It’s now less than three months until the Jaxon Film Fest. In fact, it’s only two months-sixteen days until the big day. The clock is ticking down. The pressure is mounting.
The venue–the Michigan Theatre, Jackson, Michigan has been chosen. It has been secured with a deposit for the rent. And though the venue owners seem slow to move, it should be pointed out that the festival will not be as scheduled on the theater’s calendar as four hours. Rather it will be a full day’s celebration of film and music. The festival will run from 11:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night. A full twelve hours of film, merriment and mirth.
Marketing has been planned. Announcements for the festival will be shortly heard on radio and television. We are sending press releases out to the numerous Jackson based radio stations, and we are working hard to arrange interviews, spots, etc. It will be seen in newspapers and magazines, from Lansing south to below the Ohio/Indiana state lines, from as far west as Kalamazoo/Battle Creek to Detroit. It will also appear as it has on every film related website, bulletin board, forum, etc., etc., etc., on the internet.
Watch for announcements as we look for sponsors, volunteers, and others.
Also watch as we announce the films we have selected to appear in this festival. They will run the gamut from animation, narrative shorts, documentaries, features, etc. If you have not yet gotten your films to us, we would encourage you to do so. Hurry. The deadline is quickly approaching and when it arrives, that’s it.
Tickets will be available online at etix.com and plainbrownticket.com. We advise you to purchase tickets early, rather than waiting.
We have a graphic artist with whom we are working shortly we will start distributing posters, handbills and flyers throughout Jackson and surrounding area.
Until the day of the festival we will be doing everything we can to promote this thing.
We expect to see you there. September 29th. Michigan Theatre, Jackson.
