Tofino plays starts playing movies at 4pm, so I had plenty of time for relaxing and beach walking before film watching.The organizers work so hard to get great films and to get directors out to their gorgeous town, and it really showed. I got to see a slew of really good movies including How to Die in Oregon which won the Grand Prize at Sundance, so we were in pretty good company.
Grant missed his connecting flight and ended up renting a car and driving into Wichita at 3:30am, but it was reportedly all uphill from there. Despite his lack of sleep, he participated in a filmmakers meet and greet, a panel discussion, and had Q and A at a sold out screening. When he got home, he wouldn't stop talking about the welcoming people and the abundance of friendly volunteers and great food.
Better yet, although Kansas is apparently the worst state for sustainability, our film was really well recieved, and we garnered runner up for audience choice for Best Documentary!
