We want to offer the hugest of thanks to the DOXA film festival for hosting our international premiere ... they put on a great festival, they treated the filmmakers and audience members alike really well, and Waking the Sleeping Giant screened in two fantastic Vancouver theaters. It's never looked and sounded so good.
And we are grateful the film was received so warmly at both screenings. Roughly 300 people attended between the two screenings, nearly everyone remained for the Q&A after the film, and when they finally kicked us out of the theater (so the next film could start) we ended up in the lobby with long lines of folks who had more questions and comments. The film tells some really important stories, and it was gratifying that so many people (Canadians and Americans alike) found moving and inspiring.
And we had a great contingent of fans who made their way to Vancouver to be part of this, from Colorado, Seattle, and Vancouver! Thanks to everyone who made their way to the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at Simon Fraser University or The Annex (at the Orpheum) to be part of our international premiere.
