Garden State Film Festival, April 2 – 5

Posted on Updated on

Thank you, New Jersey!!!

garden-state-film-festival2You have chosen – wisely.  We know New Jersey folks have been waiting patiently for the premiere of  “the one” – that one great film – the film to solve all of the problems of our current times.  THREE-FIFTY is not that film but it’s in your festival anyway.  Yeah!  Trust us, screening THREE-FIFTY will take the Garden State and it’s  Film Festival to new heights of, ummm –  well, insanity and laughter.  This movie will complete you.

The Garden State Film Festival  will screen THREE-FIFTY sometime between April 2 – 5.  Check here for specific day and time updates.

The artistic philosophy of the Garden State Film Festival is rooted in the celebration of the independent film genre and the creation of a forum where local and other independent filmmakers can exhibit their work.  We would be those “others”.

Since 2003, such industry notables such as Glenn Close, Frank Vincent, Batman producer Michael Uslan, Austin Pendleton, Kurtwood Smith, James Gandolfini, Budd Schulberg and others have lent their support.  And now, those celebrities can say they’ve supported the same festival that screened Maurice Chauvet’s THREE-FIFTY — that hilarious tale of late fees, privacy rights and the easy availability of deeply personal details of your life.  We know they’ve been waiting to be included in the same paragraph with us.

Three-Fifty wins at Herberger College of the Arts, Arizona State Univ.

Posted on Updated on

John Spiak, Curator for the 12th Annual Arizona State University Art Museum Short Film Festival chose Three-Fifty for their annual film festival which was held in April.
Three-Fifty was the winner of the “LeBlanc Audience Choice” award.
As I’ve mentioned before “audience choice” is my award of choice as that’s the whole point of making the film.  There are thousands and thousands of people now who have seen Three-Fifty and appreciate it and are laughing around the world.   That works for us!  We just wish we could meet all of you!

The group of films from their festival will be traveling to the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum — stay tuned and we’ll let you know when, where, etc.
A big THANK YOU to John for choosing Three-Fifty.

A copy of “Three-Fifty” for your collection?

Posted on Updated on

Dear Friends and Fans… As always, thanks for your support. We appreciate it!  Three-Fifty now has 5 awards, and festival requests still arrive weekly. Fantastic.
Right now you can get your own copy of THREE-FIFTY for your home collection with your membership to Spiritual Cineman Circle. 
http://www.spiritualcinemacircle.com/scc/ecs/public/main/ourFilms.html
Is Three-Fifty a spiritual film?  Think about it.  It’s a story of what happens when you don’t tell the truth, a story of CONSEQUENCES, and a redemptive ending — all while making you laugh your ass off!   That’s pretty spiritual.  
Buy it, keep it, share with giggley friends…;-)

Thanks for keeping up with Three-Fifty!
