“Letting Go of God” got into the Seattle Film Festival! I am so happy. I’m not sure of any more details, but this will be the public world premier. And in Seattle! What could be better? Also, I'm so happy the forum is up and running. I've been enjoying reading all the entries. What a relief to have that up.

Congratulations on the film. I can't wait to see it, but being from Boston leaves me three whole time zones and one whole coast away. i listen to the c.d. i got at your show, but i'm looking forward to seeing your delivery again (especially the pictures of Jesus)

Phil Plait, The Bad Astronomer said...

Hurray! That's a great place for it. Will your family go up to see it?

Rosie said...

good for you

Carry said...

Seattle??? Yay!!! I will actually be able to go!!! I'm so excited. (if that wasn't evident by the amount of exclamation points)

I LOVE the cd and can't wait for the movie.

js said...

Huzzah!

BrotherLove said...

Julia, good on you! But, you do have a pronoun problem.

PlantGod72 said...

Julia, that's great to hear! I was in the audience here in L.A. for one of the filmed performances, and it was such a joy and honor to get to watch the process, and enjoy the show all at once. Can't wait till the dvd comes out.

All great success....p.s. loved you and Julia on TED; what a fantastic site.

bob said...

Does anyone know if or when "Letting go of God" will be out on DVD? I am assuming that is coming?
I have the CD and have really enjoyed it. I didn't even know till this past week of the DVD "And God Said HA", so I just got the DVD.

TimmyB said...

Congratulations, Julia! That's a wonderful venue for your movie's world premiere. Any chance a distributor will be there to pick it up? Or could someone from HBO wise up and program it for their network? This pieces really deserves a wider audience.

TimmyB said...

I meant "piece" singular. Oops. Watching too many hours of "Battlestar Galactica" in a row affects your typing skills.

Sheldon said...

Congrats all over the place, Julia!

Laurel said...

Fantastic! I've heard snippets of "Letting Go". Now I can watch the whole thing in hometown comfort. :D

Steve said...

Wow, congratulations, Julia. I've never tried to communicate with you in any way before, but I've seen your material here and there and it's fabulous. Best wishes!

Julia - I saw you with Ira Glass at the Paramount in Seattle. Can't wait to see your film at SIFF. Congrats!

Linda Wallace said...

I’m a Seattleite and interested in searching for answers. I’ll check out your film—thanks to “Blogs of Note.”

Mina Jade said...

Congratulations for the Seattle Film Festival, and good luck!

Grand Life said...

Love your comments and agree with almost all of them. Love Jill Sobule- caught her at the Delacourte last summer and became a fan and I'm a liberal from Utah and 65, so go figure.
Also, so far a Obama supporter mainly because everyone else is just so scary. You sound like a loveable very talented person. Good luck.

Coach BLISS said...

Kudos to Blogs of Note and the film ! Did you know that this Rev. Wright(? spelling)of Obama fame is the same one that the Clinton's had at the White House during Lewinski-Gate ? ! Hmmm.

just found this blog -- loved you on snl, which is what must come your way all the time, and i loved the this american life show from a few years back -- i teach that hour in my college courses from time to time.

this (blog) is going to be a happy addition to my crazed morning coffee-addicted reading.

enigma4ever said...

Seattle Film Festival is wonderful- congrats....the people there are wonderful.....very receptive, and well read and they love their film festival....

( I used to live there for many years .....so I might be a bit biased.....)

And there is much good food and company on Capital Hill - so when the films show- the people all go to the resturantes on the Hill and talk about the movie....

( very different than Sundance...but very nice)

good for you.....really...

stop by http://watergatesummer.blogspot.com/, lovely people there ....

Donita Smith said...

I can't wait to see it, mainly because I'm scared to death that I'll end up in an audience shot. I was, um, having a bit of trouble that night.

Man, it's been almost a year! I'm glad we'll all finally get to see it.

Brattknee Spheres said...

thats good

Johnny said...

Wow, the actual Julia Sweeney. How fun!

Have to say I caught "God Said Ha!" some years ago (4? 5?, goodness a bit ago), and very much enjoyed it. My sister and I got through deaths in our family using humour and relying on each other. Wonderful preformance. I even wrote a paper on "God Said Ha!" for psychology.

Anyway, I'll have to track down "Letting go of God"

The Ridders said...

Congrats on the film. I am so proud of you for speaking your mind. I am still trying to get the courage to declare my views to the world. My husband and only close friends know but I'm hoping I will be brave to tell others.

jayaprakashkuttan said...

well you have said your say and that sounds true too.

nerdNOTgeekDOTcom said...

Congrats , love the blurb.

Scott McLean said...

Hi Julia, I like your work. First, perhaps I ought to say something like: 'prove you are Julia'. LOL (sort of took that right out of the unwritten book of sci-fi cliches.) Anyway, I know it's you. You are very funny! And a great writer. Take care.

Snotty McSnotterson said...

Hooray, Seattle! I'm looking forward to real entertainment in my hometown.

Why S? said...

I'm so excited to have just found your blog and looking forward to the film. I saw the show in LA last year. Took friends for their birthdays hoping to stimulate novel birthday dinner conversation. Wow! Did that plan work! Anyway, I think about your journey all the time. Thanks!

Congrats! Sounds like fun! :o)

Steven Lioy said...

Hey, congrats on the film, but I do have to ask one question, is this something in support of God or removing God completely? I love God, I would never want such a thing to happen. Could you fill me in?

Faizal said...

hi there, just dropping.. congratulation on the film.

it is good thing to believe in god

The Things You Should Know said...

Hello! I'm a first time blog reader for you. I just happened across you as a blog of note, but I like the Kerouac-ian free style dumping of thoughts that you seem to do. : ) I will be back.

Steven Bently said...

I hope it comes out in DVD, and I wish you great success.

I know how much work it is to put together a film, so congratz.

k e n said...

Hey Julia - I had no idea you were blogging, but why would I? It's not like we talk anymore. Oh, that's right - we never did. So. I'm super-certain you won't trace this back to my blog, which is fine. You're busy. You have a kid, oh yes, and a career. Ha ha. Anyway, I'm just glad we're Blogger-neighbors, and I've learned something: we're both Boars! (Please forward complaints to the Chinese Astrology Dept, not me.) All the best, Ken. slouchingtyper.blogpot.com

The word of God is the truth whether we believe or not. Most people choose not to believe because God's truth exposes our sinful nature, and we don't want to change that. God is not religion, but a Holy Spirit and He created us, loves us, wants a relationship with us. God will not force us to love Him or believe, but rather turn us over to our own desires. That doesn't mean that we won't face judgment. Do we dare exalt ourselves above His knowledge? Or despise His truth? The bible says that we will all give an account whether we believe or not. What account will you give Julia? I'm afraid it will not be funny.

Moonshine said...

What theater will it be playing at?

chumly said...

Fantastic on the film, don't give up on Hillary. I lied about how big the fish I caught once and some of my Coast Guard exploits. We all are entitled to a little truth in cheek stories.

Matsumoto said...

Hooray! Congratulations on the film. I admire your talent. I'm in law school so I don't really get to do much writing "for fun," but I recently started a blog so hopefully I can be as candid and enjoyable as you.

We don't know each other, as you can probably tell, but if you're interested in attending DG founders' day in Seattle at the end of April you should let me know. Who knows, it may provide some fodder for later stories! ;-)

mythopolis said...

I guess I just stumbled into you...anyway, really glad to find good stuff to read. I write a lot and so got onto blogging. You may find some entries interesting..."The Other Scarlet Letter", and "The Reticular Formation and the Garden of Eden"...posted early March.
I am atheistic, but but don't like to call myself an atheist. It's like drawing some line in the sand between me and "them". It sets up camps of opposition. I am trying to figure out how to draw circles that encompass such sides. Can't wait to see the new film. Hat's off and Cowboy nod, and ceremonial bow! D. lifesbone.blogspot.com

I have spent most of my life in Kenya,tory burch East Africa I was intrigued to hear MBT shoes,tory burch shoes otherwise known as Masai Barefoot Technology.MBT shoes are most definitely not a fashion statement and can look a bit odd. tory burch outlet Invented in 1997 by Swiss Engineer Karl Mueller, Mbt's are seen as a highly performing aid to fitness. cheap tory burch MBT's are designed to be breathable, flexible and comfortable. tory burch boots The MBT shoes uniquely mbt designed sole, very similar to the 'tyre shoes' often worn by East African Tribal people, are said to mimic walking around barefoot in the sand.tory burch flip flops MBT shoes are slightly weighted and distribute weight evenly across the entire foot and as your body reacts to the weight and instability of the mbt shoe's sole design, muscles,tory burch handbag often those neglected, are made to work to correct this instability.tory burch handbags outlet Could there then be a better way to tone up when the only fitness aid you need is a pair of MBT shoes? tory burch heels MBT shoes can have a beneficial effect on the entire body and MBT shoes are said to enhance both training and massage effects on the body.tory burch flats Here are a few reasons why: All you need to do is start walking. Walking is probably one of the , most popular, tory burch flats cheap simplest, cheapest and enjoyable recreational activities one can find.
