Newest version of Devil’s Tail poster by Craig Allen
While BLIFF is not yet over for the year – one more weekend to go; ends this weekend December 13th! – our part in it is over, as we screened on Sunday. And it took us this long to recover…
Cast member Arthur Pellman drove to Boston from NYC and joined us for the exhibition of the film and the Q&A!
Festival Director, Actor and Film Director
Just a couple actors reuniting under their movie poster
Big thanks to Festival Director/Founder José Barriga and Programming Director Erin Scheffler for their support of the film and for being truly gracious and generous hosts.
Best looking Festival Director and Programmer on the Festival Circuit
Thank you also to the rest of the festival staff and volunteers who worked so hard on our behalf: especially Hospitality Coordinators Yvonne Ng and Wanda Droz, and Cynthia Barnes, BLIFF’s unofficial Queen of Twitter. Thanks to her efforts, she got word of the screening out to literally thousands of people in the Boston area.
Damn cool Pellman in front of poster
Special thanks also go to Darren Garnick of the New England Film Junkie of the Boston Herald, who wrote a great intro to the column he asked us to write as guests; Marc Jacques of the Canadian Consulate in Boston, who promoted the film with a press release and stills that went out to thousands of members on their membership list; and Evonne Wetzner, proprietor of The Video Underground, clearly the coolest indie video store (& small summer screening venue!) in Boston, who let us come in and be-flyer and be-button her store.
And did we mention Festival sponsors José’s restaurant? Great warm casual atmosphere in Cambridge, and some of the friendliest proprietors and staff you could meet… we were flattered they placed our flyers and buttons top spot where their menus normally go…
Audience for our screening was quite full; enthusiastic and asked intelligent questions. Sign of a good festival. Our only regret is that we’re not still there and screening there again this weekend.
