Since the last time Tom posted in October, we have now entered Yellow Lights into 13 festivals far including Sundance, SXSW, Seattle, 2 in Boston, Phoenix, and more, and we’ve just started to hear back.
Unfortunately, Sundance did not select Yellow Lights to be a part of the 2007 Festival. We knew our odds wouldn’t be great because they only choose 16 films in the Independent Narrative category out of several hundred submissions.
We still plan to enter Yellow Lights into another 5-6 festivals that will be opening later in the year and have many still to hear back from. We’ll be sure to post with our progress as well as screening dates for any festivals we do get into.
Also, in October, I visited Olin’s campus in Boston and recorded a director’s commentary with Tom and Bennett Chabot (Brian in the movie). We also recorded my portion of the behind-the-scenes documentary that you will be able to watch on the DVD coming out next year.
We also got together as many of the cast and crew as we could and took them out for a Thank You dinner for all of the hard work that was put into the making of Yellow Lights. You can view pictures from this reunion dinner on the Flickr: Yellow Lights photoset.
We’re still definitely hoping to shop Yellow Lights around and find a distributor, so make sure to tell your friends to come to our website and check out the trailer!
