Announcing Good Ol' Freda's World Premiere!

Posted by Tripod Media (Creator)

To Our Amazing Backers:

We are very proud to announce that Good Ol' Freda has been selected as a headliner film at the prestigious South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, TX! The world premiere is scheduled for March 9th and Freda will be coming from Liverpool to be there in person. Needless to say, Freda was very surprised to see her name alongside Jim Carrey’s and Steve Carell’s in yesterday’s early announcement here!

We wish that each and every one of you could be there with us, as your support has gotten us this far. As we face this final stretch to the finish line, we’re now facing over $75,000 in post-production costs such as licensing never-before-seen photos and footage of The Beatles, some very special music(!), and a myriad of technical needs such as sound and color correction that must be done to finish the film. Contributions of all amounts help us chip away at these costs and help ensure we can have a finished film ready for its world premiere. If you’re interested in making a fully tax-deductible donation to Good Ol' Freda via The Southern Documentary Fund, go here:

Be sure to check out our website and Facebook page for frequent updates over the coming months, and join our newsletter. The DVDs should be available around summer 2013 and we will ship them to you when they are in hand! Here's a link to an article that appeared today in The Beatles Examiner giving more details about the film. 

Many thanks to all of you for your support and donations, to all our friends and family for putting up with our crazy work schedules for the past 18 months, to The Beatles for the joy and the music......but most of all to Freda Kelly for being there for all Beatles fans and for trusting us to tell her story.

With gratitude,

Kathy McCabe and Ryan White
Good Ol' Freda
