On August 5, the Film Society of Lincoln Center will screen The 78 Project Movie as part of the Sound + Vision series.  We hope we'll see you there!

We're thrilled to announce that The 78 Project Movie will have its New York Premiere on August 5 as part of the Film Society of Lincoln Center Sound + Vision series. It's an honor to be showing The 78 Project Movie at the beautiful Walter Reade Theater, and it will be a joy to share this film with our first hometown audience.

To celebrate this momentous hometown screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, we will be on hand at the theater with our Presto and cameras and a special guest musician to demonstrate the exciting process of cutting a 78rpm record live. We'll also share a few stories from our travels across America to shoot The 78 Project Movie.

This will be the second edition of The Film Society of Lincoln Center Sound + Vision series, the annual documentary series that explores a diverse range of music, artists, genres and styles from all over the world, and we're honored to be among such a fantastic lineup of music docs.

If you chose a premiere ticket for your reward, and you'll be in New York, please let us know that you'd like to come to this screening! And if you won't be in town, no need to fret. There will be more opportunities in the future.

Tickets for Sound + Vision will go on sale Thursday, July 10 through www.filmlinc.com

In the coming months we'll have more exciting news about the movie. It will be showing in theaters around the country, and you'll even have the chance to request a screening in your own town!
