We’ll be there for Q&A!
We’ve spent a lot of days on the road this year, screening The 78 Project Movie in dozens of cities on our Nationwide Theatrical Release Tour. All the while we were eagerly awaiting the day we’d get to show it at home again. Which is why we’re so thrilled that IFC Center in New York City will host our homecoming screening on June 4th. And we couldn’t be happier to announce that Craig Finn of The Hold Steady will join us to cut a 78rpm record live at IFC Center after the screening.
It’s a special occasion when The 78 Project Movie is playing in New York. Don’t miss this chance to see it on the big screen!
Tickets are now available on the IFC Center Website, and at the theater box office.

We’re thrilled to announce that The 78 Project Movie will have its New York Premiere on August 5 as part of the Film Society of Lincoln Center Sound + Vision series. It’s an honor to be showing The 78 Project Movie at the beautiful Walter Reade Theater, and it will be a joy to share this film with our first hometown audience.
To celebrate this momentous hometown screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, we will be on hand at the theater with our Presto and cameras and a special guest musician to demonstrate the exciting process of cutting a 78rpm record live. We’ll also share a few stories from our travels across America to shoot The 78 Project Movie.
This will be the second edition of The Film Society of Lincoln Center Sound + Vision series, the annual documentary series that explores a diverse range of music, artists, genres and styles from all over the world, and we’re honored to be among such a fantastic lineup of music docs.
In the coming months we’ll have more exciting news about the movie. It will be showing in theaters around the country, and you’ll even have the chance to request a screening in your own town. In the meantime, make sure you’re signed up for our email list so that we can keep in touch and keep you informed with new screening dates, new episodes and new songs!
At the end of a long episode shoot, in a hotel room made tropical by radiators older than our PRESTOs, Vandaveer’s Mark Charles Heidinger and Rose Guerin, with J. Tom Hnatow on banjo, made our season bright with a holiday greeting custom made for The 78 Project. We brought out a fresh acetate, and they recorded a festive message and beautiful rendition of the classic New York Christmas song “Silver Bells.”
WATCH: Vandaveer “Silver Bells”
From all of us at The 78 Project, our dearest wishes for a peaceful, happy season. Thank you for listening and watching this year.
