“SORRY, THANKS” in San Francisco and Spain this weekend!

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

This Saturday (Oct. 24th), ‘SORRY, THANKS” will play for the first time in San Francisco proper, at the great Landmark Clay Theater! We’re thrilled of course, to be bringing the movie back to its hometown, and to be doing it as part of the incredible new CINEMA BY THE BAY festival (first year!), presented by the San Francisco Film Society and highlighting new & emerging film work produced in or about the Bay Area. CBTB has some truly great stuff in their line-up, and the fest only runs for 4 days (Thursday thru Sunday), so head to the SFFS website for tickets quick-like, if you can. The great (& steadfastly charming) Wiley Wiggins will be in SF and for the screening/Q&A to follow, along with the very talented Ia Hernandez (Oakland-local!), who plays his girlfriend “Sara” in the movie. “S,T” in SF details:


“SORRY, THANKS” tickets are on sale HERE. And you can read more about the full CINEMA BY THE BAY line-up HERE.

And on Sunday, 6000 miles or so to the right: “SORRY, THANKS” will have its international premiere in Granada, Spain, at the FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE JÓVENES REALIZADORES DE GRANADA (International Young Filmmakers Festival of Granada). Of course, we can’t wait! We’ll both be at the festival, along with actress Kenya Miles, who’s rushing over from birthday travels in London for the screening (happy birthday, Kenya!). Details:

SUNDAY (Domingo, we’re no dummies), OCT 25th (25 de Octubre!), @ 8:30 PM / TEATRO ISABEL LA CATHÓLICA

Live in Spain, perchance? Info on how to buy tickets HERE.

If you’re in northern CA or southern Spain, we hope to see you there!  Bonus points for people who magically manage both.

GRACIAS por todo!

BAY AREA premiere!

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

We’ve been running around Marin County like crazy.  Well, Lauren has — I’ve been traveling for my day job and will have touched the ground in Georgia, Alabama, Texas and Colorado in the 48 hours before landing in California.  She’s been postering, postcarding, stickering and generally hobnobbing for a good cause. Why so much craziness? And what’s the cause? We’re gearing up for our Bay Area premiere! It’s terribly exciting to play the film to a new audience, as well as the cast, crew, extras, helpers, bar owners, restaurateurs (burrito providers, mostly) and homeless people who made the whole thing possible.   Yes, we are bringing it home, so to speak, and we can’t wait.  Check it out, SORRY, THANKS to play at the lovely MILL VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL.

Two shows, this week: Sunday (Oct. 11th) at 9:00, and Monday (Oct 12th) at 9:30. Tickets HERE!

Maybe we’ll see you there?  Come say hi.

It doesnt get more pro than this! The slate from day #1 on set, at the Chronicle Books offices. We later amended to a An Hollywood production, to class it up a bit.
