Dear supporters of Midway

Thank you from deep in our hearts for all the support and comments and well-wishes. Midway has been shouldering the blustery winds of film post-production, taking its inspiration from the albatrosses’ winged perseverance through all that man and nature send their way.   

We are proud to announce that a work-in-progress version of the film screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival last week, and had several edifying showings over the course of the festival.  Co-directors Jordan and Emiliani are now back to work polishing a final version of our film.  

Our new goal:  another festival premiere in early 2014. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please check out the new film teaser created for TIFF at

It’s been a long flight, but Midway is closer than ever...and we are so grateful you are with us on this journey.

If you donated at the $25 level or greater, please note that your perk of a downloadable copy of our finished film Midway will be available later next year if all goes well with the release of the film.  An incorrect delivery date for this perk was listed on our Kickstarter launch page and we were not able to edit it, though we have sent several notices trying to amend the date.  We sincerely apologize for any confusion this has created.

In appreciation, 

the Midway film team
