Pleased to share our documentary has been selected as a finalist in the 2019 Overcome Film Festival. It’s especially amazing in that this is my first feature length documentary, as I’d described myself only as a slightly advanced beginner. It speaks to the intersectionality and importance of the topic, the strength and sincerity of the participants (see this here), and justifies the hard painful work so many of us put into the project, refusing to give up.
More about the festival, and head to their site to check out their partners and the many great causes they support:
“The 2019 Overcome Film Festival is the international event for all storytellers, filmmakers, and artists to tell the world their stories of survival and triumph over adversity. The 2019 official program will include Features and Short films in the categories of live-action, animation, narrative, non-narrative, experimental, and audiovisual poetry with 27 Award categories.
The Overcome Film Festival especially encourages and welcomes the entries of filmmakers all over the world who want to share their experiences in overcoming adversity or any other factor that has contributed to their growth as a person and motivated them to celebrate their existence. It is the focus of the film festival to give survivors a voice and a venue to share their life experiences and provide hope to others regardless of where they come from in the world.”
