After nine years, the documentary film version of "Lost Cinemas" is finally completed. And I've put together a new website just for the film--check it out at: lostcinemas.info.
I'm very excited to get this released to you, the public, as soon as possible--the only thing holding this up is the expense of the archival rights (pictures, footage, and music) and a few other ancillary finishing costs such as insurance.
I've been fortunate enough to secure fiscal sponsorship from the International Documentary Association (IDA), whose established 501(c)(3) status will help those of you who want to contribute by qualifying your donation as a tax deduction; of course, you should consult your tax advisor for details on how you can make your contribution work for you this way.
You'll find more details on this--as well as a gallery, more background on the film, some new clips, and even downloadable Lost Cinemas of Greater Des Moines wallpaper--on the new website, as well as a button that will take you to IDA's donation link.
I hope you're as excited as I am that the film has reached this stage. It's been a long haul, but I fully believe it's been worth it on so many levels. Let's get through this final stretch and get "Lost Cinemas" out to festivals, competitions, theatres, and a home video DVD release!
Thanks to ALL of you for your support, contributions, and enthusiasm over the years!
