Look who made the cover of the winter issue of the indie filmmaking bible, FilmMaker magazine?

Monsieur Barry Jenkins, writer/director of Medicine For Melancholy, which will open for a limited run at IFC theatres, here in New York City, on January 30th.

Also with him on the cover are the stars of Medicine For Melancholy, Wyatt Cenac (whom most will recognize from his now and then stint on The Daily Show with John Stewart), and relative newcomer, Tracey Heggins.

The issue isn't yet on newsstands, but will be shortly, I'm sure.

FYI: Barry Jenkins will be a guest on my podcast the week his film opens - Monday, January 26th, from 8PM to 9PM. We'll chat about Medicine For Melancholy, surely, as well as other film related topics. Looking forward to it! Mark it down on your calendars.

Congrats to Barry and company! Hope the film is a success.

    Well, well done Mr Jenkins! Nice industry exposure.

    I missed M4M when it was at London Film Festival a few months ago. Hopefully I'll get to see the film some time soon though.
