OUR FILM SCANNER IS STILL ALMOST ON THE WAY!

Who knew how financially complicated it would be to purchase a film scanner for a non-profit? We sure didn't! But after another month of paperwork, everything is finally in place. We're hoping to have the scanner installed sometime in April, with training taking place immediately after. Our excitement has reached a triple fever pitch.

Two weeks ago, we were in San Francisco for the AGFA CINEMAPOCALYPSE marathon at the Alamo Drafthouse New Mission. It was easily the most fun ever had in the most beautiful theater on the planet.

On the same trip, we took a detour to Los Angeles and visited the Margaret Herrick Library at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills. Our purpose: find as much information as possible about the movies that we'll be releasing with Something Weird. It was a fruitful visit. For instance, we found out that SATAN'S CHILDREN didn't inspire a murder.

In other news, the campaign rewards are designed and officially in production. Again, we can't thank you enough for your patience during this process. We have exactly four human hands here at AGFA, and all of them owe you a hi-five and a hug. We're almost there. All because of you.
