The Charleston International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow!  Saying Goodbye doesn’t screen until Saturday, but if you’re a fan of independent films and live in the Charleston area, there’s a lot to do and see before then.  Check out the official program for the list of screenings, workshops, and after parties.

The American TheaterSince we’ve already had our world premiere, maybe we should be relaxed and calm about this festival, but we can’t help being a bit jittery with excitement.  This is our hometown film festival, so there will be lots of family and friends in attendance (we hope!).  So many people have been enthusiastic and supportive throughout this process, and it will be fun to sit in the theater with them as they finally get to see the end product.

We will also have several of the film’s stars there to help us celebrate.  Mary Elizabeth Cobb, who played sweet nurse Kathy, is making the drive from Atlanta to be part of the fun.  And Sue Plassmann, who played Eunice’s daughter Tina, is also joining us.  And of course, no party would be complete without Stuffy the Stand-in.  He’s sleeping a few extra hours each day to make sure he looks his best.

We’ll be screening in a block with seven other shorts on Saturday, May 21st at 3:00pm at the American Theater on King Street.  You can buy your tickets in advance at this link, and use the code CIFFVR to get $2.00 off each ticket.  We hope you can join us for the big Charleston premiere!
