July 26, 1998
My first acceptance! Months ago I'd dropped a tape off at the Anthology
Film Archives, one of NYC's four or five functioning art/revival houses,
for the New Filmmakers series that began there recently. Tonight
Barney Oldfield, who programs the series, called to tell me that he liked
the film and wants to show it--we chose Wednesday, September 30 for its
world premiere date. From an industry point of view, I suppose the
Anthology might not be the most prestigious venue that could have shown
HONEYMOON, but it's hallowed ground for film buffs everywhere--I'll be
listed in the same catalog that I pore over religously every two months.
Any way you look at it, it feels really good to hear a yes for once.
