 SAMUEL GOLDWYN FILMS TO DISTRIBUTE BYRD MCDONALD’S STEAMPUNK DOC “VINTAGE TOMORROWS” WORLDWIDE

SCREENMANCER STEAMPUNK ALERT: (Los Angeles—May 17, 2016) Coming off the coattails of screening at the Steampunk World’s Fair and heading into screenings at Clockwork Alchemy and the Seattle International Film Festival, Samuel Goldwyn Films announced today that the company has acquired Worldwide rights to VINTAGE TOMORROWS, a documentary film that investigates the trajectory of the constantly changing steampunk movement.  VINTAGE TOMORROWS began its festival journey at San Diego ComicCon in 2015 and will be released globally a year later July 19, 2016 on VOD and digital by Samuel Goldwyn Films.  The film is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. GoldwynlogoAccording to Peter Goldwyn of Samuel Goldwyn Films: “We live in a world of mass-produced product yet everyone is looking for individuality.  VINTAGE TOMORROWS showcases uniqueness of character and creativity in a fascinating world that brings the past as well as the future together in a refreshing and entertaining format.”

Filmmaker Byrd McDonald stated:  “Our documentary VINTAGE TOMORROWS showcases the amazing minds and artistic creations of dozens of individuals in the steampunk community.  We are overjoyed to be partnering with an indie-doc champion like Samuel Goldwyn Films.  Their expertise in distribution will help bring this vital and relevant cultural movement to a global audience.”

VINTAGE TOMORROWS examines the Steampunk movement’s explosive growth, origins, and cultural significance, from its sci-fi beginnings into an aesthetic and DIY movement that influences art, fashion, design and music globally.  Through in-depth interviews with the writers and artists credited with galvanizing the movement and the cultural historians and social scientists investigating the phenomenon, VINTAGE TOMORROWS poses the fundamental question: What does Steampunk tell us about history, community and our complicated relationship with technology?

The movie includes a prominent collection of Steampunk’s pioneering voices, including writers William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, China Miéville, Cherie Priest, Gail Carriger; graphic novelists Paul Guignon and Anina Bennett, musicians Abney Park and Erica “Unwoman” Mulkey, artist/maker Shannon O’Hare and the Neverwas Haul gang, and over 20 other denizens of the subculture.

VINTAGE TOMORROWS is directed by Byrd McDonald and produced by McDonald, Alan Winston, and Sean Hutchinson.
