Toronto, Here We Come

The week was seeming rather disastrous, and then I received this:

"Congratulations! You are finalist for the International Documentary Challenge! Your film will be screening as part of the Doc Challenge Showcase and Awards Ceremony at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on Saturday, April 26 at 9:30 p.m where we will announce the Grand Prize Winner ($1,000) and other awards (Cinematography, Editing, etc.)"
HotDocs is a fantastic film festival, and we had a blast last year. It's incredible to be going again....

You can see more on the International Documentary Challenge site, though they haven't updated as of this writing.

This blog's friend HaikuGirl has more details on the 14 finalists, though unfortunately her film won't be at the screening (I still very much want to see it, though -- it's on a topic I really like). Still, she lives in Toronto and will be attending the fest -- so there will be pictures and liveblogging....

Previously, I posted here and here about the process of making the film.
