EARTHBOUND USA documentary to debut at Loft Film Fest on Oct. 16th, 2023

After 10 years of production and hundreds of hours of footage, EARTHBOUND USA is finally complete. We mentioned a few weeks back that the documentary is set for release on November 27th 2023, but it’s actually going to make its public debut a few weeks before that.

The official EARTHBOUND USA X account has revealed that the documentary is going to be shown to the public for the first time on Oct. 16th, 2023 at the Loft Film Festival at 7:30 PM. Even better, the premiere will be followed by a Q&A with the director and production team. You can find out more about the Loft Film Festival, which takes place in Tucson, Arizona, right here.

EARTHBOUND USA began life in 2013 as a passion project started by writer & director Jazzy Benson. Inspired by the internet folklore surrounding EarthBound ’s U.S. fanbase, and from hearing the insider stories behind Starmen.Net’s legendary petitions and letter-writing campaigns, Jazzy aimed to create a documentary that evokes the atmosphere and environments of a passionate fan community growing up online from one decade to the next.

This independent feature-length documentary of epic proportions was a featured component of Fangamer’s “You Are Now EarthBound” Kickstarter in 2014. Over the years the production staff grew from one to seven people, and the team worked to track down the story of EarthBound ’s release and revival by speaking with the unique voices that experienced it firsthand. Interviews with the game’s creator, former Nintendo employees, members of the 90s gaming press, and the webmasters and community behind Starmen.Net, have been combined with period-appropriate sets, quirky performances, and fast and surprising narrative techniques to present over 20 years of history and personal connections.
