Just Himself: the story of Don Jamieson has been submitted to a few more film festivals in Canada and the United States. We’re contenders for selection at the Canada International Film Festival in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The documentary has also been submitted to two more festivals internationally – the Cleveland International Film Festival, celebrating films that are all about education, entertainment and a celebration of the human experience, which is from March 22 – April 1, 2012.
Just Himself was also sent to the True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri, which focuses on the documentary genre. That one will take place from March 1 – 4, 2012.
It’s been an exciting few weeks! With the film complete, patience becomes a virtue as we now wait to hear back from some film festival submissions and anticipate a private screening before the big broadcast on NTV later on in the fall of 2011!
So far we’ve submitted the documentary film to the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the Festival du nouveau cinéma in Montreal, Quebec.
Outside of Canada, we’ve also submitted to DOC NYC! There will be others in the coming weeks as deadlines approach and we’ll be sure to post updates on submissions and about any festivals that Just Himself: the story of Don Jamieson gets accepted to!
