Lots of good news!
Hello to all our Kickstarter Backers,
We have lots of good news for you in this update! The biggest news is Magnolia Pictures acquired the North American rights to Good Ol' Freda and they plan to release the film later this year. In his announcement, Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles said "Freda Kelly is a truly remarkable woman and 'Good Ol' Freda' is a treasure trove and delight for fans of The Beatles, from casual to die-hard. Ryan White has done us all a great service in telling her story."
We will keep you posted about the details of the exact release schedule once we know it. And don't worry: Our Kickstarter backers will still be the first people to receive the DVD when it's released. We will not forget you!!!
Good Ol' Freda had its world premiere at South x Southwest on March 9 and received standing ovations from audiences after our screenings there. It has screened to standing-room only audiences at film festivals in Atlanta, Dallas, Durham NC, Cleveland, and Nashville including a sold-out crowd of 1,000 in Durham. One of our biggest thrills was receiving the Roxanne T. Mueller Audience Choice Award for Best Film at the Cleveland International Film Festival out of 350+ films!
We're headed to Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Vancouver, Nantucket, Maryland, and Tel Aviv over the next several weeks and hope to see you along the way. Be sure to check www.goodolfreda.com and the Good Ol’ Freda Facebook page for updates, and please join our newsletter!
All the best,
