About the London TIH Screening

We're getting questions about the September 6th screening of TIH in London. Here's the scoop:

Screenings are very difficult to arrange. It seems simple: get a theater, show the film. But whew, it's not like that. So even though we would dearly love to screen all over, it's just not something we can arrange easily from here in LA.

Enter Cassie and her contingent of crazy TIH fans in the UK. They have taken matters into their own hands (there's a Ten Inch joke in there somewhere, but I'll refrain), and are determined to set up a UK screening. They're tracking down a cinema AND arranging projection, and are spreading the word to make sure there are enough people who will attend to make it work.

And just like Shoeless Joe, if they build it, we will come.

The screening is tentatively set for mid-day on Saturday September 6th. If you plan to attend, please email Cassie and let her know how many to expect:

If enough people reply, we can make it work!

Cannes Update

David's just been back from Cannes, and we'd like to give our wonderful friends out there an update on where we are with distribution.

As many of you know, distribution is literally a "one country at a time" deal. It often takes indie films 2 to 3 years to get distribution in any particular country.

As of today, Ten Inch Hero will be distributed and shown in the following countries: Germany (Yay for Kimmy and Dagmar), Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, Belgium (waves hi to the twins!), the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Turkey, Denmark, Luxembourg, and Lichtenstein.

When will be movie be available in these countries? We're not sure. But it's happening, so hang in there.

If your country is not on this list, don't worry...we're working on it! Some countries are just harder to sell than others. But we're making it happen--one country at a time!
