A Note from the Director
Having just finished our first two film festivals, I’m most impressed by the response from the audiences. They laugh when they should, and stick around after the film ends and have amazingly thoughtful questions. There’s never a dull moment and many hands are in the air simultaneously at our Q&As. We even had a visit from Mark Guydish, a reporter for the Times-Leader in Wilkes-Barre, PA, who drove from Pennsylvania to Portsmouth to see the finished film. Mark appears as one of the “nay-sayers” in the film, and wrote a wonderful follow up article that can be read here. Thanks to Mark and all the people who came out to support and celebrate the film’s debut. Now, on to the next festivals.
