How To Be US Release, Soundtrack, & Film Festival Info

The U.S. Release of How To Be!

Welcome to the many thousands of you who have signed up to the How To Be mailing list since the release of Twilight! How To Be is a British indie comedy about a struggling musician, played by Robert Pattinson, who shot the movie just before making Twilight.

We're excited to announce the much-anticipated U.S. release of How To Be! The film has been picked up for distribution by IFC Films and will premiere on IFC Festival Direct in April. To coincide with IFC's spring release, the How To Be soundtrack will be available on iTunes and on CD through Dreamboat Records. Full details of the release to come soon, and if you're not in the U.S. or Italy then rest assured that we are hard at work setting up distribution elsewhere!

Leading up to the release, How To Be is going on a U.S. tour! Oliver Irving (Writer/Director), Joe Hastings (Composer), Mike Pearce (Nikki), and Johnny White (Ronny) will be bringing the film to select cities, hitting states along the East coast from Florida to Massachusetts. April tour dates are still being finalized, but stay tuned for updates!

In the meantime, How To Be has confirmed an Australian premiere and joined the rosters of several U.S. film festivals, many of which Writer/Director Oliver Irving will be attending. See below for dates and links to information and ticket sales for upcoming festival screenings.
