Update #15

Current Project Status

Comment

Hello all:

I just wanted to give you an update on the status of the film. Homefront Heroines debuted at the Sarasota Film Festival in August, and the film will be screening at the San Pedro International Film Festival this Sunday, October 6th at 1pm. We've entered a couple of other festivals as well, and will update here as we find out additional screenings.

We're in the process of setting up our private screening channel and will post a backer-only update once that is completed. It will include information as to how you can access your online copy of the film. We've had a delay because we were getting licensing for one of the songs included in the final edit, and that has finally been completed.

And we'll be offering DVDs for sale in the near future, if you have any friends who are interested in getting a copy of the film.

As always, thanks for your support!

Best,
Kathleen M. Ryan, Director

After much work, the website has been finally updated!  Please check it out at www.homefrontheroines.com

Backers at the $25 level or above, you'll notice that you have a page and/or exhibit that has your name on it. We haven't done our "thank you" page yet - that is in the works - but all backers at the $10 or above level are listed on our "Backer Wall." 

Again, thank you all for your help!
