Later was the main reception at the Droichead Arts Centre, great to be back there so soon after screening Derelict. There was a great crowd in, nearly a full house. Great vibe in the room too. First screened the 6 finalists, which were great, all from different parts of the country. Then Joe & Sarah. It got a great reaction, really did, in fact probably the best reaction to a film I've ever had! Which was nice. Seeing your film on the big screen is always a thrill, but for me, this time, is was more of a thrill to sit beside Stephen and Anne and watch their reaction to seeing themselves up there! Amazing.
There was a Q&A with me, Stephen and Anne! And a presentation of framed posters of the movie (above), which was an unexpected surprise. It was truly an honour to be part of this project. I think everyone involved did a fantastic job. The fact that we pulled this together from scratch in 6 to 8 weeks is phenomenal! Proud of everyone.
