Big news everybody-- the Pioneer Theater in NYC has offered to do a run of The Changeling from May 16-26!

You can find showtimes and information about the run here:

The Pioneer is a nice 99-seat theater in the East Village which shows a wide variety of new and old films from around the world. The Pioneer gets a fair amount of press for their films, and usually gets reviews from the New York Times, Time Out, the Village Voice, etc.

As some of you may remember, we had a private screening of The Changeling for cast, crew, and funders back in January, 2006. Ray Privett, the programmer there, saw that screening and was quite taken by the film and was waiting for me to get done with the festival circuit before asking the question.

So a few months ago, Ray asked how things were going with the film. He was shocked to hear we had not gotten into a single festival (he attends a lot of festivals to scout films and sees many movies he considers much worse than The Changeling) and told me he would LOVE to show it at his theater.

This run is a great vindication for us, since most filmmakers go to festivals for the sole purpose of getting their film released. And we achieved this without going the festival route. So there!

We're all very excited about this and can use everyone's help in spreading the word. I've said before that I have no idea if anyone reads this blog, but if you DO-- tell your friends about the run!
