THE STORM HAS ARRIVED

LCLs, supporters, weird Internet staulkers:

WE SOLD "HUMBOLDT COUNTY."

We've been holding onto the news until it was official and the deal was signed and the contracts were printed - and now it is.

"HUMBOLDT COUNTY" WILL BE COMING TO THEATERS THIS FALL!!!!!!!!!!

We're so excited we can hardly contain ourselves. Magnolia Pictures bought the film and will release it in September.

Sorry we have been so cagey over the last month or so. Remember that blog post about going to New York for a "meeting"? That was to meet the Magnolia people face to face and figure out if it was a company we could see ourselves working with. They bought us lunch, so the answer was "yes" (Us Jews are suckers for a free lunch).

So...tell your family, tell your friends, tell your enemies to go go go to the theater to see the movie opening weekend.

And as far as opening weekend goes we will be opening in:

San Francisco
Seattle
Portland
Chicago
Austin

Where we go from there will depend on how the film does in those five markets. So, let's harness the power of the LCLs and unleash "Humboldt County" upon the world.

We also wanted to take this moment to say thanks to all of you who have supported the film and to let you know that though one journey has just ended, we are about to embark on another one...to fill those theaters!!!!!!!

Peace, love, and Humboldt
Danny & Darren

P.S. For all of you LCLs living in and around the actual Humboldt County: Stay tuned, as there may also be news soon of a screening even closer to you than SF and even sooner than our theatrical release.

Hey Bradley,

We can assure you this - if the film does well in the five cities we're opening in, it WILL come to NYC. So...get absolutely everyone you know in Seattle, Portland, San Fran, Chicago and Austin to go see the movie opening night!

Peace,
d

Hey, I'm a SoHum native but I'll be back in college in Portland when it premieres in Humboldt...how do I go about attending the premiere in Portland?

Hey Rebekah,

Thanks for the inquiry. Let me clarify: the film will be coming out into theaters in Portland. So you will be able to go to your local theater and see the movie just as you would any other film. So have no fear! You'll see it this fall!

Thanks for supporting the film!
Danny
