We have good news and bad news:
The good news is that we have a date for the first screening of I's! On top of that, that the overhaul/creation of effects is well underway, and we are busting our butts to make it to the AFM with a full cut of the film.
The bad news is that the effects and sound have delayed completion until mid-November. Due to a dearth of appropriate theaters in San Francisco, this leaves us with no open slots for a premiere until February. Yes, February. Apparently, the holiday movies take precedence over theater rentals.
I personally have been incredibly saddened by the delay, and I humbly apologize to everyone for the wait. We tried everything we could to get a date in the next few months. The only upside is that holiday parties and events would have made scheduling a nightmare.
So our date is February 6th, a Thursday that manages to avoid MLK day, President's Day, Ski Week, and Valentine's Day. Please book your calendars.
Finally, we have a bit of news to ease the pain. We were able to book the Kabuki Sundance main theater in San Francisco. This is the best possible theater for a screening. It has been recently remodeled with 500 great seats, side tables for drinks (including alcohol), a balcony, and a gorgeous screen. It also has a posh bar for the VIP party, along with dedicated areas for attendees. Photos are here: https://www.sundancecinemas.com/photos_of_kabuki.html
We look forward to welcoming you all. To those who cannot make it, we hope to be on the festival circuit shortly and we will be working to get DVDs your way, so we look forward to meeting you and hearing your opinions.
We appreciate everyone's patience and support, and are doing everything we can to make the premiere a spectacular event. More details to come.
