God Help The Girl will be screening  at the Paramount Theatre in Austin this Saturday, March 15th, at 5pm.

(Note that it is possible to go to the screening without a badge or wristband from the festival.  If any seats remain, single-admission tickets will be sold for $10 starting 15 minutes before show time).

Stuart will also be discussing his work on ‘God Help The Girl’ earlier in the day at Austin Convention Centre (room 16AB) at 2pm.  For details click here

If you are heading to see the film, make sure you get along there in time to hear the simply charming  Barton Hills Choir, who will be performing about 15-10 minutes before the screening at 5:00PM.  They will be singing a mix of songs from the film and some Belle and Sebastian numbers.

The band have been invited by Sundance Film Festival to perform on Monday, January 20 at 9:30 p.m. at the Festival’s Music Café.  This will tie in splendidly with Stuart’s God Help The Girl, which sees its world premiere next week at the festival.

The concert is presented by Festival sponsor Airbnb and Sundance Institute, and the after-party and DJ set will be held at the Airbnb Haus.

We are delighted to be asked to play and are all very much looking forward to the Sundance experience.  See you there!
