Post-CIFF notes

Me with Vvinni outside the Atlas Theater in Cheyenne

Discouraging Words had its first western-states screening on Saturday as part of the Cheyenne International Film Festival. I want to thank festival organizers Alan O’Hashi and Michael Conti, as well as all the good people who came out to the program. I was particularly amused to hear from a number of people who are intimately involved in the Wyoming political scene who told me that we got the characters exactly right.

Some people at the festival have expressed interest in purchasing DVDs. Check back here in exactly two months—that’s July 24th—for more information about how to get your hands on your very own copy of the movie. If you would like to receive an email when the DVD becomes available, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll be in touch.

There will be screenings in Colorado this summer, although nothing is set in stone yet. If you would like to arrange your own private screening for friends, family, neighbors, passing strangers on the street… please send an email to

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth…

…And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…
…put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
