Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena30@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Frank.

Juan, my name is Pamela Finney.  I am a member of the CFF team that is promoting the 2016 Sacramento International Film Festival. I am specifically assigned to the NorCal All Stars Pt. 2 on Apr. 29, the night that your film will be screening.  To help me promote this better, could you please go to the event page for this night --  http://californiafilm.net/events/norcal-all-stars-feat-timothy-busfield-s-one-smart-fellow -- and go to the comments area to post a promo picture for your film along with links to a trailer/clip/website, maybe a short synopsis, whatever you would like to communicate to potential viewers to encourage them to attend.  Also, if you do plan on attending, then please RSVP on this page.  Please note that this is the page to which we will be directing people to get more info and to order tickets, so the more info on this page the better.  Thank you for your time.  Pamela
