Fargo Film Festival Executive Director Emily Beck noted this premiere is a special milestone for the annual festival, saying,  “We are thrilled to present the first theatrical screening of THE BRASS TEAPOT in the United States.  This is the first time the Fargo Film Festival will debut a feature film before it is released to cinemas across the country.  It will be a remarkable evening, made all the more special by the film’s unique ties to this community.”

The Brass Teapot will premiere April 5th in select theatres, nationwide, as well as a Premium V.O.D. run that will begin in late February, but not before the Sneak Preview at the Fargo Film Festival, with the fortunate connection between the festival and some of its longtime names and ????? ??????????? ? ??????????? ??????? faces
