Townies at Arlene's Grocery
After a whirlwind tour of film festivals across the country, the producers of Townies had decided to take a break to concentrate on scripts, short films, and client projects. However, with four weekends jam packed with more than 500 films, the Arlene's Grocery Picture Show looked like way too much fun to pass up. So, if you happen to find yourself in New York City on Saturday, April 23, 2005 at 5 p.m., stop inside Arlene's Grocery located at 95 Stanton Street for the last (maybe…) film festival appearance of Townies.
Neo-Pangea's tale was well received by the entry panel. Festival Director Dave Hollander even went so far as to exclaim, “At last, it's this generation's Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Outstanding.” Your bribe is in the mail, Dave.
“We're really excited to be a part of this show,” explained Director Brett Bagenstose. “Soupy Sales, the Suicide Girls, and Townies… all under one roof. It's gonna be awesome. Admission is free, so, I may never leave.”
“And, it's a good excuse to get back to New York and visit McSorley's,” added Producer Robert Trate.
The production team has also been invited to attend The Groceries award show on Monday, May 16, 2005 as Townies has been nominated as “Best Narrative Feature”. The lucky film to win this prestigious award will be presented with a can of pigeon peas.
