Update #15

Would You Sponsor One Of Our NY Screenings?

Comment

Dear Granito backers, granitos, the time has finally come for our Oscar qualification theatrical run in NY!  We open a 9-day run tomorrow Wednesday Sept 14 at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village with 6 screenings a day, and it's crucial that we fill those seats.  You could help us do that by sponsoring a screening.  What does that mean?  The IFC has a group ticket sales policy for blocks of 10 tickets or more on off-peak screenings, where the normal $13 ticket price is discounted to $10.  So your sponsorship would entail putting together a group of 10 friends and family to go see Granito and help us fill those seats. Click here to share our dramatic theatrical trailer with them and they'll surely want to go! 

In exchange for your generous sponsorship we offer you eternal gratitude and a big shout out on Facebook and at the IFC Center (please let us know if you decide to sponsor).  If you're interested, see below for the IFC group sales policy and contact info:
