Film Festivals Galore

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since 2015. Shame, shame on Internet Elaine. The good news is that Real Life Elaine has been fairly busy and that’s why she forgot to post. That and laziness, procrastination, depression, and apathy. So, yay!

Here’s some good news that came out of this past year. My film, “Gratuitous Violence”, was accepted to FOUR festivals since the start of 2016. Pretty baller if you ask me. I love the validation, the celebration, all of it. But it’s so frightening to me that the topic (gun violence and the media) remains strikingly relevant. I feel like every time I turn on the news, there’s another mass shooting. (Or a bigot/racist/opportunist who wants to be President spewing hatred and xenophobia. Think there’s a connection?)

Anyway, here’s a list of our upcoming screenings. Please come support me, my film, independent film in general, or popcorn in particular. Thank you!!!! This film was only possible because of the hundreds of backers who helped fund it. Pretty special.
