It is with great joy that we're writing to you today. We're a little delirious from the whirlwind week, but we couldn't wait another second to tell you the news.
The 78 Project Movie will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March!!
That's right! The movie is finished (well, it will be by the time we head to Texas) and the people we most want to share this enormous moment with are you all. Since that amazing day a year and a half ago when you believed in us enough to pledge your hard-earned dollars to help make this movie happen, we've been looking forward to the day when we would have a finished movie to show you. That day is almost here, and we're thrilled to share it with you.
What does this mean?
So many things!
First, we can't imagine a better way to debut the movie than at SXSW. It's an innovative festival with excellent musical traditions, and The 78 Project Movie will find a receptive audience there. It's an honor to be invited. We're thrilled.
Secondly, the world premiere of the movie opens up the doors for more screenings, and more opportunities for us to fulfill those rewards at all levels that are due a ticket to see the movie. Speaking of which: if you are a backer due a ticket, and you are planning to be at SXSW, please write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may have a festival screening ticket for you!
After the festival, we'll also have more news for you on the different ways you'll be able to see the movie. We haven't made any final decisions on distribution yet, but when we do, you'll be the first to know, because you'll need to be distributed your tickets and copies of the film!
Finally, and most importantly, we wouldn't be here, preparing our film to be screened for the very first time, if not for your help. This achievement is yours, too! Thank you and thank you again.
