Many of you know that my boyfriend Craig (whose birthday is today) is a film director who wrote and directed his first feature, True Adolescents, two summers ago in the Pacific Northwest. Now–at last!–the movie is having its premiere: it was announced today that Craig’s movie is one of only 7 movies (out of 750 submissions) in the Narrative Features competition at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. And so, yes, that means we’re heading to Austin in March (my first time in Texas!) and we hope to see YOU at his screening. But in the meantime, please join the True Adolescents fan page on Facebook, bookmark the True Adolescents website, and make the awesome poster (created by celebrated comic book artist Cliff Chiang) your desktop image. Also: root for Melissa Leo at the Oscars–she’s in Craig’s movie and now she’s up for Best Actress for “Frozen River.” This is going to be an exciting year and I’ll definitely keep you posted here as our journey into the glamorous world of Hollywood–or, rather, Independent Cinema–begins.
