I Am What I Play blog moves to Facebook

Happy 2017!  As much of an absolute delight as it is running this blog, the truth of the matter is social media is where it’s at.  We post much more frequently on our Facebook page so we invite you to join us there going forward, for updates on the film and other radio tidbits.

If you haven’t already, hopefully you will get to see the film in 2017.  Enjoy!

State of the Union

We haven’t been very active on this film blog the last couple of months as we’ve been tying up some loose ends with music licensing in the movie and other things connected with our distributors.  A reminder that we have had a US distributor since just before the film premiered, 7th Art Releasing. Earlier this year, Blue Ant International picked up the film for international distribution and CBC television in Canada acquired the film for national broadcast. The next showing in Canada will be on the Documentary Channel, Dec 18 at 9:00 pm EST.

The distributors are talking with different broadcasters in several countries about acquiring the film so we hope to have some more good news in 2017.

We appreciate all who have gotten in touch on social media or by email to ask where they can see the film.  We are anxious for it to be available online in some capacity but the distributors handle that aspect of it so we will update you on this page in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we are still very much open to doing special screenings with radio communities in various North American cities.  If you think there is an opportunity where you live, and a suitable venue, don’t hesitate to get in touch and hopefully we can set up a screening.

Lastly, sometime early next year we hope to make available on YouTube some interview clips that never made it into the film. Pat, Meg, Charles and David had so many great stories to tell and we just didn’t have room for all of them in the final cut. But a number will see the light of day on YouTube so again, stay tuned to this page for more info on that coming soon!

We are also pleased to announce an international distribution deal with Blue Ant Media.  They took the film to France earlier this year for MIPCOM, the annual international broadcasting trade show.
