Palm Springs

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

The Palm Springs International Shortfest has been a really fun experience so far. Associate Producer Jerylyn Brei and I arrivevd into Palm Springs at around 2AM Friday morning. We drove all the way from Portland, OR to the desert. There are so many great films screening at this festival. It is unbelievable. I am so honored to be apart of this.

Here’s a few that are super good: Mutt, Lost and Found, The MisInventions of Milo Weatherby, The Cello, The Mouse That Soared and the list goes on.

Thanks to Connie Wohn, we’re staying at the beautiful Ace Hotel.

Lick was first to screen during the Films for Families program and it was received very well. The 10:30AM screening was early, but there was a good attendance which I’m thankful for. On Sunday night at 6:00PM,  the Closing Night Awards Gala is announcing the winners at the Camelot Theatres. See you around.

World Premiere

Monday, June 8th, 2009

I’m proud to announce that Lick got accepted and will have its world premiere in Palm Springs, CA at the 2009 Palm Springs International Shortfest and Film Market. So happy! :)

The dates for the festival are June 23rd – 29th.

Lick will be screening Saturday, June 27 at 10:30AM in Camelot Theatres
as part of the FILMS FOR FAMILIES program.

Toyland screened in 2008 and went up to win an Oscar at the 2008 Academy Awards so I am super stoked to have this film take part in a festival that is competitive and is all about showcasing the best of the best.

The complete schedule won’t be up until Sunday, the 14th. I’m booking the flight this week. I don’t want to miss out. I’ll be down there to see the film on the big screen so follow me @licktheshort or @chadachi to see what I’m up to.

Thanks everyone for the hard work to make this film happen! :)
