billy was accepted into Cinequest!!

So, we got this email today:

"Thank you very much for your submission of BILLY WAS A DEAF KID for the 2009 Cinequest Film Festival. We were absolutely absorbed by the film and know it would make a great addition to the exciting program for the upcoming Cinequest Film Festival.

We are honored to invite BILLY WAS A DEAF KID to participate in the 19th Annual Cinequest Film Festival as part of the New Visions Competition, where it will be eligible for the New Visions Awars and the Audience Award. Cinequest will occur February 25 - March 8, 2009 in the heart of Silicon Valley.

A festival of discovery, Cinequest seeks new voices in cinema and celebrates those voices through an adventurous and eclectic program for film artists, film lovers and film technologies. Our publicity and marketing teams will work with you to put in place an aggressive campaign for your film and in the coming weeks will be talking with you further about how we can provide
you with the ideal festival event.

We are attaching the publicity forms for requested materials, and we are here to answer any questions you may have. We cannot wait to work with you and your film to give you fantastic screenings!"

We emailed them just to say thanks and we got this, even better, email back:

"I just saw the film the other day and was completely mesmerized by the lead characters. We are all about celebrating the kind of films your team has made, and we are thrilled to have you a part of the festival.

I am cc'ing Darnisha Bishop, who is coordinating the p.r. materials with filmmakers. Definitely feel free to let us know if you need anything.

Best Wishes,
Michael Rabehl
Cinequest Programming Director"

Cinequest is one of the top ten US film fests, so this could potentially be a really really good thing!

We'll let everyone know about any new news.

And to think that this all started with Ace and Frank and the Three is a proud moment, I tell ya.
