Migrating, Sabbaticals, and Philanthropy

Hey Fellow Film Addicts!

Someone tried telling us it was already July. What Liars!  Wait... Frizzle frazzle. It is July!!  
It looks like it's high time for some exclusive top level updates, peeps.

The Couch Fest Films base camp is moving our basecamp back to Seattle.  We have capped out the Internet data plans in all the cafes here in Reykjavik, Iceland. So, it's time to migrate our feisty base camp to another local.  While our scrappy team works from around the world, our top brass will be moving back to Seattle.

Couch Fest Films is seeking Philanthropy.  That's a fancy way of saying we are looking for more cashola.  Yep.  So, in preparation for thisyear's fest in 2014, we will be securing resources from deep-pocketed smarty pants who are wise enough to support our program of delivering award-winning films at cozy and unique locations around the world.  If you have any hot leads, send them our way.

Couch Fest Films will keep you posted.  We love sharing. So, yes, our press office in Seattle will keep you posted with calculated and classified leaks from our board members' meetings. For example, we have a pile of Couch Fest Films shirts we still want to sell, we will continue to post previous winning films as they come online, and we have ambitious plans for some crowd funding drives.  

So, cosmic chest thumps and we'll definitely be in touch! 

Hella sincerely,

Couch Fest Films Official Senior Press Officer
