So excited to announce that our next festival stop is the 23rd Annual Woods Hole Film Festival in gorgeous Cape Cod!
Both Alexis and I will be at the screening, which is Tuesday, July 29th at 9pm.
Last night was the end of the Brooklyn Film Festival, which was an extraordinary experience, start to finish. They are so filmmaker-centric and helpful and the PR reach was amazing and I’m obsessed with everyone I met, from staff to other filmmakers. Our two screenings were packed and the response was incredible. People laughed and I heard gasps and just HOLY WOW is it fun to watch a film with that engaged a crowd around you.
And then at the awards ceremony last night, we won a few things! They gave us best score (yes Dan Tepfer!), best screenplay (WHAAAAA??? I burst into tears and all I think I said into the mic was “what a fucking honor” – which, I mean, that’s about all I guess I needed to or should say) and we also received the audience award for best feature.
This was taken by Pete Demas when they announced the audience award. I shouldn’t have worn mascara last night is all I’m saying.
I’m over the moon, truly. We all are. What a fucking honor.
Thank you to everyone who came out and saw our premiere and listened to me rapid fire babble at our Q&A and then ate tacos with me under the stars. There is no way the screening could have been better. It was a full house, and so many members of the cast and crew were there, and friends, and family, and total strangers who read our synopsis in the film festival program and thought it might be fun. The energy in the room was magic.
What an honor and a joy, seriously. Probably the best night of my life.

And I’m so excited to share more festival news! It’s coming very soon. Stay tuned!
