Sedona Film Festival to Screen Radio Free Albemuth

Exciting news from director John Simon:
"We are having a sneak preview of Radio Free Albemuth at the Sedona Film Festival in Arizona this upcoming week.
There will be two screenings - a small one on Thursday, Feb. 25 at the Studio Live Theatre at 7:30 pm.
and a larger one in the main Festival screening theatre on Saturday night, February 27th at, the Harkins Theatre 2 at 9:55 pm
My personal suggestion would be to go to the Saturday screening - bigger screen, better sound.
It's being billed as a "sneak preview" "work-in-progress" screening. The film is for all intents and purposes complete - really just the end titles need to be finished.
It's not inconceivable that reactions to the screening might cause us to reconsider the length - which right now is 114 minutes without credits.
So there is some possibility, this will be the only chance to see the movie in this version --- which represents my sole cut and vision of the film.
Obviously, we're hoping/anticipating a good reaction - as we've had so far to those we've screened the movie for, including yourself.
Here's a link to the Festival website. Tickets are $10 for the screenings.
If any PKD fans or listers show up, I'd love to have them introduce themselves to me. I'll be there for Q&A at the end of both screenings.
We could use your support and that of PKD readers."
