The World Premiere of Getting Over might be the end of one long journey, but in reality, it’s just the beginning. And for any long journey, it helps to have friends along for the ride. Very exciting to be a member of Film Independent almost 25 years after I was first an IFP member in New York City. Very excited to take advantage of all their filmmaker benefits, time to take things up a notch!

Photos from Getting Over's post

#SXSW Recap: We saw a ton of movies, met a ton of great people, and collected a ton of business cards. But three films stood out amongst a strong overall slate and just forced you to notice them: Leigh Whannell’s Upgrade from Blumhouse is a high tech sci-fi thriller that grabs you by the throat from the start and never lets go! Jeremy Workman’s The World Before Your Feet is both a love letter to New York and a reminder to see the beauty in the little things, among so much more. Workman’s dedication to the project alone makes this a must-watch! Jim Cummings’ Thunder Road, winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Narrative Feature, is a raw, unflinching look at modern day family life in the heartland. Its smooth camerawork and pure authenticity make it a true standout.
