This past weekend we celebrated the final stages of completing our new film Almost There with a special sneak preview for friends, people in the film, and Kickstarter backers at Pierogifest, where - eight years ago to the day - filmmakers Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden first met their star, Peter Anton.
The film was wonderfully received by all who came to the historic Hoosier theater in Whiting, Indiana, with many of the subjects seeing the work for the very first time. Please read a recap of the day's highlights below, and view more photos here. Video will be coming soon!
Almost There has 10 days left to reach their $20,000 Kickstarter total, and they are "almost there..." Please support the film.
