Thank you, Salem Film Fest!

My wife, dog, and I hopped in the car on Friday morning at 7:00 and drove 17 hours to Salem, MA to be part of the Salem Film Fest. It’s a really cool documentary-only and invite-only documentary film festival that is in its 4th year.

Winnie and Guff

We arrived early morning and stayed at the Salem Inn, which was built in 1835. I got up a few hours later for a first time documentary filmmakers panel with three other filmmakers from two films: A Good Day to Die, and The Sons of Perdition. It was a fun panel, and despite their films’ subject-matters being quite different than Breaking and Entering, I felt a kinship with them. They clearly have a lot of passion and it was nice to see.

Screening

The screening went really well, and we had a good Q and A afterwards. We met a great woman there named Rhonda Moskowitz who is working on her own documentary, and actually started a documentary filmmaking club in Boston where they talk about their docs, show rough cuts, etc… called Connect the Docs. Couldn’t meet a nicer woman, and I can’t wait to see her film in early 2012.

My wife, Winnie, and I ended up hanging out a bit later with Jennilyn Merten (The Sons of Perdition), and swapped war stories. I haven’t seen her film yet, but listening to what she went through shooting her documentary had me on the edge of my seat, so I’ll definitely check it out when it comes to Chicago. I think she said that it will be on Oprah’s OWN channel in August. Winnie tried on her glasses later and is trying to find her own pair on ebay.

Before I go to these film festivals I always promise myself that I’ll take a lot of pictures and that I’ll have the audience sign up for the mailing list, and I always forget to do both. But I have a few pictures here.

As always, I regret not going to more screenings, but it was tough with our dog, Guffman, being there.

Now Winnie, Guffman, and I are unwinding and catching up on emails at her family friend’s house in Cape Cod. It’s off-season, but going on long walks during the day and eating good food at night is good for the soul.

Thanks to Salem and the film festival!

Wisconsin Film Festival

Over a dozen years ago I stumbled on a documentary that changed my life called “American Movie.” It’s the story of a Milwaukee, WI man who is trying to make his first feature film. In the middle of everything he realizes he has to finish his short film called “Coven” to try to raise money for his feature. It’s an amazing movie and opened my eyes to what documentaries could be. There are other films that have inspired me along the way, but none more than “American Movie.”

Soon after seeing “American Movie” I was lucky enough to see “Coven” at a packed movie theater as part of the Wisconsin Film Festival. Now years later I’m thrilled to announce that we’ll be part of the Wisconsin Film Festival on April 2, at 11:00 a.m. It will be playing at the Student Union Theater, which is enormous and beautiful, so spread the word.  (And if you haven’t seen “American Movie” yet, go rent it tonight!)

Here’s the link.

Thank you, New York!! Great Reviews! Great Times!

Wow! What an amazing weekend at the ReRun Gastropub Theater’s screening of our film. The premiere was sold out with an enthusiastic crowd. Thanks to everyone who came out to support it, and thanks to Aaron Hillis and the theater for bringing us in. Thanks also to the World’s Fastest Talking Woman, Fran Capo, for putting on quite a show.

We received several great reviews, including the New York Times, who called Breaking and Entering, “a brisk and absorbing tour of the human ego!

Also, Variety said, “Often hilarious, occasionally poignant and altogether revelatory… A breakout crowd-pleaser!

And lastly BeaconPass said, “The record for longest laugh is almost certain to be determined at a screening of BREAKING AND ENTERING. Prepare to be touched, regardless of your giggling…

Here are some pictures of the event:

Salem Film Fest and Macon Film Festival!

Happy to announce that we’ve been invited to be part of two more film festivals: The Salem Film Fest and the Macon Film Festival. I don’t have the exact dates and times when Breaking and Entering will be playing at either yet, but sometime between March 4-10 for Salem and Feb. 17-20th for Macon.

Both look like great film festivals.

The Salem Film Fest is an all-documentary film festival outside of Boston (in Salem, MA) with documentaries from around the world, and the Macon Film Festival in Macon, GA plays most of its films at the gorgeous Cox Capitol Theatre. We’re honored to be part of both. More details when we get them.
