Last Friday and Saturday “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” screened in festivals in Cleveland and New York City respectively (more on that in a-soon-to-be-posted blog piece), but Wednesday just said “hold my beer”, because on Wednesday, August 10th, you can attend screenings of my musical short film Edgar Allan Poe adaptation in both Kolkata, India, and Nyack, NY, just across the Hudson river from the Bronx.

The Kolkata screening is sponsored by the Royal Society of Television and Motion Picture Awards (who gave the film an Outstanding Achievement Award) and will take place 10:30am at the Rotary Sadan (full address is above). It will the second screening for “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” in Kolkata to date.

The Nyack screening is part of the Nyack International Film Festival currently taking place at the Hotel Nyack JdV by Hyatt 400 High Ave. “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” will screen at 9pm.

Ed and I will be present at one of the two screenings. I’ll leave it to you to guess which.
