This year has been good. Since we started with a series of public showings, we were able to premiere the film in the US with screenings in DC, Baltimore and Bethesda, we then took the film to NYC, Toronto, Calgary, Cambridge, Chicago and a five-city tour in Ukraine. So we decided to close 2011 with one final showing in Bethesda’s Landmark Cinema where there was the largest crowd the last time around and even a sizable group of people who could not get into the sold-out showing.
Organizing a screening on December 8th honestly proved to be quite challenging. It was hard to compete for attention with all the holidays parties and kids’ Disney shows that take place at this time of the year.
Thankfully, we have a very powerful marketing and outreach resource in the area called Olia’s “Fellow Moms Network.” They are as powerful as a local newspaper and as an added bonus, they are a lot of fun to hang out with over drinks after the show.
The screening went well. The theater was almost full and we were surprised to see that several people who had already seen the film the first time around, had come back for another viewing and brought their friends along. Our favorite comment during the discussion came from a man -who had come to see the film for the second time – and who said that if it were up to him, he would grant us the Nobel Peace Price. (We think it’s really a shame the decision is not up to him…)
This year has been good. We look forward to 2012.
