Back to our story: we last saw Sita Sings the Blues about to have her North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival:
Friday, April 25, 8:15 pm, AMC Village VII
AMC Village VII (AV7)
66 Third Avenue (at 11th Street)
I’m happy to announce we now have a venue for the premiere afterparty:
1 W 3rd St
New York, NY 10012
They’ll make space for us as a group at 10pm onwards, and we’ll order and pay for food and drinks like other customers. They’ll also play “our” music. Yays!
I had a great time in Copenhagen! The NATFILM festival took excellent care of me, fed me well, and sent people to pick me up when I was too tired or confused to navigate the twisty streets myself. The audience for Sita was very sweet and generous and didn’t mind that the sound mysteriously switched from Dolby Surround to quiet analog stereo mid-way through the screening. Although I didn’t attend many films, the festival program looked excellent; they programmed not one, not two, but THREE Guy Maddin films, along with Sita and Loins of Punjab Presents, so they clearly have exquisite taste.
