I live in New York and am thinking about coming to LA to see your film! When will you know the day it will be shown?

The president of Cinecon informed me he was trying to have it on Saturday September 2, in the afternoon, but he has not fully confirmed that yet. But it will be on that weekend. I should know more in the coming week, as they finish the schedule and will post here as soon as I know. Thanks for writing in! ...Linda
