I just got the call. Ordinary Angels will be screening at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival (STIFF) this year. This is a big relief for me, as aside from the cast and crew screening and a poorly attended comic shop event, the film hasn't screened in the city in which it was made. It previewed in Portland and Indianapolis, premiered in Atlanta, and has run in Bay City and Colorado Springs. But the first rejection by the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) before the cut was finished seemed to be a bullet through the heart of hometown pride that just wouldn't dislodge.
Well, now it's been dislodged, and I will be there with an army of supporters to proudly screen OA alongside Dan Humphrey's Rectify.
Thanks, STIFF. You've made my week.
UPDATE: Not only are Dan Humphrey and I presenting a double-threat with OA and Rectify, but his other film, The Addict, is also screening. So that's a triple feature of actor Eric Riedmann! I say we make this Riedfest '08!
