Following nearly a year and a half of screenings at festivals around the United States and abroad we are heading back to theaters for a few special screenings this May and July. These screenings will bring the film together with a couple of the musicians who brought so much heart to our film, Ben Connelly and Mike Kilczewski. We've been dreaming about these shows since the film debuted and are so excited to have the chance to be part of these events!

A heartfelt thanks to all of the festivals that allowed us to share our film and the loving audiences that supported My Movie Girl during our fifteen month festival run.

The Edmonds International Film Festival put on quite a show at the historic Edmonds Theater in its inaugural year. Many thanks to Trevor and Fred Greenfield for their tremendous support of our film along the way and a big thanks to the people of Edmonds for filling the theater and giving us such a memorable final screening. We could not have scripted a happier ending for our festival run!


October 17th, 2010

Heading up the coast for our first time in Washington state to screen at the beloved 1927 Edmonds Theater as part of the Edmonds International Film Festival, just outside of Seattle. We've heard great things about the movie lovers of Edmonds, and can't wait to join them in the seats of this classic single screen movie house.

My Movie Girl references many classic films, but we've never had the opportunity to reference "Star Trek" until now. No, the Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival & Series does not have a transporter device, but they were able to teleport us all the way from California to Illinois for one of our most unique and memorable Q&A sessions via Skype. Thanks to all the cinephiles behind Blue Whiskey for "beaming" us over to your theater for the Q&A. It was a great night and we seem to have "re-materialized" just fine. 

September also gave us the chance to screen in Oklahoma again, and we'd like to send a great big thanks to everyone at the Southern Winds Film Festival for awarding us "Best Feature Narrative" at the 2010 festival. We only wish technology could have made it possible for us to have joined you as well. 


August 29th, 2010

The festival train keeps chugging along, and this September My Movie Girl returns to two of the friendliest states on the festival circuit for more screenings. First up, we'll be back in Oklahoma for the Southern Winds Film Festival, and then a little later in the month we'll return to Illinois for a special screening at the Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival and Series. We're overjoyed that our little film keeps making the rounds, and very grateful that our festival run is still going!

The good people at the Prescott Film Festival have been fans of My Movie Girl for many, many months now and it was a delight to finally meet everyone in person. Arizona was toasty, but we can honestly say that the weather wasn't the warmest thing about Prescott. All the affection from everyone at the festival nearly made us melt, and we couldn't have felt more at home. Your town is a little treasure, and we were so honored to be part of your inaugural event at the gorgeous 1905 Elks Opera House. Thanks to our very animated audience for reminding us that our film really can be laugh out loud funny!


July 23rd, 2010

My Movie Girl has now been screening for over a year all across the country and abroad! It's been a couple of months since our last festival appearance, but things are starting to heat up again for My Movie Girl. When it comes to hot, it doesn't get much hotter than Arizona in the summertime, and this August we'll be heading to Prescott for the inaugural Prescott Film Festival. The City of Prescott was the birthplace of many great silent Westerns, and has a rich tradition of celebrating all of the arts. We'll be presenting My Movie Girl at the Elks Opera House, which opened in 1905 and was recently refurbished by the city. Every effort was made to restore the theater to its former glory, and we are so honored to be screening in a theater with so much history for our Arizona Premiere. 


April 12th, 2010

My Movie Girl was honored to help kick off the film screenings for the SENE Film, Music and Arts Festival at the Cable Car Cinema in Providence, RI. It was a real treat to bring the film back to the city that first inspired My Movie Girl so long ago. The theater was packed with some of the most thoughtful and passionate film enthusiasts we've ever encountered, and this was one of our warmest receptions to date. Our fantastic Q & A felt like it could have gone on and on for hours with this crowd. Big thanks to our audience for the amazing questions and loving comments. We couldn't have asked for better feedback than hearing someone say they usually hate romantic comedies but loved My Movie Girl. It was a true highlight for us on a weekend that was full of delightful surprises. The biggest and most delightful of the delightful surprises? Winning the award for Best Feature Film!


April 5th, 2010

Cannes is home to perhaps the most famous film festival in the world, and this May we'll be heading just a few lefts and a couple of rights down the road from the Festival de Cannes for the 3rd annual Cannes Independent Film Festival. Time to pull out a detailed street map and make our way over to France!


March 15th, 2010

There are many real life stories that inspired My Movie Girl, and the first of these stories involved a failed first kiss over a dozen years ago in Providence, RI. Now a failed first kiss may not make for the most pleasant memory, but it was great material for a short student film at RISD, and ultimately prompted the creation of My Movie Girl years later. This April, we'll be heading back to the city of failed first kisses for SENE, a festival that's as artistically vibrant and diverse as the city of Providence itself. SENE promises to be quite the celebration of the arts, and films will be screening at the Cable Car Cinema, a theater that's been dedicated to bringing Providence the best independent gems from around the world for nearly 35 years, and a sentimental favorite of My Movie Girl's Adam Bronstein.


March 9th, 2010

Thanks to the amazing staff and volunteers at the 7th annual Lake County Film Festival for their tremendous support of My Movie Girl, and for so heartily embracing the spirit of the independent film scene. There's great passion for making movies in Lake County and it was contagious. Always fun to leave a festival with the itch to make more work!


March 3rd, 2010

My Movie Girl arrived during a blizzard for the last leg of SF INDIEFEST at Sugar Bowl Mountain. Hard to believe that anybody would venture out during a "white out" storm to see a movie, but they did. We really appreciate the support of the locals that braved the weather, and hope you all made it home safe!


February 20th, 2010

Thanks to everyone at SF INDIEFEST for the continued love and support. We've been asked to participate in a special screening at Sugar Bowl Mountain featuring a few of the best films from their 2010 festival.


February 14th, 2010

Dorothy had it right. There really is no place like home. It was a tremendous homecoming for the cast and crew of My Movie Girl at SF INDIEFEST. We were blown away by the line around the block on 16th street just before the show. People came from near and far to join us at the Roxie, and the theater was just a few seats shy of a sold out crowd for our San Francisco premiere. We could not have asked for a more loving or enthusiastic crowd that night, and this was far and away the highlight of our festival run thus far. People laughed. People cried. People cheered. Thanks to all the movie lovers, friends, and family that made our return home so special and so memorable. The night was truly like something from out of a movie.


February 9th, 2010

Next up for My Movie Girl will be back to back screenings in the state of Illinois. We'll first be playing at the 32nd annual Big Muddy Film Festival and then heading six hours north a couple of weeks later for the 7th annual Lake County Film Festival. Thanks for all the love Illinois.

January 28th, 2010

My Movie Girl got a great big hug from the town of Duncan, and our second biggest audience to date at the Trail Dance Film Festival in Oklahoma. This small town has one of the biggest hearts of any town we've been to on the festival trail. People love to hug in Oklahoma, and we could really feel how much the film meant to this crowd. A hearty thanks to the staff and volunteers at Trail Dance for making us feel so at home and for awarding our very personal little tale the Best Screenplay award this year. Congratulations to Adam Bronstein and Joseph Ekers on this big win.


January 4th, 2010

At long last, My Movie Girl is finally heading home to the city where it all started! This February we'll be screening at the 12th Annual SF INDIEFEST in San Francisco's oldest and most treasured movie house, the Roxie. Many cast and crew members plan to attend from all over the Bay Area, and it will be such a treat to see so many spectacular Bay Area talents and locations with a local audience. There really is no place like home, and this should be quite the homecoming indeed.


December 19th, 2009

This January we'll be traveling east on the festival trail, and heading to the wild west for the Trail Dance Film Festival, one of the "25 coolest film festivals" in the world according to MovieMaker magazine. My Movie Girl is a little bit screwball comedy, and a little bit romantic drama. There's also a touch of horror and a splash of Buster Keaton. Screening at Trail Dance makes us wish we had thrown a little western number into the mix somewhere. We've been nominated for 3 big awards: Best Comedy Feature, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. It should be a grand old time!


November 12th, 2009

We had the most wonderful time up north at the Lakedance Film Festival in Sandpoint, Idaho. Our week started off with a couple of terrific articles about the film in two local papers and then continued with the biggest audience we've had to date on the closing night of the festival. We could not have asked for a more supportive or loving audience. Nobody in town knew us prior to the festival and when we left Sandpoint we felt like family. That was part of the magic of this town and this festival. A very heartfelt thanks to everyone at Lakedance!

Also very happy to share that My Movie Girl is now an award winning feature film! We were nominated for 5 awards at Lakedance: Best Feature, Best Comedy, Best Director, Best Soundtrack, and Best Feature Audience Award. We took home 3 big awards: Best Comedy, Best Soundtrack, and Best Feature Audience Award. Congratulations and a big thanks to everyone involved in the making of My Movie Girl. It's wonderful that people seem to really be falling for our film.


November 5th, 2009

For the very first time My Movie Girl will be leaving the country and landing in Bari, Italy at the Levante International Film Festival. We're anxious to find out how the film plays overseas a little later this month.


November 3rd, 2009

Next up in our travels with the film is the Lakedance Film festival in Sandpoint, Idaho at the historic Panida Theater. We will be the closing night film of the festival this year and it will be incredible to finally be screening the film in such a treasured old theater. My Movie Girl lovingly features many of San Francisco's forgotten movie palaces that line Mission Street. It's one of the saddest stretches to walk in San Francisco as most of these movie houses are now parking garages or convenient stores. The Panida Theater is still showing great films and performances more than 80 years after they first opened their doors. We can't wait to see My Movie Girl projected on this antique silver screen.


October 29th, 2009

Just returned from a fantastic screening in New York City. It was wonderful to have so many of the people that were so influential in making My Movie Girl at this screening and it was actually the first time many of them had seen the movie since they had appeared in it years ago. This screening was probably the best the film has looked or sounded since we started screening it in June. The CMJ staff was incredibly supportive of the film and Festival Director, Alex Steyermark, told the audience he believed My Movie Girl is a refreshing and new comedic voice in the current landscape of independent cinema. Thanks CMJ!


October 4th, 2009

Thrilled to announce that My Movie Girl will be playing at the 15th annual CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival in New York City. Our Director of Photography once said he felt like he was shooting a Manhattan based movie in San Francisco. So it looks like we're bringing the San Francisco film with the New York City feel to the big apple. Can't wait.


July 2nd, 2009

We enjoyed two screenings at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival at some very memorable venues. The audiences were loving a bunch, and it was fantastic to finally meet Michael Kilczewski who provided three songs for the film, written and recorded in the late 1980s and performed by his band Dorian Grae. Feels like My Movie Girl is finally on tour and we're anxious to see which city will be next in our travels across the country, and eventually abroad.


June 11th, 2009

My Movie Girl just premiered at the 12th annual Dances with Films festival in Los Angeles. We were honored to debut the film at a festival that has been such a friend to so many tremendous films and continued to embrace the true spirt of the independent film world for so many years. This was our first time seeing the film on a real movie screen and it was a delight to share the experience with so many friends and film lovers. After all these years it's remained a mystery whether audiences would embrace a film that's as sweet and sentimental as My Movie Girl, and our screening at Dances with Films gives us great confidence that there is indeed a place for this little film in the much grittier landscape of the independent film scene. Maybe there's still a little romance left in this world after all.

A special thanks to all of the incredibly talented and devoted cast and crew that made it to the premiere from all over the country. This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a fantastic festival run for our film.


May 25th, 2009

At long last My Movie Girl is finished and ready for her big screen debut. Thanks to the many friends that have supported us along the way. Much more news coming soon.
