World premiere wrap-up / DOC LA / 2 awards in 2 weeks / more
Holy zow. What a whirlwind. Our team is small, so we have to cram a lot into our updates now that things are rolling. It’s been a huge couple of weeks for us.
World premiere at Chicago International
Our world premiere screenings went amazingly well, Chicago really came out to support us, and the festival was generous and very good to us. Not only that, but…
[!] We won the Chicago Award vs. some extremely impressive competition.
West coast premiere at DOC LA
It’s an up and coming festival that suited us perfectly, and we got to catch up with so many friends that have made us who we are. We also sold out our screening here, so they projected it in an overflow room at the same time. That, and…
[!] Shawn won Best Director here.
It’s nice to feel some momentum and community after so many solitary hours in solitary rooms. We are blown away by the love and support from the 4 audiences that have seen this thing so far. Let’s hope it’s just the start of more to come.
Next stop: St. Louis International
We’ll be at St Louis International Film Festival this coming weekend. It’s particularly exciting for us, as there is a big diaspora population from the former Yugoslavia, and the festival has a long-standing commitment to stories by and about the region. Can’t wait to share it with them.
Know anyone in St Louis? Have them join us Sat Nov 12 and 13.
