  1. Hi Nina,

    I saw this last night at the Leeds (UK) film festival and absolutely loved it! I loved the attention to detail and the overall concept. It was also a surprise to see two of my friends mentioned in the credits for back up vocals. You were a thesis teacher for one of them at Parsons!

  2. I love this film so much. Please please send it back to Vancouver, Canada – I want all of my friends to see it!!

    Good luck with your next project – you are amazing!

    bests always,

  3. Hi there! I just saw it tonight at the Asheville Film Festival, and we adored it!! Congrats on all the accolades thus far…I sure would love to be able to buy this on dvd or something (as well as the soundtrack…*rubs chin*).

    Anyway, great job!! 😀


  4. I would totally buy Sita Sings the Blues on DVD now, and then see it in a theater if there is ever a screening nearby. Love the images and the trailer!

  5. Hi Nina,

    Though I cannot see it in your listings but I just discovered this morning that your Sita is also coming to Hungary (and actually to Austria as well)next week. It really made my day, as I was already amazed by the trailer and hoped that you would eventually succeed with making your film available on DVD so that we do not have to hunt for the screening dates and places anymore. (However I still cross my fingers and wish you manage it one day)

    The name of the festival is Anilogue, and I absolutely look forward to see your film next week in Budapest.

  6. Dear nina i love your comics in vhemt and that solving this worlds problem is not by using and bay enviromental things only, we have also to think on ouer own speices repreduction.
    6.7 billon and 218000 new earth citicen each day is just enough.
    Exponentiall growth is what gonna kill us all
