Vancouver news (part 1)

Briefly, a picture of something every filmmaker would love to see: "Sold Out!" The first screening went beautifully, with a sold out crowd of about 250. Almost everyone stayed for a good Q&A afterwards. On my way now to the second screening, on a Sunday morning at 10:45. I'm guessing there won't be a "sold out" sign for this one...

Excellent news! Congratulations on the sell-out show, and good luck in the competition.

I am a physics teacher who brings a load of kids and six other teachers from Northern Michigan to Fermi every year. I need to know how we can see your movie. Maybe at the Traverse City Film Fest next year??? It is not playing anytime on our local PBS in the near future and I missed it on the 25th. Any ideas? We would love to see it sooner! Thanks! - Mrs. B

Hello. I will be seeing your film at the Paris festival this week. My son, who is finishing high school, and wants to study physics would have loved to come along. He won't be able to, because the screening is in the afternoon, at which time he is busy studying. It would be nice if you could find a way for the film to be more accessible.

Dear Mrs. B --- Sorry your local PBS station does not carry Independent Lens. What's the name of your station? If you would like to show the film to your students or a student group, please let us know and we can arrange something. If you like, please contact me directly at clayton [at] 137films [dot] org. Look forward to hearing from you!

Hello, jfdockes ---
So glad to hear you will be seeing the film in Paris! Soon the film will be available for sale from PBS Home Video. Believe me, we are trying to make it as accessible as we can! Unfortunately there will likely not be a theatrical release in which one could see the film at a local theatre. However, we are working on European distribution.

In the meantime, may I ask if you are a physicist? I assume you live in Paris?
