Putting 2009 Into Perspective & Events in 2010


2009 has been a wonderful year for The Legend of Pancho Barnes.  Well, six months of it anyway! PanchoXmas2 We premiered the film at the NewFest Film Festival in Manhattan in June, and since that time we've done over a dozen events including the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, and screenings at NASA, the Arlington Air Show, the Planes of Fame Air Museum, the Celebration of Women in Aviation, the Flying M Ranch and of course, our special Los Angeles premiere screening at the Aero Theater.  Those of you who made it to that event definitely had a night to remember.

2010 looks like it will also be about as exciting as Pancho in her flying boots!  We'll kick off the year with a screening to benefit the KOCE-TV Foundation on January 9th in Mission Viejo, Ca (you can buy tickets on this website by clicking on the "Screenings" button).  We'll follow that with a Pasadena event on February 25th to benefit KOCE-TV and two wonderful local history organizations, Heritage Square and the Pasadena Museum of History (click on "Screenings" button).  There are several other events in California and beyond that we'll announce as the details fall into place.  And if you know of a venue that wants to have a screening — an air show, a museum, or another organization — contact us.  Want to help sponsor one of our screenings?  We're always looking for help!

All of this barnstorming should (knock on wood) lead up to a television broadcast sometime in mid-2010.  We do not yet have the details, but our show has been submitted into the public television review process and we hope to have an air date announcement in the very near future.  In fact, we're sort of hoping Santa puts it under our tree!
