STARBUCKING To Screen In Seattle!

I just got word that STARBUCKING has been accepted to screen at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival! The festival is the first weekend in June. Details to follow.

Film Festival Recap; Review

The Omaha Festival was great! Made some great contacts and had fun. The crowds were a little thin but the audience for STARBUCKING was fair. It was very well recieved!

The Sonoma Valley Film Festival was fantastic! STARBUCKING played to a sold out crowd opening night and a nearly full audience on Saturday morning. Comments were extremely positive!

One bay area critic called Starbucking one of the few "great" films at Sonoma! Here's the review:

STARBUCKING At least as entertaining as Supersize Me without its didactic quality, this odyssey with a guy whose goal in life is to sample all of the 1600 or so Starbucks worldwide is 21st century road trip film par excellence as well as a wacky Zen spiritual journey we are invited to participate in up close and almost too personally! Its bright and wild protagonist is a winner, as are the insights and outlooks he experiences throughout this caffeine-fueled documentary.

STARBUCKING played here on Saturday. Awesome venue!

Here's the welcome basket I found waiting for me in the hotel room. Fancy!

The crowd begins to line up before the show on opening night.

Leaving for Sonoma Valley Film Fest

I fly out tomorrow for the Sonoma Valley Film Festival. STARBUCKING shows Thursday night at 6:30PM Saturday at 10AM. Please come if you can! First 3 people to ask me for a t-shirt at the fest get one free! An area wine critic has selected the perfect wine for STARBUCING:
"'Starbucking. Opening-night at the lounge,'" I read. "'A caffeine-fueled young man sets out to visit every Starbucks on the planet.'"

"This is all about Cab," says Sawyer. "Cabernet and the flavor of coffee, what we would call mocha, is a very common term used with the styles of Cabernet that are used with a lot of toasty oak."
