I Am Big Bird Premiere and Screenings Coming Soon

I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story has been finished for awhile now, and last month we were so busy covering Muppets Most Wanted that we missed the huge news of the film’s premiere date and location! I Am Big Bird will have it’s World Premiere at Hot Docs, the Canadian International Film Festival at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema on April 27th! The World Premiere will feature appearances from the entire filmmaking crew and Caroll Spinney himself. For more information, visit the Hot Docs website.

There will be four other screenings of I Am Big Bird at Hot Docs on April 28th, April 30th, May 1st, and May 4th. If you’re in the area or able to head there, this is a can’t-miss opportunity to see the film well before its full release. Again, see the Hot Docs website for more information on tickets and locations.

The film will have its debut in the US on Saturday, May 3rd at the Montclair Film Festival in Montclair, New Jersey. Again, Caroll Spinney WILL be in attendance, so this is another can’t-miss opportunity for those on the East Coast in the New York/New Jersey area. There are sure to be even more screenings of I Am Big Bird coming in the near future as the film expands to other festivals and (hopefully) into a wider, albeit still limited, release. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available about where you can see I Am Big Bird!
