Dear XING Backers,

We had a stellar run of film festivals last year, with the last festival screening six months ago in January. We have not applied to any more festivals, because the XING short film served it's purpose last year and attracted a first seed money investor to help us create the feature film. Our team is now creating a Producer's Package to finish the last stage of Development - Talent Attachments. Can't wait to share more news with you!

Here are the festival stats for the XING short film that YOU ALL helped bring to life:
