News that I think will thrill a lot of you, who've emailed me over the last 8 months or so, asking when Victoria Mahoney's impressive feature film debut, Yelling To The Sky (which I saw at the Gen Art Film Festival last year) will be commercially released.

Thanks to an owl (Harry Potter reference) sitting on the fire escape right outside my bedroom window this morning, I've learned that the film is expected to be released by the end of this year. I can't tell you specific dates or formats yet, but the film is expected to be out within the next 3 months.

Look for an official announcement, with all the goodies, soon.

You'll recall that, last year, MPI Media Group picked up North American rights to Yelling to the Sky, a drama starring Zoë KravitzAntonique SmithGabourey SidibeTim Blake NelsonJason ClarkeYolonda RossShareeka Epps, and others.

Kravitz plays 17-year-old Sweetness O’Hara, determined to correct the mistakes of the past, takes control of her life, as her family falls apart.

A Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Lab selection, Mark Silverman Maryland Film Fellowship, and Annenberg Film Fellowship winner, Mahoney's Yelling To The Drama debuted at the Berlin Film Festival in 2011, commencing its film festival circuit travels, attracting acclaim, and some controversy, along the way.

I'm sure it'll inspire lots of conversation on this site, when most of you eventually get to see it.

Here's the trailer as a refresher:
