The day we’ve been looking forward to for eight years arrives tomorrow: a screening of The Lavender Scare at the iconic Castro Theater in San Francisco!
So much time has passed since our Kickstarter campaign that you may have forgotten about your generous contribution to the film. But we haven’t. And we remain enormously grateful for your willingness to help make this idea a reality.
So far, we have had almost two dozen terrific screenings. In alphabetical order: Amsterdam, Atlantic City, Ashford WA, Bethel CT, Charlotte NC, Fort Myers FL, Houston, Hartford CT, Huntington Beach CA, Miami, New Haven, Newport Beach CA, Ocean Grove NJ, Philadelphia, Portland OR, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Sun Valley ID and Toronto.
We’re proud to say The Lavender Scare was named Best Documentary at OutFilm Connecticut and qFest New Jersey, and was runner-up for the audience award for best doc at the OutShine festival in Miami. The film picked up nominations for best doc at the New Renaissance festival in Amsterdam and the Utah Film Awards in Salt Lake City.
In the fall, we will have news about a theatrical premiere in major cities (New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, stay tuned!) as well as a DVD release and streaming availability.
None of this would have been possible without your confidence in the project and your support. And most importantly, your patience! This took far longer than we had hoped, but we think you'll find the finished product was worth the wait.
Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.
The Lavender Scare Production Team
