These immortalized words can only mean one thing: Two Jackets is going back to the South Dakota Film Festival!
This year's fest will be held September 24-28 in Aberdeen (the Hub City!) Eric and I will be in attendance to support our electrifying superhero comedy, Meanwhile, at the Citadel of Superheroes…! The South Dakota screening is especially exciting because we will be premiering the extended festival cut of the film, which presents Lizzy Lectric’s story as we originally intended. The new material fully develops the soul of the movie, thanks in huge part to the sincerity and hilarity of our cast’s work. Some new music from rhythm-writer Reed Reimer and more post-production wizardry from Master Carlson elevate this new cut into a special experience. We can’t wait to share it with you!
If you’ve never been to SDFF, I highly recommend it. Last year was my first year in attendance, and I had an absolute blast. The fest’s organizers know how to treat their guests right, with entertaining and eclectic programming and plenty of food, beverage, and hootenanny at the after parties (which go until dawn). I love my home state, and I’m incredibly proud that it hosts such a welcoming fest, celebrating the art form I love in its incredibly diverse and fantastically weird glory.
There is indeed something happening in the middle of nowhere, and I’ll see you there!
