Hard to believe it's been over a month since Rich Kids World Premiered at the Houston Latino Film festival! Again, we'd like to give a big thanks to the organizers and crew-- all of whom were great, hospitable, and kind. Big shout out to Pedro Rivas for discussing the film on Houston Public Media and KHOU.
To a say it was a tremendous experience would be an understatement. For the actors and crew, the festival screening was their first time ever viewing the film. For Laura and the production team, it was our first time watching the movie with a full audience in a theater. So many emotions! It validated all the hard work that had been put in by all those who soldiered on so diligently during all stages of the process. Also, the premiere ushered in the next phase of the project-- getting Rich Kids out into the world!
The screening was followed by an audience Q&A and discussion which focused on the realization of the project, how we got such wonderful actors, and the representation of Latinos in film today.
Again, thanks to all involved. We look forward at bringing Rich Kids back to Texas in the near future.

We've chosen the official poster. Thank you to Creative Allies for working with us to bring this beautiful image to the world. We are grateful to all the designers who participated in the contest, there were many designs we loved and it was very difficult to settle on just one!
Thank you to Luisf13o for creating the winning design. We chose this piece because we felt it was a perfect representation of Rich Kids. The image he chose sums up the themes in the film, and creates an element of danger and emotion that grabs a viewer's interest. The design is very strong, the title is clear and easy to read. We love the letter C encircling his face, bringing focus to his longing expression. We love the lo-fi feeling to the design. We love how the swimming pool, which is an important element of the story, is still reflected in the design by using the color blue - a brilliant choice. The design really pops, whether it’s on a big poster, or a small icon on iTunes. We hope you like it as much as we do!
Pedro Rivas of the Houston Latino Film Festival will be on Houston Matters, an NPR segment, today Wednesday March 21st at 12:50pm CST. Take a listen as they've said they will be talking about the Rich Kids Premiere on March 24th!

Thanks to Don Maines of the Houston Chronicle for writing a great article about us:
We sent actors Michelle Magallon and Ulysses Montoya along with producer Eddie Rodriguez to Univision's studios in Houston earlier this week. They had a great time and the segment will air our entire trailer! This is a nationwide spot about independent films and we couldn't be more excited to get this kind of publicity!
We are thrilled to announce that the official Rich Kids World Premiere is going to be 11am on Saturday March 24th, 2018 at the Houston Latino Film Festival
