RECAP: The 10th Anniversary Reunion Screening & Kickstarter Launch!08/13/2013
What a perfect way to launch our first ever KICKSTARTER
campaign! And it all went down last Friday, August 9 at the Century 20 Daly City theater! Our LUMPIA lovers definitely represented, selling out our 10th Anniversary hometown screening of the "ultimate home made movie". Even Daly City Mayor Ray Buenaventura
showed up to watch the movie for the first time!
After the screening, Hawaii International Film Festival Programming DirectorANDERSON LE
moderated the Q & A session that reunited most of the original cast & crew. It was just awesome to see our cast light up and witness how much adoration there still is for their film. In all our years screening this movie, we've never done anything like this before - and the fact that the sold out crowd STAYED to hear us talk and reflect... it was INSPIRING
This segment was taped and will be included in the 10th Anniversary remastered DVD of LUMPIA this holiday season. Anyone who pledges at least $50+
will get one!
And afterwards, the LUMPIA cast led the BIGGEST #LUMPIABomb yet!!!
