Update #46

MyM Opens this Friday in New York City!


MyM Community,

We are thrilled to report that our "little project that could" will open theatrically in New York City this Friday, August 3rd at Cinema Village.

Just a year ago you all blessed us with the opportunity to make it into production and our MyM team of artists took your hope and belief and turned it into reality! But again, this film can't be the success it hopes to be without your continued support. At this point we need your help spreading the word to your networks, especially in New York.  If we demonstrate, through numbers, that a film like Mosquita y Mari has an audience then it's a victory for many other filmmakers with important stories to tell.

We have attached a postcard with all information, including times I will be in attendance for q&a, that will make it easy for you to spread the word.

Join us on this next chapter of our journey!

Update #45

Los Angeles Premiere!


Hey MyM Community,

If you're in the LA area we invite you to attend one of two screenings planned for the Los Angeles area. On July 19th, Mosquita y Mari will be playing at Outfest Film Festival as one of their centerpiece galas! Buy a ticket and you'll also get to attend a reception with cast and crew. We hear tickets are going fast so we urge you to buy now. If it goes to RUSH that just means you'll have to go to the theater (DIrector's Guild of America) an hour beforehand to purchase a ticket. It's a big theater so you should be able to get in.

Please pass on the word.

Any questions, let us know!

In solidarity!
