Leonardo to screen for Oscar qualification

'Leonardo' is screening for Oscar qualification this weekend at the Sunset 5 in Los Angles.

Show times are 11:45AM and 12:25PM on the 18th, 19th and 20th.

This is a rare chance to see the film outside a film festival. It is on 35mm with a lovely dolby 5.1 mix. The old fellow is playing with two other qualifying shorts 'Birthday Gift' (animated) and 'After Tomorrow' (Live Action). I don't know what those films are about or anything about them.

Hope you can make it. I am going to be there for the Sunday shows.

Leonardo at Telluride!

Sorry this post took awhile to put up. The Telluride Film Festival doesn't let the filmmakers announce that their films are screening until they release the schedule which is the first day of the festival! Any way Leo played at beautiful Telluride over labor day weekend three times and to a very receptive crowd. The festival is a truly unique experience all about the love of movies and not so much the business or the glitz. I am very grateful for the opportunity.

Leonardo showed at the Chuck Jones cinema. Again another honor. (photo by james cunningham, my roommate at the fest. and director of 'Poppy' another short playing at the festival.)
