Well, it’s been a quiet summer since wrapping a few months ago, but a couple of things have been in the works including the beginning stages of a creative marketing campaign. DE is now on Facebook (as well as a director’s page), where we hope to continue providing regular updates with the movie. Please follow us if you haven’t already.
In other news, as it’s now September, film festival season has officially begun, and we're now gearing up to finally screen in a few cities...
Here is our rundown:
Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival
Gala Reception: Sunday Sept 18th
“Currently screening approximately 135 films, including full-length features, shorts, documentaries and animation, Cinéfest Sudbury provides cinephiles with first-class film works and industry discourse each September.”
Calgary International Film Festival
Festival Opening Gala Reception: Thursday September 22nd
“Always one of the most celebrated announcements of the season, CIFF rolled out the carpet today at its brand new Lifestyle Lounge in Chinook Centre and announced its Opening and Closing Gala films to the anticipation of the gathered crowd.”
Edmonton International Film Festival
Feature Film, Oh, Canada!: Saturday the 24th
“Our Festival is about 'discovery'. We strive to uncover cinematic gems and celebrate unique new voices in independent filmmaking. EIFF is about films and the people who make them.”
Vancouver International Film Festival
Canadian Images: Sun Oct 9th and Tues Oct 11th
“Each year the best current features, documentaries and shorts from all regions of Canada are presented in what has become one of the largest annual public exhibitions of new Canadian film in the world. From an average of more than 600 submissions, our programmers select the top 100, and the Vancouver public responds very enthusiastically, making this one of our best-attended series.”
We’re very excited that DE is being embraced by these festivals. Hope to see you there!
