Catching up with Now, Forager

It's been a busy few weeks. We've made submissions to a handful of premiere film festivals, had solicitations for screeners from some big-name sales and distribution companies, been continuing to generate interest in the press, and have recently received a couple of very nice honors.

Now, Forager was one of seven features selected for the "Gotham in Progress" European sales market that will be held in Poland next month: http://blogs.indiewire.com/sydneylevine/archives/american_film_festivals_films_in_progress/

I've also been named a finalist for San Francisco Film Society's Hearst Screenwriting Grant: http://sffs.org/Filmmaker-Services/Grants/sffshearst-screenwriting-grant.aspx

And also, we're still raising money to complete post-production. We just posted a snazzy new video today--we think you'll like it: http://www.unitedstatesartists.org/project/now_forager

Thanks again for all your support--past and present. Team Fungi will prevail!
