AFI film festival in Dallas, TX (3 Comments)

I just returned from the AFI film festival in Dallas, TX, where we won “Best HD Feature” and a 10K prize. It was the first year for the festival, so they put everything they had into it, and it was a fantastic event! We played amongst other great documentaries and features from around the globe, and they treated filmmakers well – we had a Lexus escort the whole time! I was a little apprehensive about how well we would do in Dallas as a shark film, but the screenings were packed, and there was a huge buzz around the film. It’s really touching to see the film affecting people’s lives around the world, no matter how far they are from the ocean. I think it’s a statement to the sensibility of today. People are telling better, more relevant stories to human’s survival on the planet. Happy Feet, Finding Nemo, Inconvenient Truth, Children of Men – are all dealing with man’s impact on the planet, and however subtly, pointing to a renewed relationship with the natural world, that is necessary for the perpetuation of humans as a species.
