We’ve been really bad about keeping this section updated, but there’s been a bunch of stuff happening. We had a great tour of Southern festivals, including New Orleans, Hot Springs and Sidewalk. And our BAM engagement was awesome. Such a great theater, and kind of a homecoming party for us.
And now, our theatrical release is starting up in Toronto! We’re opening January 13th at the Carlton Cinema for an indefinite run. Vagrant Films Releasing is organizing a show of Disfarmer photographs in the lobby, which should be a killer compliment to the movie.
We’re excited to screen at the Newport Beach Film Festival, and thrilled that the OC Weekly just listed PUPPET as the #5 Programmers’ Pick of the festival. We’re screening on Sunday, May 1st at 3pm. If you’re in the LA-area, we hope to see you there.
Tickets for the festival are available here.
Puppet is now available for educational use! If you’d like to teach Puppet, your institution can buy a copy from Cinema Guild here.
We’re thrilled to be screening along with a slate of fantastic films at IFFBoston. If you’ll be in town we hope to see you there. Puppet is screening at 5:30pm on Saturday, April 30th at the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square. Check out the full lineup here.
We have plenty of announcements coming soon about PUPPET, including release details, screenings around the world, opportunities to host your own screenings, and more. In the meantime, we would like to turn thepuppetfilm.com in to a home for all kinds of information about modern puppetry. There will be extensive galleries of puppet art, announcements about new shows, and blogging about the scene.
What would you want to see here? What’s missing in the online community of modern puppetry? Let us know in the comments! We’re all ears.
