I never thought I’d say this, but this Hare has finally caught up with the Tortoise and finished the race! After more than 8 years in the making, Rabbit Fever is finally having its World Premiere at the 2010 Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis!
The goal of the Heartland Film Festival is to honor “beautifully made films that celebrate the positive aspects of life.” Seeing as how Rabbit Fever is a very positive, family-oriented film, it truly is a perfect fit for the festival. Also, our last stop when filming Rabbit Fever was at the ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association) National Convention in Indy back in 2005. So, going back to premiere Rabbit Fever there will symbolically bring everything full circle, especially for the teens in the film who are now in the process of graduating college!
Kudos to Scott, Jeff, Chris and Sara at Remedy Editorial and Colorist Genius Gary Coates who have been a tremendous help in getting the film prime for theatrical exhibition (see photos below). Thanks to them, Rabbit Fever will be projected digitally in all its mastered glory on HDCam at the AMC Castleton Square 14 in Indianapolis on Sunday, October 17th at 5:30pm. Advance tickets and additional screening times are available by clicking here.
Previous Heartland award winner recipients include: Steven Spielberg, Dakota Fanning, Ellen Burstyn and Rob Reiner and films such as Blindside and Dreamer.
