High There continues to rack up substantial viewers as a Video on Demand, and steady sales as a limited edition DVD since its release in June. Good Story Productions recently launched a new High There trailer, titled "The Best-Reviewed Documentary Film of 2015," on YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms.

The Las Vegas Hempfest will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with entertainment, vendors and education seminars produced by Freedom Leaf, Inc.

The outdoor portion will cover 600,000 square feet (across from the convention center) with two stages of live music, speeches from activists, the Cannabis Progress Awards and a vendor village. Indoors, the fest will present panels of cannabis industry experts, advocates and celebrities.

Legendary comedian Tommy Chong will be on hand to accept a lifetime achievement award. Other celebrities include Afroman, Chanel West Coast, Wild 'N Out's Spanky Hayes, MC Ras Rebel and Medical Mike.

As for Darwen and Goren, there's been much speculation as to whether they will appear as "themselves" or in character.

"If past appearances are any indication, we can expect Dave High to be in fine form," said High There executive producer Sam Peters. "Roland Jointz? It all depends on whether he's allowed to wear his gas mask!"

High There is a Sam Peters International Productions Unlimited and Good Story Productions presentation of a Rat Lung picture, distributed by BRINKvision on limited edition DVD and VOD.

The film has received many rave reviews from indie movie websites, including A Bucket of Corn, which called High There "a perfect film," and Movie & TV Series Geek ("A perfect example of a memorable and really good piece of filmed cinema").
