Japan to New York and Back

The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival is over and and I am back in Japan getting ready for our next festival which will be the Rockport Film Festival in Texas and then back home in Japan at the Yubari Fantastic Film Festival.

The NYIIFVF was a great first experience for a first time film maker. I would of liked to known more about the festival before attending, but nevertheless still an experience to remember. "Same Old Story" got a really good attendance and even better reaction. Half the audience had tears in their eyes during the film. I am glad it was able to touch peoples hearts for just being an international documentary. I hope to get that kinda of reaction back home in Japan as well. (After all, it's a Japanese film)

I really want to keep those interested up-to-date on the film's festival dates just in case it might be playing in your area, but I am a bad blogger. I am getting better though. OK, enough said. Keep checking back for updates and if I haven't updated in a while WiFi kick me in the leg or something.

Same Old Story Movie Poster

Our movie poster for Same Old Story is finally complete. This film will be showing at Village East Cinema in New York at the film festival.

Showtime is September 21st, 2008 at 12pm. If you come to view the film you are automatically invited to the after party at STILL in New York City. The party goes from 10pm till 2am. There is a dress code (for those interested) and it is casual to formal. No T-shirts, baseball caps, sneakers, etc.

My offer for opening night tickets (September 18th, 6pm til Midnight) still stand, but I only have 4o left. Be sure to email me to reserve yours. I didn't think they would go so fast. The opening party is at Mansion. Check out location from the link.

Anyway, if you are in New York or a New Yorker and want to see some great Indie Films, stop on by, but don't forget to say hi.
