Hey, Boston! DIMENSIONS is at SF Film Festival

If you could revisit your childhood...which moment would you choose? 


This is the premise of the independent film, Dimensions. It will be shown as the Closing Film for the Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival on Saturday February 18th. If you are anywhere near the Boston area, you couldn't do better than to spend the evening watching this intriguing film.

Dimensions is a 1920s/30s sci-fi drama and revolves around a scientist's obsession with going back in time, to revisit a moment from his childhood. It stars Camilla Rutherford (Gosford Park, Rome) and Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Harry Potter and the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Inbetweeners).




I normally don't plug unsolicited requests on this blog, but the producer, Ant Neely sent me such a nice press kit and asked so graciously, I couldn't resist. This came on the heels of another request from someone who wanted me to plug his book without so much as a please or thank you. The approach of these people were light years apart. I promptly deleted the book request on account of bad manners.

Mr. Neely not only sent me a personally addressed letter, but he recognized that I was in Texas, which meant he took the time to research my blog. He attached all the information I needed and more. His letter was personal, warm and heartfelt. He made me believe that anyone who could take this much care with a letter would be even more amazing with his film.

So I would like you to do me a favor. I don't know Mr. Neely from Adam, but I have faith in his project and a deep admiration for the dedication and sacrifice he and his wife (Sloane U'Ren) made to produce this film. As a favor to me, would you Tweet this post, or post the video (and the Boston film festival date) on Facebook sometime this week?

If you're an indie author, you already know how hard it is to catch a break. Let's give Dimensions that break and pass the word around. It's just good Karma.

Thanks guys. Let's help them out.

Oh cool! I will tweet!
I love Boston. Wish I was there for the festival.

Angelina Rain said...

Sounds like a good movie, I want to see it. I'll FB about it sometime this week.

Raelyn Barclay said...

I saw Henry Lloyd-Hughes talking about this somewhere fairly recently. I joined it mid-interview so missed the name of the movie. Cool. Love the premise of this. I'm nowhere near Boston so I hope I'll be able to watch it :)

I'll definitely help spread the word!

Sarah Ahiers said...

Man, i wish i was in boston. I totally want to see that movie

Maria Zannini said...

Jennifer: Boston is on my bucket list of travel destinations. Wish it was this weekend.

Angelina: Thanks, hon.

Raelyn: If it's well-received, there's a good chance the rest of us will catch it.

Sarah: I love the premise too. Right up my alley.

Marianne Arkins said...

Hey ... I'm 45 mins from Boston. Will put it on my FB page since most of my IRL friends live near here.

Ant Neely said...

Thank you all so much for your kind words and support! Sloane and I are just overwhelmed at how nice people have been, and we can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate it.

Maria Zannini said...

Marianne: I didn't realize you were that close to Boston. Thanks for sharing!

Ant: Glad to do it. I was very impressed with everything I saw so far. All the best!

Ellie Garratt said...

Just tweeted!

Maria Zannini said...

Ellie: Thank you, Ellie!

Barbara Ann Wright said...

That's very kind of you. As for the no please or thank you request, I'm glad you turned them down. That's just rude.

Shelley Munro said...

It sounds like an interesting project. It's debateable about whether I'd like to return to childhood though. Maybe late teens/early twenties...

Maria Zannini said...

Barbara: You'd be surprised how many requests I get a week. I turn most of them down.

Shelley: Oh, I KNOW I wouldn't want to go back to my childhood. LOL. I hated my childhood. Not for any bad reasons. I was just anxious to explore the world.

Angela Brown said...

I enjoyed the trailer. Will definitely do a shout out on my blog.

Shirley Wells said...

I love the premise of Dimensions. Sounds great!

It amazes me that people expect you to do their advertising for them and can't even bother with a please or thank you. Grr. Glad you deleted that one!

I'm off to tweet this right now.

Maria Zannini said...

Angela: Thank you, sweetie.

Shirley: Thanks, Shirley. Sadly, most of the requests I get have self-entitlement written all over them.

Nadja Notariani said...

My son and I just watched the teaser trailer - and we're in...too bad we're not near Boston! I'll be watching for this on NetFlix.

Southpaw said...

Oooo, it sounds so cool. Both the movie AND the festival!

Melissa McClone said...

I'm on the other side of the country so I hope this gets a national release at some point!

Misha Gericke said...

Done. :-)

Maria Zannini said...

Sorry I was out of internet range most of yesterday.

Nadja: I think it's one of those films that is going to make it. It has that Big Idea feel to it.

Southpaw: I've never been to a film festival. But I'm going to keep an eye on events in Texas.

Melissa: At least when it releases nationally, we'll all have a head's up.

Misha: Thank you!
