Kansas International Film Festival (9/13/04)
Being the makers of a film in the festival we got VIP treatment. So Kim and I took in a bunch of the films for free – nothing worth writing about – and we enjoyed the special cocktail gathering for the film makers. Jim, on the other hand, spent his time shooting The Dishwasher. I barely saw him the whole trip.
Bellmore: The Unscene wound up winning "Best Documentary" (well, actually, we tied with a film called Mojados). I honestly was not expecting that! It's funny how you can be turned down from some festivals and wind up winning at others. One man's junk is another man's treasure I guess.
A month later I got my award and a congratulatory letter in the mail. Thanks Kansas International Film Festival!
