Another 'Indie Film Giveaway' for 'Buzzard', 'Faults', & 'Wild Canaries'
A few years back, for the release of his new film, director David Lowery of Ain't Them Bodies Saints (great film) hosted a social media giveaway where they would send prizes to anyone who saw four indie films in one weekend. They sent out some truly one-of-a-kind prizes, including signed scripts and props from the films, but above all just wanted to remind people to support indie films. Well, another filmmaker by the name of Riley Stearns is launching a brand new "Indie Film Giveaway" for three new features that were just released: Lawrence Michael Levine's Wild Canaries, Joel Potrykus' Buzzard and Stearns' Faults. Similar to Lowery's fun giveaway, it's as simple as photographing your ticket stubs and emailing them in.
Here's the official tweet below from writer/director @RileyStearns announcing details about their "Indie Film Giveaway" for these three films. They're even including VOD rentals, so if you hop on iTunes and rent all three of these, you can get something sent as well. The email to use is IndieFilmGiveaway@gmail.com.
See (in a theater)/rent/buy all three films by March 12th and we’ll send some stuff your way! pic.twitter.com/gdaYMx4nbu

There you have it. All the info about the giveaway can be found in that tweet, follow @RileyStearns for more.
Lawrence Michael Levine's Wild Canaries (watch the trailer) stars Sophia Takal & Alia Shawkat, about a Brooklyn couple who get mixed up with their landlord. Joel Potrykus' Buzzard (watch the trailer) stars Joshua Burge as a slacker who goes on a crime spree with his Power Glove. Riley Stearns' Faults (watch the trailer) stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Lance Reddick, about cults and mind control. As of this weekend, March 6th, 2015, all three films are playing in limited theaters and are available on VOD. We hope you take a look at these films, and we hope everyone continues to support indie films/filmmakers. I've seen Buzzard and I think it's an interesting film, but I'm not the biggest fan. But don't listen to me - see all three anyway.
