The North American premiere at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival was incredible. We had a full house, an amazing and responsive audience who laughed and loved with us through the entire film. And on the second screening, we got standing ovations! It was beautiful. We feel fulfilled and happy and with hope that our small but passionate film will keep on travelling to other film festivals very soon. But for now: thank you for all the love, dear Hot Docs & Canadians!
THE ARTIST & THE PERVERT celebrated its world premiere at the 20th Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival to a full house at Stavros Tornes cinema. Both screenings were very well received and sold out.
The film drew a big, curious crowd asking many questions and discussing vividly the film and the controversial and radical nature of the portrayed relationship of Georg & Mollena. The 50 minutes record for longest Q&A in the festivals history was shattered within 27 hours, by the second screening with 65 minutes.
