This is no longer advertizing. This is a warning/public-service announcement to those people who were involved or are close firends of people involved who happen to live in the Okanagan and who want to be in attendance at the Premiere of Beast of Bottomless Lake in Kelowna at the Okanagan International Film Festival next week - July 21st.
We've done the math. There are already less than 100 seats left that we are aware of - indeed if the people who have said to us that they were going to get advance tickets have done so then there are less than 70 seats left.... but we aren't actually positive those people have got their tickets yet.
If I were to open up my file of people in the Okanagan who worked on this film the list would be longer than 70 names - and that doesn't include any friends or guests that they'd bring.
Do you see what I'm saying?
Get your tickets now. Do not wait to get them the night of the show.
According to the festival website, tickets are only available through the Paramount Theatre Box Office.
The festival organizers have said that the Okanagan Film Festival has never had a sold out show. Clearly the number of people who worked on the film who would want to see it weren't factored into their plans. Who knows - maybe we will come out the other side of this looking a little naive, but we think that this is not only going to be their first sell-out, but that there is going to be a BIG demand for tickets above and beyond their expectations as based on the venue size.
So, don't get screwed out of your chance to be there for the premiere. We are working hard to make this a special night for everyone in attendance.
