A&E is a go, plus we add Seattle to our upcoming cities

Ok, well there's no confusion now. We are an official selection for the A&E IndieFilm Spotlight competition. In the coming weeks Wiener's going to be profiled on the network and their website. When we get more specifics we'll post them here.

Wiener's also on its way to Seattle this June. We'll be screening as part of the Seattle True Independent Film Festival. Dates are TBD.

Check back soon!

New Jersey, A&E, and Arizona.

Well last one first. The Tucson screening is confirmed. April 24th, at 7:30pm, Wiener will screen at La Placita Village Cinema (Broadway Blvd & Church Ave) as part of the Arizona International Film Festival. Quite a few of our stars are going to be in attendance so if you can make the screening please do - you'll be in for a treat. This is an outdoor venue, so a lot of people will be bringing their dogs.

People are asking me about the A&E IndieFilm Spotlight thing. I've received some clarification on this - we're actually one of a very few films at the Palm Beach Int'l Film Festival selected for this competition, but the winner only enters a pool of several other films (from 3 other fests) - one of which will have its trailer aired on A&E. Five others will be profiled on the network. So exciting to be nominated, but unfortunately - we're not a lock for any screen time yet. We'll be sure to let you know if/when we hit the cable channel's airwaves.

Last but not least, this weekend is our Northeast US premiere at the Garden State Film Festival in Asbury Park, NJ. We screen at 1:15pm at the Berkeley #1 (1401 Ocean Ave). This will also be a fundraiser for the local humane society, so be sure to show your support if you are in the neighborhood.

More soon!
