Official Selection - Peoria Film Festival

This week has been a great week for our film "Honey, I'm Home" After being notified by the Miami Underground Film Festival and the Cookies in the Mill Film and Video Festival of their acceptances earlier this week, we have just received word from the Peoria Film Festival that "Honey, I'm Home" is an Official Selection to their 2008 Festival.

Each Official Selection is very exciting news for us, as we have raised the bar to the near impossible goal of having "Honey, I'm Home" screen in all 50 states and 10 countries outside of the U.S. Each festival that accepts our film gives us hope that maybe our goal isn't impossible.

We want to make special mention and thank Festival Director Helen McCready for all the work she puts into the festival. The limited contact we have had with her has been great. For filmmakers it is great when you have access to a festival director and Helen is approachable and welcoming.

"Honey, I'm Home" will screen at the 2008 Peoria Film Festival held March 6th through March 9th. The venue is the Harkins Theatre - Arrowhead 18 located at 16046 North Arrowhead Fountain, Peoria Arizona.

That's right, Peoria, ARIZONA.

Official Selection - Miami Underground Film Festival ’08

We have just received word that "Honey, I'm Home" has been accepted into the Miami Underground Film Festival '08!!! We want to thank Festival Director Rafael Diaz Wagner for being the wonderful supporter of independent film that he is.

The way the official selection came about is an amazing story. One that we would release if we were charging a premium service fee to read. For now, our fans in Miami can take note that "Honey, I'm Home" is coming to your city as one of the first films accepted into the Miami Underground Film Festival. Hope you are as thrilled and excited as we are. The festival is not until March, so we will have more details as the fest comes closer. Don't be surprised to see us mention this one many times before then.

"Honey, I’m Home" Tralier Added to Indie Film Trailers

Really love the site, Indie Film Trailers. It's a site I wish I would have created on my own. I also wish there were more sites that were a nesting place for independent film trailers. Occasionally I will scan the web attempting to locate other such sites, but I have not had much success. If you know of other sites that welcome independent filmmakers to post their movie trailers, please enlighten us.

With that, here is the link to our "Honey, I'm Home" Movie Trailer now on Indie Film Trailers.
