We began sharing our film with the world earlier this winter, first by screening our film at wine industry conferences, and now at film festivals around the country. There is something humbling about putting yourself (and your art) out there for people to chew on, critique, love or hate, but it’s all good in that we’re learning a ton.
We’re inspired by the wonderful films we’ve seen, the filmmakers we’ve met, and the audiences that support all of us. Right now we’re waiting for responses from a couple dozen film festivals with most of the notifications coming mid-late summer, so we pause, wait, reflect, and maybe tweak the film just one more time 🙂
Our first acceptance came from the Oneota Film Festival (Decorah, IA) as an Official Selection, the second came as a Special Screening Selection for the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (Dubuque, IA). We thank both festivals for selecting our film and providing us an audience to show our documentary. The most recent Official Selection acceptance came from the Vero Beach Wine & Film Festival and we’re gearing up for their June event in Florida!! This is going to be a blast!!!
To our friends we say “thank you” for following along with us as we work our way through this process. It’s been about 3 years since we began this journey and with good fortune we’ll find a home for our film so it’ll reach wine fans all across the country.
