The Purgatory House Chronicles -January 2007

January 2007

The big day has finally arrived! After years of hard work, 22 film festivals, 11 awards, 2 Prism Nominations, 7 appearances on "Best Films of the Year" lists by critics and amazing reviews, PURGATORY HOUSE is available in video stores all around the country including Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, Netflix, Amazon and all your favorite local stores! You can also order directly from our website for a great discount. Amazing things continue to happen, and I am so thankful for everyone's support of our little movie. The Mass Bay Film Festival gave PURGATORY HOUSE an encore screening as part of their "Best of the Fest" series this month, and PH brought in the New Year by screening at Zen Sushi on New Year's Eve. The Numbers Movie Review Site is giving away a signed PURGATORY HOUSE DVD as a prize for their contest (pretty cool!), and PH received an "Honorable Mention" in the Fylmz contest. (We were not eligible to be a semi-finalist, since we already have a distribution deal). It was fun to see the Washington Post list PH on their list of "Notable DVDs being released this Tuesday".

I wanted to send out one final, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped support this movie. It's hard to believe that our journey together began over 5 years ago! I think one of the biggest lessons I've learned is that when you have no money, it takes a long time! But we did it, at last....Now, this little film may have the opportunity to make it's way into the hands of parents and teens across the country, and open up doors of communication, and maybe even save lives. I will never forget the part that each of you has played in making this a reality. Thank you for believing in me and Celeste. Thank you for lending your talents, your hearts and your time to project that was so dear to my heart. This could not have happened without each and every one of you, and I will be forever grateful. With much love and gratitude.
