Premiere of Hood To Coast, a documentary directed by former exchange student and UNCG alum, Christoph Baaden

A former exchange student and UNCG alum, Christoph Baaden has directed an independent film called Hood To Coast, which is coming to over 350 movie theaters across the US on January 11, 2011. He has been working on the film for the last three years and is now finally being released at select theaters.

The film is an inspiring new documentary that follows four teams with various levels of athletic ability on their epic journey to conquer the world’s largest relay race. This is a film about ordinary people on an extraordinary journey. It played very successfully at South by Southwest (SXSW) this year to sold-out non-runner crowds.

Christoph first came to UNCG as an exchange student from the University of Mannheim. Originally from Germany, he has lived in the US since coming back as a Graduate student in 1999. He graduated from the Broadcasting & Cinema Masters program in 2001, winning a Student Emmy for his Master’s thesis. After graduating, Christoph moved to Los Angeles.

In Greensboro, the film will be played at 8:00pm on January 11, at the Regal Grande Stadium. Tickets are on sale at www.hoodtocoastmovie.com/tickets.html.

Here are two simple things you can do that will make a big difference to Christoph and his film team:

1) Please REQUEST THE MOVIE at www.hoodtocoastmovie.com/tickets.html. It only takes 30 seconds but it helps tremendously! The more requests they get, the faster they can add screens in your city and nationwide, plus the film can get additional nights.

2) If you are planning to join the show- please buy tickets early! The more early demand they can show for the film, the better. This will really help the film a lot.
