WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A small budget movie filmed in Wilmington will be seen by audiences worldwide.

Terry Linehan, the UNCW professor who wrote and directed Don't Know Yet, has signed a distribution deal with Devolver Digital in Austin, Texas for video on demand and internet distribution. This means, starting in September, the film will be available for audiences to stream online around the world. 

If you don't want to wait that long to see it, there are two upcoming chances to watch the movie on the big screen in Wilmington.

The movie will be shown next Sunday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. in UNCW's Lumina Theater.

The event will raise money to help UNCW Film Studies students who are heading to Los Angeles for summer internships.

The movie will also be featured at this year's Cape Fear Independent Film Festival in downtown Wilmington, which takes place May 1-4.

Don't Know Yet will screen at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 2, in Thalian Hall's Studio Theater. 

Tickets for the festival are available at www.cfifn.org.

Don't Know Yet stars James Kyson (Heroes) and Lisa Goldstein (One Tree Hill).

The movie is about a heartbroken man looking for life's answers as he travels through North Carolina, giving rides to hitchhikers.

David Andrews (World War Z), Bill Ladd and Jane McNeill Balter (The Walking Dead) also make appearances in the flick.

Students from UNCW's Department of Film Studies also helped bring the script to life.

While in Wilmington, they shot on location at the Goody Goody Omelet House, Lula's Pub, and Jackson's Big Oak BBQ. They also shot scenes near Asheville.

Linehan called the movie "a love letter to the state of North Carolina."
