Turns out that Waking the Sleeping Giant received the "Best Feature" award at the Thin Line Fest! We are feeling humbled and grateful, and especially appreciative of the many people who worked on the crew or contributed financially. And we are deeply grateful to the many, many folks who allowed us into their lives to film, or sat down for interviews, or helped us make crucial connections.
And just as importantly, we are pleased because we feel so strongly that these are stories in need of telling. This was a great way to begin sharing the film with the world.
Thank you Thin Line Fest (and special thanks to the inimitable Stanton Brasher, the festival's programming director, for taking such good care of us)!
