From the Sky debuted on April 30th of last year at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Now nine months into our film festival circuit run (which typically lasts 18 months for a successful short film) we've shifted our strategy to fewer submissions and at festivals around the Pacific Northwest. Reason being, these are closer to my home base in Seattle, so it's quicker and more affordable to attend. During this transition towards fewer regional festivals, I'm focused on driving traffic to the film's online streaming presence while working on my feature film House in Ruins and looking for employment in the film world.
February is a surprisingly busy month for the film, screening at three different festivals. If you'd like to see the film in a proper venue and say hello, consider attending and/or sharing the news with any connections you have in the area.
From the Sky returns to Washington State after SIFF 2014 as an Official Selection of the 17th annual Spokane International Film Festival. The film screens with other short films in the Best of the Northwest showcase on Friday, February 6th at 5:30PM in the historic Bing Crosby Theater. I'm scheduled to attend and participate in the post-screening Q&A. For more, visit: http://spokanefilmfestival.org/
Next, ‘From the Sky’ will have its international premiere at the 21st annual Victoria Film Festival in Canada. The film plays with other shorts to close out the festival on its final day- Sunday, February 15th at 4PM. Hop the border if you're looking for a good reason to get out of Seattle. I'm scheduled for the post-screening Q&A. For more info, visit the official festival site: victoriafilmfestival.com
And on February 28th at 2:15PM, From the Sky screens on the final day of the 15th annual Bellingham Human Rights Film Festival at Western Washington University with a Q&A to follow. For more: http://bhrff.webs.com/2015festivalschedule.htm
Finally, a favor to ask. Will you take a moment to help the film by giving it a star-rating on IMDB? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3137650/?ref_=nm_flmg_prd_1
