Salmon Fishing in the Yemen Advanced Screening in Arizona

According to sources on IMDb and Twitter, there seems to be an advanced screening of the movie tonight in Glendale, Arizona, at the AMC Arrowhead theater.  It also seems that they might be considering a name change to "Salmon Fishing in the Desert."  We'll have to wait and see how it tests, I suppose!

Steve Screens in LA for Oscar Consideration

This past week, Steve was screened on three consecutive days for a paying audience, in a Los Angeles theater, in accordance with rules for Oscar consideration.

This reviewer said, of the 12 shorts shown, that Steve was one of her favorites!

"Out of the 12 shorts shown, Steve with Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Keira Knightly (Pride and Prejudice) was one of the highlights. The story follows a middle-age man, who regularly visits his neighbors for very odd reasons with surprising twists."

Wouldn't it be fantastic to see the film nominated for an Academy Award??
