Pirates Spotted On Great Lakes



Digital Playground is very pleased to announce Joone’s R-rated version of the XXX blockbuster film, Pirates has sold out the Great Lakes Film Festival. It is the first time in history a movie has sold out the festival, with many people still trying to get in to the theater after the movie started. It is also unprecedented for a movie that has been released for a year. The movie received a standing ovation from the floor and during the hour-plus, open Q & A forum, it was the consensus that Pirates works, even without the sex. Steven M. Opsanic, Festival Director of the Great Lakes Film Festival raves, “We are thrilled to have been able to screen Pirates and honored to have Joone as a guest to present it. GLFF was founded on the goal of presenting the work of truly independent filmmakers who consistently prove that creative, cutting edge work can be done outside of the Hollywood system, and that given an alternative choice, the audience enjoys the opportunity to experience something new. In my opinion, no one personifies this independent spirit like Joone, who with Pirates has raised the bar for all filmmakers. And the capacity crowd on a Wednesday night proves that the audience agrees. The effort and support that Digital Playground and star Jesse Jane put into standing behind this film, leaves no doubt that good films can be successful regardless of the genre. We were honored to be a part of the success of their film.” Director Joone says, “the experience was remarkable. It has been an honor to be among so many independent filmmakers and artists and to have their wholehearted support for my craft.”

The film festival has showcased over 250 films over the past 4 years including numerous films that have been aired on HBO, PBS, and the Sundance channel.
