We have traveled three near impossible journeys.
One was Luke's journey which those who have seen The Man from Coxs River may agree was a saga of Herculean proportions.
The second was the journey to get the film finished. Lost in wilderness with only ourselves (and a few indiegogo supporters) we crafted our own film with no interference from a broadcaster or Government office or a corporate entity .
Now we have embarked on the final act - can we get this film out into the cinemas in front of the general public???
We seem to be doing amazingly well. It must be beginners luck. We have over 31 screenings booked around NSW.
We find a family owned or community owned cinema and call them up. Lovely quirky little rooms of historical significance run by people who care about the preservation of this art.These people are people you can share your enthusiasm with. Who know Fellini from floss, Hitchcock from hyperbole.Check out some of these great cinemas here.
The exhibition of films seems to have changed little from when Charles Chauvel was desperately using all his showman skills to try and compete with the deluge of American product.
Last night we had our first unsolicited inquiry. It was we hope a turning point.
Who wants to experience our uniquely Australian independent documentary in the vintage cinema in their town???
