For Immediate Release
Migrating, Sabbaticals, and Philanthropy
Hey Fellow Film Addicts!
Someone tried telling us it was already July. What Liars! Wait... Frizzle frazzle. It is July!!
It looks like it's high time for some exclusive top level updates, peeps.
The Couch Fest Films base camp is migrating. We have capped out the Internet data plans in all the cafes here in Reykjavik, Iceland. So, it's time to migrate out feisty base camp to another local. While our scrappy team works from around the world, our top brass will be moving to Austin, Texas on Sept 1st (, y'all).
Couch Fest Film will be on Sabbatical for 2013. Sabbatical? That sounds mysterious and epic. Kind of...Sabbatical is also academic speak for lazy. With the team moving to Austin, we'll be too busy looking for boring day jobs so we don't have to dumpster dive out of necessity. Once we secure day jobs, we can then waste our employer's time as we secretly exploit work hours in 2013 developing a bigger and better battle plan for our global empire for next year in 2014. Paradigms will be crushed, outdated film execs will have crippling panic attacks, pivotal films will be discovered and passionate communities will be empowered. Yazow!
Couch Fest Films is seeking Philanthropy. That's a fancy way of saying we are looking for more cashola. Yep. So, in preparation for next year's fest in 2014, we will be securing resources from deep-pocketed smarty pants who are wise enough to support our program of delivering award-winning films at cozy and unique locations around the world. If you have any hot leads, send them our way.
Couch Fest Films will keep you posted. We love sharing. So, yes, our press office in Seattle will keep you posted with calculated and classified leaks from our board members' meetings. For example, we have a pile of Couch Fest Films shirts we still want to sell, we will continue to post previous winning films as they come online, and we have ambitious plans for some crowd funding drives.
So, cosmic chest thumps and we'll definitely be in touch!
