    Free Tix FINDING KRAFTLAND at Downtown Disney

    FINDING KRAFTLAND, the award-winning documentary about Disneyland collector and film music agent Richard Kraft will be screening at the AMC Theater in Downtown Disney as part of Indie Fest USA. The Festival runs from August 8-15, 2008. The time and date of the KRAFTLAND screening will be announced shortly.

    Pairs of free tickets are available to the first five people to request them at [email protected].

    This off-beat feature film has been an Official Selection at more than 50 film festivals around the world where it has won over a dozen awards.

    FINDING KRAFTLAND was written and directed by Richard Kraft and Adam Shell and features interviews with such composers as Christophe Beck, Jon Brion, Danny Elfman, Alan Menken, John Ottman, Trevor Rabin, Graeme Revell and Marc Shaiman. It is hosted by Stacey J. Aswad, star of "Disney World's Top 7 Attractions."

    The film follows Kraft as he drags his son through an obsessive quest to recapture his own childhood through a globetrotting trek riding hundreds of roller coasters, collecting thousands of toys and transforming their home into "Kraftland," a shrine to Disneyland and American Consumer Culture. A love story between father and son emerges via an almost maniacal pursuit of happiness.

    I saw this film at Universal City and I have to say it was an awesome film. Still have my Kraftland Bobblehead on my bookshelf.

    Re: Free Tix FINDING KRAFTLAND at Downtown Disney

    I just got an email back saying I had won! Im so excited!

    Does anyone know what I can expect? I have never been to a film festival before!

    It says the documentary will be played at the AMC theater in downtown disney. Does that mean its just going to a movie and wearing whatever or is it more of a dressy occasion?

    I dont ever remember winning something this exciting! And this means another trip to Disneyland! Maybe this time Ill get the guts to go to a meet!

    C'mon everybody, here we go!

    Awesome. I had the privilege of seeing it at Universal City due to your generosity. Thank you for your continued generosity to the MiceChat Community.

    I went to see Finding Kraftland at a film festival in Bakersfield, Richard Krafts hometown. Everyone there was dressed casually, including Richard. Wear something that you'd be comfortable wearing to Disneyland.

    Be sure to say hello to Richard Kraft and his son Nikki. Richards a really nice fellow and very approachable.

    Have fun!!

    Well, of COURSE I'll wear something that I'd be comfortable wearing to Disneyland - where the heck else do you think I'm going before and/or after the screening depending on how the timing works?

    I got word back, we're going. Oh, and as a special treat to everybody, I'm going to see if I can drag a third person along. I have a third ticket reserved if he's available - and I'm betting he is...

    <--- Hint. But I'll wait for a time and date before I call.

    Thank you for posting this. I went to the site linked in post #1 and thought maybe I was missing something because I could not find a schedule for DTD. Now at least I know the dates.

    I read this post too late to enter for the 5 pairs of tickets but I sure would like to go see this and all things working out (I have a commitment for Wednesday night August 13), I will.
