Sixteen Forty-Nine was the hit of the Beloit International Film Festival! Word is that over 600 people showed up to help break the record for the biggest crowd ever at the festival on its Friday night premiere at the Eclipse Center in Beloit. Thanks to everyone who came out and made this such a fantastic night.

Next, we’re ramping up for our next fundraiser, the car raffle! Two more places have volunteered to sell tickets for us: 27 West and Smydon Chevrolet. Check the car raffle page for the full list.

Meanwhile, we’ve started shipping out copies of the Sixteen Forty-Nine DVD. If you’d like to buy a copy of the film for yourself, your office, your local library, or your school — or anywhere else — it’s only $16.49, plus shipping and handling.

Many thanks to everyone in Rock County for the outpouring of support you’ve given Project 16:49 over the past few months. We truly appreciate it!
