New Filmmakers NY Screening

The New York screening at Anthology Film Archives went just great. The timing was perfect, right in the middle of NY Pride week. Chris Rabideau, whose story was featured in the documentary, attended the screening as well as Eva from the Windsor Pride board. I was thrilled that the three of us could share in this moment and celebrate all the months of  hard work.  And how sweet of them to present me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!

In the Q&A, we received very positive feedback from the audience as well as from the NewFilmmakers organizers.  One member of the audience was so enthusiastic that she is looking into the possibility of showing the film in Europe.  We’ll keep our fingers crossed about that!

Here I am with my cousin Portia Steen. It was great that she came out in the sweltering NY heat to show her support. Afterwards I got to meet her long time beau, Andy, and then the three us turned up the heat with very spicy Sri Lankan food, not to mention very stimulating conversation.
