The Quiet Girl's Guide to Violence World Premiere Announcement!
The Quiet Girl's Guide to Violence will make its world premiere at Fantastic Fest!!
We are so thrilled to announce that we have been officially invited to premiere at the biggest genre festival in the U.S. FANTASTIC FEST!
We got our t-shirts and the news on the same day! My house is now full of all these awesome kickstarter rewards and I'm planning on tackling the mailout this weekend. Here's a photo of me taken outside of the Alamo Drafthouse (home of Fantastic Fest) wearing the shirt, where by coincidence I was watching a movie when I got the news we had been accepted. This is my deliriously happy face.
This is all thanks to the support we got from everyone that worked on the film, and from you, our wonderful backers. Thanks for taking this journey with us. This is only the beginning! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for our OFFICIAL TRAILER that is dropping in the next 24 hours!
Onward and Upward,
Here's a little more about Fantastic Fest. Warning: You will want to quit your job and go after reading it.)
Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world. In years past we have presented the world premieres of THERE WILL BE BLOOD, APOCALYPTO, CITY OF EMBER, ZOMBIELAND, and GENTLEMEN BRONCOS, while our guest roster has included such talent as Mel Gibson, Bill Murray, Dolph Lundgren, Jemaine Clement, Paul Rudd, Bill Pullman, Paul Thomas Anderson, Kevin Smith, Jon Favreau, George Romero, Darren Aronofsky and Mike Judge. We also feature world, national and regional premieres of new, up-and-coming genre films.
Fantastic Fest is held each year in various venues, but primarily at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on South Lamar in Austin, Texas. The Alamo Drafthouse was named the best cinema in America by Entertainment Weekly and features food and drink served to your seat without any disruption of the movie experience.
During his Keynote Address at the International film Festival Summit in Las Vegas, Variety president and publisher Charlie Koones listed Fantastic Fest in a list of “10 Film Festivals We Love,” a list which included industry heavy-hitters such as Cannes, Toronto and Telluride. We’ve also been named as one of the “25 coolest film festivals” and the “25 film festivals worth the entry fee” by Moviemaker Magazine
"The geek Telluride… Fantastic Fest lives up to its name" – Variety
"The most important film festival in North America" – Texas Monthly
"If there’s a heaven, I want it to be just like the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar during the week of Fantastic Fest." – Devin Faraci, CHUD.com
