Eighth Street is Heading to the Big Screen

Hello Kickstarter contributors,

I am very happy to announce the premier of Eighth Street and would like to invite you to join me and the crew at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland, June 22 at 3:00 pm. It will be the first screening of the film and will be followed by a Q&A by myself and by the artist himself, Dave Young Kim. Kickstarter rewards will be given at the theater. The New Parkway is a reborn Oakland icon that serves food and drinks, so come ready for an enjoyable afternoon.

I'm grateful to the diligent and kind folks at Project Peace East Bay for sponsoring our premier. With their generous contributions, we'll be able to sell tickets at half price (only $3).

Thank you for making the production of this meaningful film possible. It has been a humbling experience to be on the receiving end of such generosity from my community. I am excited to see the project moving towards completion and can't wait to share the finished product with each of you.

      It might be a good idea to stream this screening for the folks(such as myself), that cant make the screening, but pledged to watch the film online. you could not only screen your film but also fulfill some of the perks at the same time, two birds, one stone :)
      either way, congrats on the screening, cant wait to see the film online :)
