Thanks to everyone for all of the support during the multi-year process that making this film has been! I am genuinely excited to share this film with all of you. After the premier at the MFF, the film will be available in some format to a wider audience - stay tuned!
On The Cusp, Off The Cuff is complete! I submitted it to the SXSW Film Festival today. I’ll find out by February 8th if it is selected. I’ll be submitting to a few other festivals as well. Once the festival business is done, I’ll be able to have it online for viewing in some capacity.
Special preview screening of On The Cusp, Off The Cuff this Wednesday 6/27 at 6pm at UCBeast (Avenue A and 3rd Street) - part of the Del Close Marathon festivities.
Make reservations here.
OTCOTC is still a work in progress, so if you’re in NYC and able to make it I’d appreciate any feedback or thoughts.
