Distribution and beyond...

This production blog has gone kind of quiet since we made the transition into distribution. Most of the action is happening on our Facebook and Twitter accounts these days - plus regular updates to the screenings page of the official Now, Forager website. Those are the best sources to follow the latest news.

Since the film's World Premier in Rotterdam, we had a fantastic North American premiere at New Directors/New Films back in March with well-attended screenings at both MoMA and Lincoln Center in New York.

Our worldwide sales agent New Europe Film Sales has sold the film for distribution in several territories, with releases happening this fall and winter. We'll announce these very soon.

In the US, we've partnered with Argot Pictures for a limited theatrical distribution run starting at IFC Center in New York from October 3-9. After that, we have both  Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center and Los Angeles' Downtown Independent from October 12-18. We're confirming dates in several other cities nationwide. And we'll have filmmakers present for Q&A at openings whenever possible. It's a win-win situation - support your local independent art house theater by seeing the mushroom movie on the big screen.

We have upcoming dates with several other festivals in the US and Europe, including a competition slot at New Orleans Film Festival. We also have a homecoming of sorts with Poland's American Film Festival in November, where we won a special jury prize last year as a work in progress at US-In-Progress.

All good stuff to report. I hope you'll pop over to Facebook and give us Like and that we'll see y'all on the road this fall and winter.

Cheers from Team Fungi!
