Thrilled to announce that the film will be at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque, New Mexico for three nights, the weekend of March 8-10.  The Guild is my favorite kind of theater, run by and for true film lovers. It’s the only real art house left in Albuquerque, and I’m delighted they’re going to show Deconstructing Dad, and equally delighted that I’m going to be able to attend in person for the Friday and Saturday night screenings — we’ll be doing Q&As after the shows, and following the independent filmmaker’s rules of the road I’ll have DVDs for sale.

The Guild is located at 3405 Central Avenue NE Albuquerque, NM in the heart of the historic Nob Hill district, and the phone number is (505) 255-1848.    

So if you’re located anywhere near Albuquerque, hope to see you there!

John Ewing, Associate Director, Film at the Cleveland Museum of Art

The Cleveland Museum of Art possesses one of the oldest museum film programs in the United States. and is a  major year-long presence that attracts thousands of people to the museum. They present at least two different feature films every week (on Wednesday nights, Fridays nights, or Sunday afternoons) and I’m honored that they’ve chosen my film to be one of them.  Many thanks to John Ewing, Associate Director for Film at the museum for seeking the film out by contacting me.

Again, though I’d love to visit Cleveland as haven’t been there in awhile, my current schedule just doesn’t allow for it, but hope you can make it!

6 06 2012

Week of NYC Theater Screenings: July 13th-19th

Further Update–July 17th–

* Q&As with filmmaker STAN WARNOW–The Q&A’s we did over the weekend were such a hit that we’ve added more for the next 3 days:

7/17, 7/18 and 7/19 (Tuesday-Thursday) after 7:30pm show.

Hope to see you there!

 

Update–Breaking News–July 12th–we just got an excellent review in the New York Times: http://movies.nytimes.com/2012/07/13/movies/deconstructing-dad-recalls-raymond-scott-musical-inventor.html.  And for all the latest info go to our Facebook event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/436981592988640/

——————————————————————

I’m delighted to announce that the film is opening on Friday July 13th at the Quad Cinema in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village (34 West 13th Street between 5th & 6th avenues). The film will be screened several times a day, for a week, through July 19th.  The QUAD has been owned by the same family since 1972, and attracts passionate moviegoers eager to see the best in independent, foreign and documentary films.  It books films from major distributors such as as Miramax, Sony Pictures Classics, Fox Searchlight, and many more, and now us (not that we’re a major distributor!).

Quad LogoAs you can see we’re not superstitious — I kind of like the idea that we’re opening on a Friday the 13th, and plan to make it a good luck day for the film!  And given that the Quad is on 13th street it seems particularly apt to me to open the film on a Friday the 13th.  And now that I’ve spun it all together, it will be easy for everyone who reads this post to remember the date and place, won’t it?

We’re getting a lot of good publicity and hope to see you at the Quad–I’m doing Q&A’s along with co-producer Jeff Winner and special guests Friday and Saturday after the 7:30 and 9:50 shows, and Sunday after the 3pm matinee.  Again , hope you can make it  to the Quad for any show during the period from July 13th-19th, it will mean a lot for the future of the film.  Thanks….

Best Documentary, Atlantic City Cinefest!

18 10 2011

Greetings from Atlantic City — OK, not literally as I’m back home, but I was in fact there this past weekend of October 14-16 for the 4th annual Atlantic City Cinefest, presented by the Downbeach Film Festival.  Not your normal type of film festival location, but that made it all the more fun and definitely unique.  The fest is run a by a dedicated group of film lovers headed by William Sokolic and they work very hard to create a festival that feels at once real and fantastical, given the Las Vegas inspired nature of modern Atlantic City (and there’s still a beautiful beach, boardwalk, ocean, and salt water taffy).  But I’m delighted to report that the highlight of the weekend for me was that “Deconstructing Dad” won the Best Documentary award!  A real thrill and thanks to Bill Sokolic, Joelle SokolicNed Eckhardt, and everyone on the festival staff  for the award and a great time in Atlantic City.  And thanks as well to George Stewart  who originally suggested that I submit my film to the festival….

FREE Screening at Unsound Festival — NYC April 10th

4 04 2011

Unsound Festival

In a refreshing change for me, the film is being shown this Sunday close to home, at the very cool Unsound Festival in Manhattan.  This is a cutting-edge electronic music festival now in its second year that has already made a major impact on the NYC cultural scene.

Unsound was established in 2003 in Krakow, Poland, as a festival of advanced music. Starting out as an underground event, in recent years the festival has grown in size and scope.  Unsound currently produces an annual festival in Krakow at the end of October each year and now has expanded with the New York event.

THE NEW YORK TIMES said the NY edition, claims a shrewdly amorphous domain: a zone in a virtual Europe where electronics, arty, multimedia experiments, chamber-music meticulousness, punk impulses and DJ dance beats may all appear amid clouds of noise. This festival’s aesthetic: high-tech, allusive and not to be pinned down.” But one thing that can be pinned down is the time and place of the screening: Sunday April 10th, 3 pm at the Goethe-Institut Wyoming Building, 5 East 3rd Street, just east of the Bowery.  Here’s a Google map link as well.  And this is a FREE screening.  I’m attending — hope to see you there.

Also, the festival, which is produced in tandem with the Polish Cultural Institute, has lots of other appealing events — here’s a link to the main website. Definitely worth checking out…
