On March 30th, the team behind But Not For Me held a roundtable discussion at the NYU Production Lab about our experience making our first feature film. It was a detailed, intimate discussion with great questions from those in attendance. It feels good to share your knowledge and experience with your fellow filmmakers and aspirants. As Kevin Spacey has said, (I'm paraphrasing) when you achieve a certain amount of success, you have an obligation to send the elevator down to those coming up behind you. We're happy to help!
But Not For Me is an Official Selection of NewFilmmakers New York - with a Manhattan screening in March - and Queens World Film Festival (which is also playing the short film I produced, A Warm Spell!) - with a Queens screening in March.
We're excited for both our Queens Premiere (where my production company, Impolite Company, is based) and our Manhattan Premiere.
Don't worry Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, we haven't forgotten about you!
Check it out and share it - don't be stingy!
