We were thrilled with the enthusiastic audience reaction to Mad City Chickens during the recent screening at the Wisconsin Film Festival.
However, standing in the back of the room, we noticed a couple secondary pieces that didn’t quite work as we’d envisioned. (There’s nothing like a public screening to help iron out the kinks.) So we’ve spent the last two weeks re-editing those segments to bring them up to par with the rest of the film.
Word of the film is getting out! We’ve been contacted by a Los Angeles Producer Rep who might be interested in assisting us in the film’s distribution. And in the meantime, Chickens continues to get invites from backyard poultry groups from across the U.S. and Canada. From Nova Scotia to British Columbia and Boston to San Francisco, people are looking for filmic support in their quest to keep chickens in the city, support that we’d gladly give.
However and unfortunately, some of the major film festivals have strict restrictions on where and how many times a film can screen before they get it. So at the moment, we are limited on our public showings until we hear back from these top festivals. But rest assured, we’re planning on Mad City Chickens screening from coast-to-coast!
