I received the news tonight from the Wisconsin Scholastic Chess Federation:
Brooklyn Castle will have its national broadcast premiere on October 7, at 10pm on PBS’s award winning POV series. As first time filmmakers, it is truly an honor to have our film be part of this outstanding documentary series, television's longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. You can check your local PBS listings here to find out what time the film is airing in your city. And if you’re interested in hosting a premiere party or organizing a free public screening in your community you can download a screening toolkit, a movie poster, flyers and email reminders here – everything you need to keep the conversation about Brooklyn Castle going strong. Please tell your friends, family, and colleagues who have not yet seen the film to mark their calendars and to set their DVR’s for October 7, at 10pm! More.
Awesome! I will be glued to my t.v. to watch this film.
