    Thanks again for everything. So glad people got to see your film. We enjoy substantial themes, and sure enough, it was a topic of conversation :)

    This was a fun night in Ottawa.
    Most of the audience were local filmmakers who had helped with each other's projects. The screening was a celebration of community, and I was glad to witness it.
