A Good Way to Start…

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks.

Thank you to our Vancouver home town for a grand welcome: I received the BC Emerging filmmaker award sponsored by UBCP/ACTRA and WFW and then came home for closing night to get the WIFTV Artistic Merit Award. The juries for both awards were incredibly gracious in their comments and I’ll take this forward as encouragement on the next one!

Also, thank you to Busan International Film Festival. I love traveling for work and to be sent to the other side of the world with a nomination for one’s movie is pretty dreamy. The film festival there is top-notch and absolutely worth the jet-lag. The people in South Korea were so kind and generous – thank you Dosin Pak and Ji-in. Makes me want to do a film every year just to come back!

And now, back to work, and grateful to have projects to come home to. This writing and filming and editing stuff is so essential to my day to day. It keeps me grounded and curious…
