We knew it for awhile but had to keep it a secret until the whole festival program was announced.

So here it goes. Silicone Soul will screen at DOCNYC on November 10, 2018 (9:15pm, IFC Center)! We are over the moon and very grateful to the team behind Silicone Soul and our Kickstarter supporters.


BendFilm Fest

BendFilm Festival happened so quickly but we had tons of fun. Silicone Soul screened In Competition and also we had the pleasure of screening the film in an very cool cinema (look at those seats!)

We haven’t updated in awhile but that’s only because we had a lot of wonderful things happening for Silicone Soul! Brace yourself for a bundle of updates!

At Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, Silicone Soul screened In Competition (Oct.5 & Oct.6, 2018) and director Melody Gilbert had a great time being there for the Q&As. Our documentary screened together with a wonderful short documentary, Beneath the Ink by Cy Dodson, we crossed paths before at festivals and I am sure we will continue to do so.

Here are some photos from our time at CDFF:

BEST OF FEST at MSPIFF and SOLD OUT screenings

The two SILICONE SOUL screenings (April 21, April 22) at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival have been extra special because most of the team members (Miles Painter- editor, Charlie McCarron - composer, Jesse Marks - sound mix, Beth Peloff & John Akre - animation) that worked on the documentary live there including our director, Melody Gilbert. Even our cinematographer, Igor Myakotin, who is based in NYC flew in for the screenings. The spirits were high, the screenings SOLD out, the Q&A's were fantastic, the audience receptive and open minded, director Melody Gilbert gave a TV interview for KARE 11   (see it bellow) and we were included in the BEST OF FEST list, getting the chance to screen SILICONE SOUL one more time (May 2). In short, we had the greatest time! 




REACTIONS: Latest rough cut screening!

Our latest rough cut screening has been a success and we received a lot of positive feedback from our viewers. WATCH this short (:30 secs)  video of reactions to a recent rough cut screening and then read some more of the feedback  down below:

This is a very, very, very thought-provoking film.”

“I couldn’t imagine how you could possibly make me care about these people. And you did.”

“You could have so easily mocked, but you chose to tell their story with compassion.”

”I thought this movie was going to be about sex dolls, but it’s actually about relationships and where we are as humans today. Thank you for this film that will have me thinking about this subject for days.”

“All of the characters are extremely interesting.”

“The way you get these folks to open up and show their genuine love for their synthetic partners was awesome.
