Our film premiers tonight at Cinefest International Film Festival, and while both John and I are pleased to see the process through, we understand that it's a small part of something bigger. What we are happiest for, though, is to see Jim and his family, and my family, and the friends, and the brothers and sisters, and the kids all come out to support our project. THAT makes it worthwhile.
Jim kicked ass in his role as our black sheep runner, the fella who knows what's what, despite circumstances that might make him shallow. You get flack for having integrity nowadays, as if it makes you weak for showing strength of character. Kindness, compassion, and consideration are what make us human. Fuck being too cool for school. No one does that anymore. No one who matters, anyway.
So come out and see us tonight at 3:30. And if you can't make it tonight, we're competing Saturday for CTV's Best in Shorts at 12:30. And if you really love us, like us on the Cinefest website, so we have a chance to win the Audience Choice Award for Short Films.
