Coming to a Theater near Me!
I'm so excited - Mike Ott's Gotham Award-winning Littlerock finally opens this Friday in New York at Cinema Village, screening daily at 3:00 pm and 7:10 pm. Mike and co-writer and star Atsuko Okatsuka will hold Q&A's following the 7:10 screenings on Friday and Saturday. The Gotham Award package included this Cinema Village run and a distribution support grant of $15,000 from RBC Capital Markets, so the film will be opening also in LA, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Denver throughout September. After winning the Gotham Award (and playing 20+ festivals internationally), Mike also won the 2011 Someone to Watch Award at the Independent Spirit Awards. Thanks to a grant for the San Francisco Film Society, Mike has already shot his next film, Teenage Wasteland, also starring Atsuko and Littlerock's Cory Zachariah. I encourage you all to check out Littlerock this weekend!
