RINGERS Screens at Slamdance!

By TORn Staffer MrCere:

PARK CITY, UT – Officially, ‘RINGERS Lord of the Fans’ is now a released film!  Around Midnight the film screened for the film’s crew, 130 fans and about 20 journalists.  Some fans waited overnight in the very cold mountain air of Park City to enjoy the event with a line party.  Costumed fans were present to enjoy the film, a first-ever for the Slamdance Film Festival, now in its 11th year.

News stories, reviews and features about the film will invade the internet, television and newspapers all over the world in the next few days but there is no doubt that the fans present Friday loved the film. The screenings move to Salt Lake City for the next week, all of which are mostly sold out.  Count on plenty more news coverage over the next week!
