Thanks for all the great feedback from our television premiere on Connecticut Public Television. Many have asked when the film will repeat and we just heard from the station, so here goes:
Tonight (Tuesday, December 11th) @ 1:00 a.m.
Saturday, December 15th @ 2:30 a.m.
Sunday, December 23 (not 16th) at 12:30 p.m.
All times Eastern on CPTV (Channel 10 in most areas).
We are so pleased to announce that Five Friends will be airing on Connecticut Public Television on December 10th @ 10pm. CPTV is the third largest public television station in the country and the folks there have been incredibly supportive of the film. They will continue to run the film, including the following Sunday, the 16th, so check your local Connecticut listings! If you’re out of the Connecticut area, it may still be coming to you soon as we are discussing representation of the film to the other markets and affiliates around the country. Come back soon for updates…

This comes from a fellow filmmaker, fan and now friend who recently saw the film:
Brianna may have told you I’d be writing. My wife and I are very regular customers at R+D and have become quite fond of your daughter over the years. I don’t need to tell you that she is a very bright and warm person with a great spirit. Having now seen FIVE FRIENDS, I can see from where that great spirit comes. Brianna was kind enough to lend me the film and I was impressed. I am fifty-eight and an independent film producer with a long history of having been a creative executive in the film business at the studio level. If a man needs to have five good friends at the end of his life in order to claim success, I am five short. Which is, of course, the power of the film. A wake up call, I suppose. It’s not too late, I’m hoping. If the intent of the film was to illuminate the importance of cultivating male friendship, then it was a success for me. I’m motivated. Of course it is also a portrait of a man. As the subject, you have to proud. You are a wise and thoughtful man and it was generous of you to share yourself with those of us who have the opportunity to see FIVE FRIENDS. Deepest congratulations on the excellent journey you’ve taken. And my congratulations also to the filmmaker who knows what he’s doing.
Thanks so much for the kind words Curtis!
