We are delighted to announce that “Where Did the Horny Toad Go?” will be premiering at the Arizona International Film Festival in Tucson, Arizona. The film is set to screen at The Screening Room in downtown Tucson on Sunday, April 15th at 2:00 P.M. and at the Oro Valley Library in Tucson on Thursday, April 19th at 6:00 P.M. We are excited to have the film played for an audience. This journey has been long, exciting and trying at times, but well worth it.
During the making of the film, Stefanie Leland and her crew spent four days at the Southwestern Research Station in the Chiricahua Mountains of Arizona with lead horned lizard researcher Wade C. Sherbrooke, Ph.D of Tucson, Arizona. We gained lots of valuable information on horned lizard behavior while visiting Sherbrooke at the station and we are looking forward to seeing Wade again during our stay in Tucson. Wade will be joining us at the premiere and we will all be available for the question and answers session following the Sunday screening.
We have been asked to participate in a number of activities while in Tucson, such as a large fair called 2nd Saturdays Downtown. The goal of this fair is to use art and entertainment to revitalize downtown Tucson, and from what we are hearing, it has been very successful. We have also been asked to participate in the Festival-in-the-Schools program in which filmmakers are asked to visit Tucson schools and talk about filmmaking.
