea if they're good or bad reviews.

Regardless, check out the website

Well that was a great day--WINNERS!

Phoenix Film Festival has been really incredible. Everyone here has been so nice, and the films have been great. I am very happy to report that Room 335 has won BEST FEATURE! Quite an honor with so many other amazing movies.

So that is very exciting. I am exhausted but tomorrow I will certainly give more details.

We also won the San Fernando Int'l Film Fest tonight. Jonah had the chance to go. It is all very exciting.

Getting some sleep--thanks again to everyone and don't forget to send a note to Bill, Tammy, and the whole gang. More tomorrow!

Dry Land

When you say hi to someone in NYC they look at you like your crazy. Hi? Hi, what? In Phoenix you can't walk a few steps without running into smiling faces. Perhaps it is the weather, maybe the festival which has taken over the city... It is incredible how nice everyone is and how well the festival treats its filmmakers. The film played today in the morning and the turn out wasn't bad. I mean a Friday at 9:30AM? Who would come? Well, people were there--with popcorn and everything. Saturday and Sunday we have some great screening times (3:15 and 5:45) so I will report back soon.

And keep emailing Bill!!

As I write this, Jonah is in San Fernando, California presenting the film to (hopefully) a packed audience. Wish him luck since he gets nervous in front of large crowds....

Malibu International Film Festival is April 7-10 and Room 335 is lucky enough to be an official selection!! Hopefully we can make it out there since California has been very nice to us so far.

Thanks again to all of those who have been emailing and helping us out through this wild process. It has been very exciting. And keep contacting Bill, Tammy and the entire gang!!

Thank You CINEQUEST

San Jose was wonderful. We packed out two screenings and met some incredible people. Today we were informed that a woman and her children, after watching the film, signed up to volunteer at their local assisted living facility. Now that is so cool.

Adopt a Grandparent is a great organization and one that can help youngsters like me visit places like Harobr Place.

More soon.

So unfortunately we're not sure yet when the film will be playing in NY. Although in the next month or so we shoud hear if there is interest from a few festivals in NYC. Hopefully we can play here soon.

by 2030, it is projected that one in five people will be age 65 or older--that is a lot.
