Update #24

Finally getting out there...!

3 comments

Dear, dear friends and supporters of RICKY on LEACOCK.

It has been a long time coming but, thanks largely to your generous support (and patience), we finally have 'finished' the film...!

I use the word, 'finished' advisedly because, we're still in a precarious financial position while finalizing the licensing, etc. for the distribution.

But, thus far, the festival experience has been wonderful...

The World Premiere last March was at IT'S ALL TRUE Festival in Brazil. This is a GREAT documentary festival. A perfect place to meet and discover the work of both established and new directors from around the world. Sebastián came, too, and we both count it among our best festival experiences. The film screened in both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to enthusiastic audiences and very good press!

Our European Premiere was in June at BIOGRAFILM in Bologna, Italy. This exquisite festival really showed its stuff! Diverse and interesting films exploring entertaining ideas. And, a chance to meet directors working through the filmmaking challenges of making films about people.

The very best news from Italy is that Ricky's legacy lives on at BIOGRAFILM with the festival's creation of the Richard Leacock Memorial Award, which will be presented each year beginning in 2013.

And, now, we have several new festival invitations to consider.

Next stop: DocuWeeks
