Another great festival update.  Day Labor will be screening at the DC Labor Film Festival in our nation’s capitol on the weekend of October 9-12.  The 8th annual DC Labor festival highlights films dealing with workers and the workplace…what a great fit!

DC Labor Film Festival
October 9-12 (specifics TBA)

More festival notifications are due in the next two weeks, so hopefully we’ll have some more good news.

Oh, and I sent off the obligatory entries to Sundance and Slamdance.  It’s like buying a lottery ticket…

Thanks to the hard work and skills of editor Ron Milestone, the “final cut” of Day Labor was completed in time to submit for the Atlanta Film Festival.   With a great assist from Melo, Tek, and YamNa of Roqmon Music, who huddled together for a late Sunday night production session, and put together some killer tracks to replace the temporary music.

Now the money starts to fly out the door as the festival submission lottery begins.  In addition to Atlanta, entries have gone out to:

  • Cannes (we can dream)
  • CineVegas
  • Houston
  • Seattle True Independant (STIFF)
  • Rhode Island
  • Athens (Ohio)

Also in the works: cast and crew premiere party at Manuel’s.  I’m looking at early February — as soon as I get the DVDs back from the duplicator.
