A Note from the Director

Having just finished our first two film festivals, I’m most impressed by the response from the audiences. They laugh when they should, and stick around after the film ends and have amazingly thoughtful questions. There’s never a dull moment and many hands are in the air simultaneously at our Q&As. We even had a visit from Mark Guydish, a reporter for the Times-Leader in Wilkes-Barre, PA, who drove from Pennsylvania to Portsmouth to see the finished film. Mark appears as one of the “nay-sayers” in the film, and wrote a wonderful follow up article that can be read here. Thanks to Mark and all the people who came out to support and celebrate the film’s debut. Now, on to the next festivals.

Film Screens Opening Day at the NH Film Festival

We were privileged to screen The Jesus Guy opening day at the NH Film Festival. It's always been a dream to screen at The Music Hall here in Portsmouth. It was great to finally showcase the film for friends, family and colleagues. The attendance and Q&A were great. And the 2nd screening at the Muddy River Smokehouse was packed as well. Thanks to everyone that came out to support the film. Looking forward to your thoughts.

World Premiere at Sidewalk

The Jesus Guy had its World Premiere at the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival on September 30, 2007 at 1:45pm at the Carver Theatre in Birmingham, Alabama. The screening was well attended, filling the theatre! And with "What's Your Name?" in attendance, it only drew more buzz. The Q&A and panel following the screening was great. Thank you, "What's Your Name?" for attending! Prior to the audience screening, "What's Your Name?" had his own private screening of the film as he had yet to see it. Overall the premiere was a huge success, complete with a TV segment on Fox 6 Evening News, an interview with the Starz network and "Wake Up Alabama" CBS host Alexa Jones as well as various morning radio show interviews. We enjoyed meeting other talented filmmakers and the amazing Sidewalk staff! Thank you for a great time and fabulous hospitality!
If you got to see the film, do share your thoughts with us!
