The Coast-to-Coast World Premiere!
Dear MSIAFOM community,
We have AMAZING news...
"Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine" will make its world premiere as an official selection in the 36th Mill Valley Film Festival on October 4, 2013!
Designated as one of the "20 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" by Moviemaker magazine, the Mill Valley Film Festival offers a high profile, prestigious, non-competitive environment perfect for celebrating the best independent and world cinema. With a reputation for launching new films and creating awards season buzz, MVFF is known as the filmmakers' festival, and has hosted such luminaries as Dustin Hoffman, Ang Lee, and Ken Burns.
As the most prominent fall film festival in the San Francisco Bay Area, the MVFF has been known to draw industry presence to support the fall launches of significant new films and Oscar campaigns. We are exceptionally thrilled and humbled that "Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine" has been invited to this same festival that presented the Bay Area premieres of four Academy Award Best Picture winners: "Slumdog Millionaire," "The King's Speech," "The Artist" and "Argo."
But it gets even better! On the very same night, the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. will host a special event screening of the film. It's incredibly meaningful to have our film showcased in this one-of-a-kind event in such a wonderful and historic venue....Let alone 2 premieres on the same night on both coasts!
We sincerely hope that you can attend our World Premieres or one of our other upcoming screenings! Stay tuned for more information!
Spreading the word, telling your friends about our film, tweeting and sharing our Facebook page--all of these things have truly helped and we deeply appreciate it. Thanks again to all of you for your unending support and help in making all of this possible!
With love & gratitude,
Michele & the MSIAFOM team
