We're All Going to the World's Fair will play New Directors/New Films at MoMA and Film at Lincoln Center. Such an honor to have the New York premiere at Film at Lincoln Center on Friday, April 30, 2021!
Jane Schoenbrun's We're All Going to the World's Fair premiered in the NEXT section at Sundance last month! I very happily worked on this project as associate producer, and provided the film titles, credits, and some of the artwork in the film.
It has already been featured on "Best of" lists at IndieWire, The Ringer, The Hollywood Reporter, and many other publications, and named one of the Top 10 Best Films at Sundance in a critics poll.
I don't often write, but sometimes I do so I thought I would compile some of this year's pieces for Screen Slate and Exclaim! here.

The interview is up now! https://www.thecherrypicks.com/articles/a-man-stole-her-film20-years-later-she-got-it-back-and-made-a-documentary-about-the-whole-saga

The Eyeslicer Halloween Special will have its premiere on Thursday, September 27th at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Season one showcased some of the best, most original shorts from American independent cinema today and the Eyeslicer Halloween Special, jam-packed with 12 “spooky” tales, does not disappoint. I was pleased as punch to not only illustrate the opening animated credits, but also the show poster (which will soon be a limited-edition VHS)! Some nice words from Indiewire: https://nitehawkcinema.com/williamsburg/movies/the-eyeslicer-halloween-special
