The short film Impossible Dreams, based on my Hugo-winning story of the same name, is screening tonight in San Francisco as part of SF in SF! Here’s where and when:
The Variety Preview Room
582 Market St. @ Montgomery
1st floor of The Hobart Bldg.
Doors Open 6:00PM
Film starts: 7:00PM
Just take BART to Montgomery if you don’t want the hassle of finding parking. I’ll do a ten- or fifteen-minute intro about the story and the movie (which is itself only 20 minutes long). The short film will be followed by the Harlan Ellison documentary Dreams with Sharp Teeth. I hope to see lots of you locals there. (And, you know, anyone farther away who feels like jumping on a plane.) There’s a cash bar. Donations are welcome at the door ($5-$10 suggested), and benefit the Variety Children’s Charity of Northern California.
My wife and I will likely slip out during the Ellison movie to get some dinner, since we won’t have time to eat before the event, so if you want to talk to me, captivate me beforehand!
I hope it was a fantastic success!
There were some dreadful technical problems, actually. The few in attendance ended up huddled around a computer monitor to watch it in the lobby, since the projector wasn’t working. Everyone liked the film though.
Well, that’s less than ideal. Glad the film was enjoyed!
Will the movie be in distribution at all?
No, it won’t be distributed (it can’t be, contractually — we gave the director the rights to make a movie for free, with the understanding that it only be screened at festivals or in other not-for-profit settings). I hope to show it at some conventions though.
Well, hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to see it some day 🙂
