News You Can Use

Our friend and all around really nice guy, filmmaker Gregg Holtgrewe, has launched a new website for his incredible film Dawning. If you've followed this blog for ohhhhhh, at least the last year and a half or so, you know of my affinity and passion for the film. It has truly been an amazing experience, tracking the progress of it and Gregg's tireless efforts to expose it to the masses. I mean just look at the number of awards received and festivals screened at.

He's still tweaking the film a tiny bit (a new score is being added which sounds fantastic) and when all is done, it will be available for purchase through the site. I'm hoping before Christmas as it will make for an awesome stocking stuffer.

But for now, check out the site's online store. Some pretty killer T's and movie posters. Hooray for real movie poster, Photoshop-less, art!

Speaking of screenings, Dawning will be showing at the 2010 Dark Bridges Film Festival in Saskatoon, Canada on Friday, Sept. 23rd. *Does Google map search for Saskatoon, Canada. Ah yes, here it Saskatchewan, east of Calgary and Edmonton*

Also showing at the festival is the phenomenal Alice Jacobs is Dead, the best horror movie released in 2010 not released in 2010 [REC 2], along with many many others.

If we have any readers living in Canuckland, or if you live anywhere within driving distance of the Great White North, this indeedy looks to be one killer festival. Check out all the deets here:

You can also check out the latest and greatest trailer for Dawning below. I'll also keep you fine peeps informed of the actual DVD release date.

Don't be coy, Mr Blurb!

It seems like forever since I saw this, but watching that trailer really made me want to see it again.

@Matt, not at all good sir! I can't wait for the 'final' version.

@Becky, it certainly is great news. He's worked really hard and I know there is more to come!

@Nicole, thanks! It's a truly incredible film. I can't say enough about it.

@Emily, thanks. I'm know that Gregg appreciates the support.

This movie and Long Pigs, a Canadian production about a cooking loving cannibal are 2 of the best independent films I've seen this year
