Electric Town release

Posted in Uncategorized on March 11, 2016 by electrictownmovie

At long last, I’m very pleased to finally present the full film online for public viewing! It’s been a pretty amazing few years, as you can see from checking out the archives of this blog. It was a long, painstaking process, but it was a lot of fun and very rewarding.

I’m grateful to everybody who worked on the film and to everybody who supported the process in any way. I couldn’t have done it without all the help.

And for anybody who takes the time to watch the movie, thanks so much for your interest, and I hope you enjoy it!

Electric Town review on Film Carnage

Posted in Uncategorized on June 4, 2021 by electrictownmovie

Check out this wonderful 4 star review for Electric Town over at Film Carnage!

Mullen’s direction succinctly captures the wandering, lost atmosphere that goes with this old man’s current state of being. His style is an interesting mix, going from wider, more contemplative shots to a close-up, fly on the wall type movement. The latter matches well to how the story evolves tonally, moving through drama to comedy. It’s also a fantastic choice of location that can simultaneously bring a hustle and bustle of the city and an isolation and quietness.


Tokyo Screenings in April and May

Electric Town will be playing three times at Tollywood Short Film Theater in Shimokitazawa as part of the Tollywood Grand Operation.


If you’re in Tokyo and haven’t yet had a chance to see it on the big screen, now’s your chance!

Ivan & Jeffrey’s Aibo doc streaming now on NHK

Posted in Uncategorized on May 31, 2016 by electrictownmovie


Congratulations to Ivan Kovac, DP of Electric Town, and Jeffrey Jousan, one of the sound recording engineers for Electric Town, on the airing of their new documentary Man’s Best Friend on Japan’s NHK. The documentary is a moving and entertaining look at the world of Aibo owners years after Sony has discontinued support of their beloved robotic pets. Of course, Aibo was also a big source of inspiration for Electric Town, so I thought mention of the documentary here was especially appropriate.

The documentary has already aired on TV in Japan, but for a very limited time (only until June 12!) you can see it streaming here.

Electric Town selected for Tokyo Lift-Off Film Festival

Lift-Off Film Festival Global Network Selects Electric Town by Tony Mullen to be part of their prestigious line up of true independent cinema at this years Tokyo Lift-Off Film Festival 2016!

Local filmmaker Tony Mullen was recently awarded an official selection for their film Electric Town which was selected out of 1200+ global entrants, to screen at the prestigious Tokyo Lift-Off Film Festival.

At the event all of the films will be scored by the attending audience, where the winners are potentially screened at the ten proceeding Lift-Off global events, with the ultimate aim to give filmmakers like Tony Mullen the best exposure possible as they embark on their continued artistic journeys within the film industry.

Lift-Off currently has festivals in London, Liverpool, Manchester, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Singapore, Sydney, Hong Kong and Amsterdam.

James Bradley Co-Director and Co-Founder of Lift-Off says…

“Getting into any Lift-Off Film Festival is a massive achievement. The world of independent film has grown so much over the years that many of the grass rooted filmmakers and emerging professionals are left without much of a platform. We felt that many of these artists who were producing exceptional work were being hugely ignored – and deserved to be seen! Our judges are rigorous and we are quickly building a reputation of finding true undiscovered talent.”

Tehran International Film Festival swag arrives

Posted in Uncategorized on February 5, 2016 by electrictownmovie

It’s not often I get a package from Iran, so getting this stuff in the mail was exciting!


And the timing couldn’t have been better for sanctions to be lifted. Looks like I may actually get some prize money for this. Thanks, Obama!

Electric Town wins award at Tehran International Short Film Festival!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 19, 2015 by electrictownmovie

I’ve just been informed that ET was awarded Best Film from Asian Countries at the Tehran International Film Festival!

Iran is a place I know so little about, and a culture that is so unfamiliar to me that it is truly moving to me to know that my film connected with the audience there.

Looking at the photo gallery for the festival, it seems that it was quite an event, and the photos of the city of Tehran really make me wish I’d been able to attend!

Festivals here and there

Posted in Uncategorized on October 15, 2015 by electrictownmovie

A few more festival screenings coming up! Late notice, but I just found out that Electric Town will be screening at the Gig Harbor Film Festival (in Gig Harbor, Washington) on Sunday, Oct 18, at 5:25PM. This is very close to home for me, so I’m excited to be there and I hope some other local Seattle/Tacoma folks can make it.

The other one isn’t quite so near, and I doubt I’ll be able to stop by in person. That one is the Tehran International Short Film Festival in Tehran, Iran. That will be happening next month, between Nov 11 and 17th. I’d love to attend, but I don’t it’s in the cards…

Once these festivals are over, I will begin to think about finally releasing the film online. I’m excited to get it out so everybody can see it!

Electric Town goes to Hollywood

I’m pleased to announce that Electric Town will be having its world-outside-Japan premier at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival!

Electric Town will screen on February 17th.

Premier day

Posted in Uncategorized on October 13, 2014 by electrictownmovie

I’m excited to finally premier Electric Town today in front of actual audiences. By sheer coincidence it’s going to have two Japan premiers at the same time, one in Tokyo at the Shimokitazawa Film Festival and one in Hokkaido at the Sapporo International Shorts Festival. I wish I could get to both, but I’m only going to be able to make the Shimokitazawa showing. Looks like the festival is going to narrowly miss getting hit by supertyphoon Vongphong, so we’re lucky with the timing!
