MISSING IN ACTION IN ACTION AT THE 25TH ANNUAL IFP
SINGLED OUT BY AN IMPORTANT DISTRIBUTOR
At the end of September Molly and Jason spent an amazing week
at the Independent Feature Project (IFP) Market in NYC. During
the Market they screened a sample of Missing in Action
at the Angelica Cinema and pitched the project to great response.
Molly's mother and one of the film's subjects,
showed up at the screening incognito. Above, mother and daughter

poster, designed by Robin Rosenthal.
The IFP Market brings together selected filmmakers from across
the country with agents, financiers, distributors, programmers,
broadcasters, suppliers, and others in the industry. It's
the only market in the U.S. where independent filmmakers can
present new film and television work-in-development directly
to the film industry. For the film industry, it's a crucial
occasion to see and meet fresh talent and a place to discover
new films before they go on the film festival circuit.
Gary Crowdus, President of Distribution at The Cinema Guild,
was particularly enthusiastic after our IFP screening and immediately
sent us a letter expressing serious interest in Missing
"I'm writing to let you know how very much
we enjoyed the work-in-progress....You've clearly done some
serious research on the project, including filming some marvelous
interviews, which at long last shed light on the unsung women
who pioneered in behind-the-scenes creative roles during TV's
'golden age.' Missing in Action is thus sure to become
an important corrective to the more traditional histories
of the early years of television in America. In our professional
estimation, your film should have excellent distribution potential
in a number of key markets..."
This ringing endorsement is, of course, thrilling for us and important for
Missing in Action. For thirty years, The Cinema Guild
has been one of America's leading distributors of documentary
and fiction films.
