We can't say enough about our time in Denton, Texas. The Thin Line Fest team was terrific and super friendly and did a great job with the festival. Everyone we met in Denton, including other filmmakers, festival-goers, and random Denton residents, were super friendly as well. The festival itself was loaded with great films and music. It was a perfect festival for our U.S. (and world) premiere.
And what a premiere it was! Amy Goodman joined by Facetime and offered an enthusiastic introduction to the film. The theater itself was a gorgeous mid-century art house, and Sleeping Giant looked and sounded really, really good. The large audience (despite the late 9pm start time) seemed genuinely moved, we had a bunch of engaged questions during the Q&A, and the entire time afterward at the festival afterward people kept talking to us about the film.
We couldn't have asked for a better premiere - thank you Thin Line and Denton!
