Great news! Inside the Box will premiere officially in Spain during the 58th edition of the International Film Festival of Valladolid (Seminci) that will be held between 19 and 26 October 2013.
Inside the Box at 58 Seminci.
The suspense drama short directed by David Martin Porras, starring Wilson Bethel, Summer Glau and Regina King has been selected with seven other shorts in the 'The Spanish Short Night' category.
Inside the Box is going to be screened at film festivals, and hopefully all fans will be able to see it when it will be available by VOD and DVD at a date to be determined. The producers are working hard to send the movie to all the festivals around the world, which means there's a chance it will be screened at a festival in your area. Of course we will keep you updated on the dates and locations of the screenings, so stay tuned!
The short was released a few days ago, when early donators received a link to watch the movie online. As one of the happy few, I can confirm that Inside the Box manages to deliver a strong message about HIV criminalization, whilst captivating the audience with unexpected turn of events. It is a great way to showcase Summer Glau's talents well, to reach to a new audience and ultimately will help with her career.
If you haven't, check out the extended behind the scenes video released a few weeks ago. It contains new images from the cast and crew and will give you a good idea of all the work the whole team put into this film.
The Valladolid International Film Festival is one of the oldest and most consolidated in the whole of Europe. Since it began in 1956, the Valladolid International Film Festival has introduced to Spain directors and cinematography which were previously unknown there. Spanish audiences became acquainted with names such as Ingmar Bergman, Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut, Andrzej Wajda, Federico Fellini, Ermanno Olmi and Yilmaz Gürney from the launch-pad offered by Valladolid.
More infos at the Valladolid International Film Festival official website (in Spanish).
FYI, the first un-official screening of 'Inside the Box' took place on Friday, August 2, 2013 at the UCLA James Bridge Theater in Westwood, Los Angeles.

David Martin Porras is not a newcomer at the International Film Festival of Valladolid; at Seminci 2010, he won the first prize with his short "Ida y vuelta" in the 'Castilla y León in Short' section, where he had participated in the previous year with "The Widow". In 2011 he launched his first feature film, "Stealing Summers", in the Meeting Point section
