I have some exciting news to share... "Josephine and the Roach" will be screening at three festivals over the next couple months.
-- First off, 'Roach is a finalist at Hatchfest in Bozeman Montana, which is happening October 3-6. It's a TED-like summit where brilliant people give lectures, and some five short films are screened. The exact screening time will be forthcoming.
-- Josephine and the Roach is an official selection of the Austin Film Festival! It will be screening Friday, October 19th at 3:30pm, and Thursday October 25th at 4:00pm- at the Hideout Theatre.
-- Roach was selected to screen at the Jim Henson Foundation's Puppets on Film series at BAMcinematék in Brooklyn. Details forthcoming.
Please let me know if you can make it to any of these screenings, and I will try to get you a ticket!
