How did the Pinney-Mini screening go?

The screening was filled to capacity. The audience was warm and energetic and had thoughtful questions. The event was well managed and my interactions with staff were pleasant. I'm grateful to friends and collaborators who attended. I'm told I did well with my Q&A. So, it went great, really great! Special thanks to @aboett for taking most of pictures below.

3rd annual Pinney Mini Film Fest on Friday, March 27

@madisonlibrary has put together a great series of events previewing the '15 WFF. I'll be at the 3/27 event reprising The Round Barns of Vernon County from last year's WFF. I'll do a Q&A along with two other filmmakers. Thanks to librarian Jaime Vache for the invitation to me and co-director Shahin Izadi. Shahin can't be at the event, but will cheer me on from Philadelphia.

"The fun continues at the 3rd annual Pinney Mini Film Fest on Friday, March 27 from 6-8 pm.  Enjoy screenings of three films that played at the 2014 WFF and enjoy Q&A sessions with the film Directors themselves!"

Viroqua Screening on April 27th at 2:00pm

The Round Barns of Vernon County, fresh from its premiere at the Wisconsin Film Festival, will show at the Temple Theater in downtown Viroqua on Sunday, April 27th at 2:00 p.m. The film and program are expected to run approximately one hour; both are free and open to the public and suitable for all audiences. An informal reception will follow at Main Street Station.

Viroqua native David Macasaet directed and edited the documentary with co-director and cinematographer, Shahin Izadi. “We wanted to convey the beauty of the area and share the stories connected to the round barns,” said Macasaet. “We hope the film gives people a chance to experience the round barns if they can’t see them in person.” Mr. Macasaet will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the making of the film immediately following the screening.
