    Strad Style - On DVD and BLU-RAy

    John, I'm so sorry that VUDU made it difficult to watch the movie. As the filmmaker, it's frustrating when people can't easily and painlessly watch the movie. Same with Amazon. Hope more of you will watch Strad Style and pass the word on about the movie. (or course only if you enjoyed it. ) I would like to add that we are working on European distribution and hoping to have it available on Amazon.UK very very soon!

    Strad Style - On DVD and BLU-RAy

    Hmm, Interesting. Technically is SHOULD be available in Canada. I shall talk to the distributor. Thank you for your interest and I will make sure to get it resolved! Thanks!!! I will note - it IS available on (US), for whatever that's worth.
  3. For all you old-school people that like a physical disc in hand, Strad Style is Now available on DVD and BLU-RAY! And loaded with extras, too! Hope you check it out. As makers, you're sure to get a kick out of it!
  4. Violin Documentary Hit, Strad Style will screen at a very special one-time event in Toronto, on January 30th at the Ted Rogers Cinema as part of Hot Docs, MUSIC ON FILM series. Jonathan Crow, Toronto Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster (who plays a Guarneri similar to the one in the film), and one of his students will participate in a post-screening discussion with Mervon Mehta, executive director of The Royal Conservatory of Music's Performing Arts Division. Presented with The Royal Conservatory of Music.

  8. Indeed, Antonio does have a thick accent and DOES sound like he's giving out Italian food recipes. Jack Benny as Antonio Stradivari
  9. Hello all you Makers, At the special request from Christopher Germain, there's going to be a one-time screening of "Strad Style" at Oberlin this coming week. The time isn't locked yet, but likely June 19th or 20th. So - if you're going to be there (or are already there), it'll be a chance to see the movie. Enjoy!
  10. Hi! We are working hard on trying to get the movie distributed - first into theaters and then streaming and DVD. It's a lot of work to get that to happen and hopefully interest in and at festivals will generate the buzz needed for a decent distribution deal. Thanks so much for your interest!!! Stefan
  11. Hi all.. Again. LOL Some more festival screening dates for Strad Style. We are still working on a distribution deal that will actually get this movie into theaters more generally and then home video. In the meantime, (and perhaps the best way to see it in any setting) - here are some more festival dates. AFI DOCS - Washington DC June 17th, June 18th Landmark's E Street Cinema Mammoth Lakes Film Festival Thurs. May 25, 2017 @ 7:00pm • USFS Theater Mendocino Film Festival Mendocino Village Festival Tent Saturday June - 3 @ 10:00 AM If anyone is in any of these areas and interested - let me know. I usually can get some comp tickets... Thanks!! Stefan Avalos
  12. Thank you. Yes, we are keeping our fingers crossed that it gets regular theatrical distribution. Getting the word out and good crowds at festivals is helpful. Sound track - lots of Paganini, some Sarasate, some Kreisler, a little Bazzini and some original, too.

  15. HI ALL, A bit of shameless self promotion on a movie I made (and that I saw little bit of commenting about)... Strad Style will playing at the Arclight in Chicago, Tonight! (March 29th) at 8pm. One Show only. Late notice? yup. That's my fault. I'm really sorry about that. In any case, if you're in Chicago, it's an amazing way to see the movie and I promise - as makers - you WILL be highly entertained. Also, it is making the festival rounds now, so if you're interested, please check out the facebook and website pages for it for more info. Hope to meet (those whom I've not yet met) you face to face and hope you get a chance to see my movie. Sincerely, Stefan Avalos
