More film festival news: 20 Matches has been accepted into the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) and Dances With Films, a well-established festival based in Hollywood. SIFF is thus far the biggest festival my film has gotten into, and like Nashville it's an Oscar qualifier. And DWF is no slouch; out of the dozens of film festivals based in and around Los Angeles, it's easily in the top 5. It's sure to be a party.
If you're in the Seattle or Los Angeles areas, come see 20 Matches on the big screen. I'll be attending both festivals in person, so you can meet me too. In Seattle, it screens at the SIFF Cinema Uptown on Friday, May 27, at 9:30pm (in the "Devil's Spawn" block of shorts). At Dances With Films, it screens at Hollywood's famous Chinese Theater on Sunday, June 5, at 5:00pm (in the "Competition Shorts 5" block).
It may be a while before I hear from any more festivals, though I did just get accepted into my first one outside the US. They haven't told me when I can make this news public, so for now I'll just say it's in Asia.
