I've decided to go ahead with the screening at AMMI.  Some of my friends expressed concern that film-industry types might be unlikely to make the journey to Queens, but I eventually reminded myself that film-industry types are unlikely to respond well to the film anyway and probably shouldn't even be invited.  The only influential people I'm really interested in at this point are critics of the film-buff persuasion, who have liked the film thus far when they've seen it; and all film buffs know how to get to AMMI.  My fantasy of how to promote the film is that critics who like the film might help me get into film festivals.  And only after some success on the festival circuit (a pretty far-fetched concept, I admit) would I attempt to get the film to distributors and such.
