Might I suggest contacting the San Francisco Cinematheque to see if they
would be interested in sponsoring a screening or maybe incorporate the
piece in a showing at their annual Crossroads Film Festival at the Victoria
Theatre. Alas I am in Cuba so will miss any showings this month in the Bay
Area. Being the holiday season I wonder why December was chosen for a
screening.

Thanks
