People have been asking me how they can get my short film Coffee and Pie. Well I’m very pleased to announce that after countless festivals, several awards, and some really great nominations—like the 2012 Iris Prize—Coffee and Pie is now available to watch on mobile devices via the mobile app Worldwide Movie Theater.
Coffee and Pie is an anti-romantic comedy—a funny look at the end of a relationship that takes a unique turn. The film has strong and hilarious performances by Amy Seimetz, Sophia Takal, and Karen Chamberlain. I may be a bit partial, but I think it’s a must-watch short film.
A new way to watch short films
The Worldwide mobile app is also a pretty cool way to watch movies on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can download the free app (iOS version | Android version) and use it to preview the first few minutes of any of the films.
To watch a film you simply pay $1.99 for each “time zone” (Western, Mountain, Central, Eastern) and you can watch all the films in that time zone group. That’s over 20 films you can watch in the Eastern time zone for less than two bucks. The Western time zone has seven. So that’s a lot of bang for your two bucks!
To watch Coffee and Pie, go to Box Office and buy the Western shorts. That opens up the list of shorts where you’ll find Coffee and Pie. While you’re there, please ‘Like’ the film and leave a comment if you would!
There is a contest element to the app and the directors of the four short films that get the most Likes in the Box Office area (not the Preview area—although getting likes there is also nice!) wins some industry exposure and meetings to help advance their filmmaking careers. It would be great to win that, so if you don’t mind hitting that thumbs up button for your old pal, that would be very nice.
