Alexandre O. Philippe, writer/director of the upcoming documentary fanfilm The People vs George Lucas, shares this exciting news (and we’ll keep our readers posted on when the film’s leaving the USA)…
Dear friends & PvG fans,
THIS IS THE NEWS YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!
We’re extremely proud to announce that after 2 1/2 years of intense production, 63,686 frequent flier miles, 634 hours of footage, 14TB of drive space, 126 interviews, 719 fan submissions, and countless white nights, THE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS will finally world premiere, fresh off the editing press, at the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, Texas (March 12th to March 21st 2010)! And if that’s not good enough, they included our film in their Spotlight Premiere section, alongside the latest releases from Steven Soderbergh, Michel Gondry, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Shane Meadows! We’re truly humbled.
First of all, you know what this means: help us spread the news like wildfire! The good news is we’ve made your job easy. First, go check out our new website. You’ll see some changes there, including a brand-new navigation page, which will give you access to our new pre-release trailer. Our brand-new official poster is available for download under our Press Kit tab, and you’ll also find a folder of stills and sketches from the film there, which are all safe to post online. So please tell your friends, blog about us, mention us in forums, join us on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.
We hope to see some of you in Austin next month, of course. Be sure to check the SXSW website for updates on screenings, how to purchase tickets, etc. And if Austin’s a little too far, far away for you, please be patient with us. Have movie. Will travel.
This movie, truly, is for you!
