BREAKING NEWS: my film will be presented by NYWIFT!

Spring is here and I have some really exciting news!

Drum roles please…

Wildflower has been chosen by the New York Women in Film and TV’s for their immigrant stories screening series. NYWIFT is a well-respected organization that stands for women filmmakers and I feel beyond honored that Wildflower is chosen to their program.

We will have our special preview screening on May 17th at the Museum of the Moving Image at 7pm, followed by Q&A and reception. I’d love to celebrate with all of you. Please reserve a free seat by clicking here and do it ASAP since the seating is limited and it’s a popular series.

As you know, I’ve worked on this film for a year and it’s beyond exciting to have a first screening presented by such a wonderful organization. I feel tremendous gratitude toward my 43 member cast and crew, 13 sponsors, 56 Indiegogo supporters, friends & family and everyone that has been rooting for Wildflower’s with kind wishes and thoughts. Thank You!

I can’t wait to celebrate together! See you at a screening!

With gratitude,
Kristi

“Wildflower” Behind-The-Scenes VIDEO And Kalevala Concert!

The weather in New York is just like my life… unexpected! 

The first two months of 2018 have been extremely exciting for me. Lots of new projects, performances and great surprises. 

I’m thrilled to share my short film “Wildflower” behind the scenes video (click on the pic). This promo video is edited by Gergely Laszlo-Zwickl of Monoplane Movie Trailer Production from Hungary, who I found after posting an ad to Mandy.com. It’s great to be able to locate talent, having not ever met the person, and absolutely love their work! 

Another exciting project:  I’m co-organizing and also performing in “Kalevala the Musical” concert at the Scandinavia House this coming Monday. It’s a beautiful story based on the Finnish epic, Kalevala, and has been set to an ethereal yet powerful pop, folk and world music score written by the very talented Johanna Telander. If Once, Lord of the Rings and Waitress were juxtaposed in to one musical, Kalevala would be the product. I’m thrilled to let you know that we’ve been featured on Broadwayworld.com several times. CLICK HERE to find out more! 

Last but not least, I ran a successful Crowdfunding Campaign for Wildflower. Thank you everyone for your kindness and support. I have an outstanding lineup of people who are working on post production and I couldn’t have done this without your support!

I would also love to hear how you’re doing if you have the time to write!

My first Crowdfunding Campaign!

I hope the holiday season is treating you well and you find time to spend with friends and family! As some of you know, I have been working on a short film and I hope you will be a part of my journey to produce a film that means the world to me.

Here’s a link to my Crowdfunding campaign! I am excited to share what I have put my heart and soul in to making this film a reality and I  hope you enjoy it.

A special thank you to my New York based artists friends Eleri Ever, Jaanika Peerna, Kristiana Pärn and Uno Habakukk who’ve donated their beautiful artwork, which you could own.

Valev Laube, Dena Tyler and my husband Jonathan – thank you for helping me create an exciting campaign!

If you can support the film financially, wonderful. If you are not in a position to do so, spreading the word means just as much! Tell your friends and family about our “Wildflower” campaign. It could be word-of-mouth, sharing the camping on social media, emailing, texting or any other creative ways you feel comfortable sharing.

Happy Holidays and thank you for taking your time to read this very special newsletter!
