The festival is over and the audiences of the RiverRun International Film Festival connected with Postales.  As we walked along the streets of Winston-Salem, NC or watched movies, it was amazing to be stopped by people who had watched the film to be told, “I really enjoyed the film…Thank you for showing the film at the festival…The kids were great…I liked the story and the message…I can’t wait to see more films from you guys.”

We also met a lot of great filmmakers, journalists, and festival folks who helped to us re-energize and advise us on how to navigate the tricky waters of today’s distribution.  Hopefully these chance encounters will help Postales find a good home at festivals throughout the US and with distributors trying to find good films.  Deep thanks to all the folks we met in Winston-Salem – you all know who you are.  We’ll be in touch and thanks for all the advice and thoughts on our film.

Some reviews are starting to come out from the festival and this is one of our favorites to date.  It might have even made some of our producers cry, in a good way. (hehehehehehehehe)

Another Josh Hyde project has been embraced by IFP. This time it’s a pitch for a script he is working on entitled, “Mountaintop”, which will be featured at the 2010 IFP Script to Screen Conference on Saturday, March 20.

His project will be part of a workshop that focuses on pitching films to executives, funders and producers.  It will be moderated by Mike Ryan, Producer of Junebug. Way to go Josh!

Five lucky IFP Program alumni were selected based on the strength of their one-sentence pitches.  The five filmmakers and their projects are:

Brian Iglesias, THE MESSIAH
Shari Carpenter, SATURDAY’S CHILD

The Lofu Team continues to work day and night in an attempt to finish Postales. It’s been an exhausting process, and we are almost there.  Hip-hip hooray!

Our hearts have been heavy thinking about the people who’ve lost their homes and lives in the recent flooding in Peru. Last time I checked, more than 40,000 had been affected by the floods. Our prayers go out to you.

I dig it, don't you?
