I did some looking around online today to see if I could find more information about 'Of Monster And Men' not showing at the Tribeca Film Festival this year.
I posted a comment from a person that was left at the fan page of FB/FB and a few people questioned the validity of the comment. The concerns are not unfounded and I encourage everyone to question everything.
I don't have a Facebook account, so I was not able to follow up with the original poster of the comment and I received no emails to back up the story. Fortunately a few people at the BFF took it upon themselves to investigate further.
One member had this to say:
"I called up minnow films yesterday and asked for the release date for "Of Monsters and Men", the receptionist told me it is still a working title and not completed yet. There is no release date as of yet that she knows of and she knows of no film festivals it would premiere at, as of yet. I asked if the title has been changed to "Shooting Bigfoot" and she said she knows about the possibility of a change, but no official change had been made to the title as of yet. ( lots of as of yet's ) I asked her if a bigfoot was shot in this movie, she paused ( lol ) and said she doesn't know what all is in the film but I can email minnow films if I have anymore questions. ( she probably thought, oh boy I have a loon on the line haha )"
Another member with a connection added this:
"You did... and I was at a loss as to how I was going to find out if this was, in fact, what you said it was. I asked a friend of mine who is a writer in the UK, if he knew anyone who could do me a favor and dig out some info for this Minnow film. It pays to make friends in this world because he writes for a couple of news publications in the UK, and he offered to dig up whatever he could find about a Minnow film under both titles. This afternoon I got a message from him. He was able to confirm what is now on Racer X's page about the film and it's subject."
A few pages later in the thread:
"UpDate: I finally was able to Reach Minnow films and spoke with the office manager 'Billy' (female nickname she told me). After being on hold a short while she confirmed the film (Of monsters and men) was 'not' entered or released into the united states (couldnt tell me why) and will be released on the BBC networks and their Co affiliates early this year. She wasnt able to confirm exact dates but was willing to forward the message to her production office, which she did. Hopefully she will get this information soon. I have a call back date scheduled in order"
On Tuesday, March 5/13 Freezer Boy put up a post responding to the news 'Of Monster And Men' will not show at Tribeca.
"Many people have asked me about the Tribeca Film Festival. I have no connection with Minow Films other than me being in the film. I have only relayed information. They have been many unconfirmed reports that shooting big bigfoot will not be in Tribeca. If this is the case. ..oh well not in my control. If you must know very little of anything is in my control."
Rick Dyer is all of a sudden not in control? Did Hell freeze over? Rick has been spewing this particular lie for a long time now. He said the documentary would be at the festival, anybody who has listened to Dyer knows this for a FACT. Rick didn't hum and haw, or say "maybe", or "not sure". He was absolutely positive on this one, just like he was with the CNN interview that never happened.
I swear to whatever one swears to that Rick Dyer has the shortest term memory of any human alive.......or he's lying. I'll go with the latter.
On Feb. 10/13 Mr. Fridgidaire (I am borrowing that name) said this:
How could Rick say the documentary by Minnow Films was going to show at the Tribeca Film Festival when the Documentary was NOT submitted in the first place? How can a rational person explain away this glaring fact?
Before I go, I would like to leave you with this. According to some people 'Of Monsters And Men' may have another title of 'Shooting Bigfoot'. I think some people forgot to see if the name had already been taken.
