The Road to the Premiere

The Road to the Premiere

In case you haven’t been following us very closely or are just checking Trichster out for the first time, we had an exciting journey to get to where we are today and the latest chapter is with our premiere at SoHo International Film Festival – affectionately shortened to SoHo6. When we heard we were accepted to SoHo6 our team was over the moon. We all did the first of many happy dances in this story. (you know how fond we are of happy dances) We have always talked about how great it would be to have our first public screening in New York City.

Trichster began in New York, was mostly shot in New York and New Jersey and finished its post in New York – so we couldn’t think of a better place to have our World Premiere than at the SoHo International Film Festival.

But after we got accepted, what happened next is every filmmaker’s dream. Not long after tickets sales for our screening were open to the public the screening sold out! SOLD OUT! We filled a theater with people who wanted to see our film a MONTH before the screening is going to happen. Cue second happy dance!

We’ve always said our goal is to get as many people to see Trichster as possible to raise awareness for trichotillomania so to have something like a sold out premiere is fantastic.

BUT WAIT! There’s more! Our friends at SoHo6 saw that we sold out so far in advance and responded to the demand for more seats. That’s right! They were able to arrange a SECOND SCREENING for us during their festival. I think you know what’s coming next: happy dance numero tres!

So if you weren’t able to make it or didn’t get tickets in time to the first screening, you have a still have a chance to see Trichster at its first film festival. The second screening is Wednesday, May 20th at 5:10pm – here’s a link for those tickets:

We are so grateful to the support of everyone who’s helped us make this film, from friends and family to crowdfunders to crew to all the amazing people in the film and now to SoHo. With your help Trichster has come so far! We’re looking forward to sharing the film with the world and our premiere is a big, big start!

So stay tuned for more fun stories, photos and updates from the festival and, of course, many more happy dances ahead!
