BLASTOFF (Best Los Angeles Screenplay Theme-music and Original Films Festival) congratulates first-time Indie film producer, Brandon Keeton, and Director Luke Covert, on their recent successes.  They have secured a letter of intent from Showtown American Films to release their film, “Turbo Cola”, a BLASTOFF award-winner, into 350 – 500 theatersassociated with the Independent Theater Owners Assn., all across the USA.

Giant Pictures is handling NorthAmerican distribution. Cardinal XD, a premiere worldwide film sales, distribution and production company, is handling international distribution, including streaming of the film on certain airlines.

BLASTOFF is known to go the extra mile to assist submitters in furthering their careers.  In that vein the festival has now teamed up with two remarkable companies, Filmhub and Filmocracy, in giving submitters (writers, filmmakers, composers, and other creatives) access to dozens of high-octane decision makers from all around the world.

Access is provided via a Film Market whichallows creatives direct one-on-one online access to pitch projects to, amongst others, distributors, producers, film executives, agents, and managers.  Winning projects become eligible for free tickets to attend the Market.  It’s an incredible opportunity for up-and-coming Indie filmmakers, who, traditionally, simply cannot compete in the premiere market events.

More congratulations are due toanother BLASTOFF award-winner, Mathew Tretola, creator and producer of the wonderfully original animated comedy series, “Hovelton.”   Mathew will be pitching the series at the upcoming Film Market, to be held on October 07, 2022.We wish Mathew every success.
