At Last: Alaska Far Away Comes to the Bay Area!

It has been a long time coming, but within the past month Alaska Far Away finally debuted in the San Francisco Bay Area - both in a live screening AND on public television!

Thank you to everyone who came to our free screening at the Letterman Digital Arts Center on July 15th. We are grateful to our friends at LDAC for allowing us to use their beautiful theatre, and everyone enjoyed spending some quality time with Yoda, Darth Vader, and the Imperial Storm Trooper before the show.

Our enthusiastic audience!

Everyone seemed to enjoy the screening, including a lively question-and-answer session afterwards. It is always a pleasure to show our film to a live audience, but holding a screening in our home town in front of family and friends was especially sweet.

And then on Sunday, August 7, we received more good news: Alaska Far Away received its public television broadcast premiere on KRCB-TV. We hadn't received advance notice, but that night several of our friends and family started texting the good news to us - our film was on the air. Many thanks to KRCB, which broadcasts from Rohnert Park down through San Francisco. Let's hope the other Bay Area stations pick it up as well. If we get advance notice of any broadcasts, we will post them on our Facebook page, on Twitter, and, if possible, by sending out an email to our followers.

Next stop: We're heading back to the Alaska State Fair in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more news!
