What a week - our first ever trip to Hot Docs
in Toronto for the World Premiere of The Closer We Get.
We screened twice to fantastic audiences - laughter, a few tears
and many insightful questions afterwards for myself and our editor
Alice who travelled out with me.
Then came the award ceremony evening at the wondrously-named
'Shangri-La' hotel, when we heard
we'd won the top prize - amazing! Luckily a friendly producer
took care of my glass award for the rest of the evening for me
(thanks Dewi!) as it went a bit hazy after that...
We met so many fantastic film-makers and film fans it really was
quite overwhelming, but a wonderful start to the film's life. We
can't wait to tell you about the UK premiere, which we can do in a
few weeks time, so do watch this space !
