International premiére at Fantastic Fest
Tonight we present our film for an international audience for the very first time! “Norwegian Ninja” is part of this year’s line-up at Fantastic Fest in Austin, the largest genre film festival in the US, “specializing in sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world.”
We’re competing in the Next Wave section, highlighting fresh directors and films from all over the world, as well as participating in a special Norwegian Focus, that naturally comprises a big viking themed party on a boat next week…
The screening tonight will be held in the legendary Alamo Drafthouse cinema here in Austin, which I personally have wanted to visit for years. We simply can’t think of a better venue or festival to begin presenting the film internationally.
Director Thomas and myself have arrived in Austin now and are about to go to the Alamo and pick up our festival accreditation etc. This will be a lot of fun! We’ll try to report back how things went down later.
