Here’s an example of how important it is for independent filmmakers to have a website and trailer for their movies. A while back, we received an email from the artistic director of the YES Film Festival (YESFest) saying she had seen our website and trailer for Saying Goodbye and that the trailer actually brought tears to her eyes. She asked us to send her a screener of the film to consider for inclusion in her festival. Fast forward several months, and we are excited to announce that Saying Goodbye is an official selection in the YESFest!
YESFest is held in Columbus, Indiana, which is “nestled between the cornfields in the heart of the heartland.” We’ve never been to that part of the country before, so we were really hoping we’d get to attend, but unfortunately circumstances did not cooperate. But if you live nearby, there will be two chances to see it. Saying Goodbye is screening with six other short films on Saturday, May 19th at 2:30pm and on Sunday, May 20th at 3:30pm. Thank you to YESFest for seeking us out and including us in your festival!
