June has been an incredible month.
Sealaska shareholders voted for their Board of Directors and the shareholders had the opportunity to vote against discretionary voting. Discretionary voting allows the sitting board to use these shareholders’ votes to assign to their own candidates which doesn’t make for a fair and even voting system for the Independents. Controversially, Sealaska made sure to tell all shareholders that discretionary voting should stay in place.
Today you can catch the last airing of Musicwood on the Russian TV network RT, the film has been screening all month.
We screened the film in UK theaters in 7 cities around the country and we also had our last US theatrical screenings in Washington DC to fantastic audiences every night. The film is widely available in the US on digital platforms but now is also available on iTunes in Canada, which is really exciting. We will also screen on AMC in Asia and the Middle East later this year, and we are working hard to make the film available in Europe and other continents around the world. In the meantime we do have DVDs available and have been shipping them all around the world.
Spring of 2014, and Musicwood is available on iTunes and Amazon Instant, and events continue to accrue! Hot off the heels of several screenings throughout the US and Canada, we recently got the news that Musicwood will be screening in the UK this summer as part of the touring UK Green Film Festival and in Washington DC in early June. More info to come, watch this space. Also, on the press front, there’s a great article on Musicwood in the March 2014 issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, have a look: http://musicwoodthefilm.com/Press/Acoustic_Guitar_March2014-Musicwood.jpg
Stay tuned for more screenings, and international news…
Welcome to the new year! We have some exciting announcements for Musicwood. First off, we will be screening to the music community at the NAMM conference this January in Anaheim, CA. We’ve been to NAMM a number of times, and are really looking forward to this opportunity to connect with people who love music and musical instruments. We began the new year with the great news that we have won the EarthVision Environmental Film Award at this year’s Santa Cruz Film Festival! We’ve always loved Santa Cruz. We’re currently number 3 on New Releases on the digital platform Vudu, (we are now available in the US on iTunes) and we’re working hard to bring the film digitally to the rest of the world. We have our premiere in Australia coming up in February, keep checking our facebook and screenings page for more info.
