Producer back from Toronto Documentary Forum

I just returned to Vancouver after having attended a fabulous Documentary Film Festival and Industry Event in Toronto called Hot Docs and The Toronto Documentary Forum (TDF) . BC Film graciously sponsored part of my expenses through their “Attending Markets” funds available. Hot Docs and TDF was a place for me to really see what was happening in the International World of Documentary film making. With numerous lectures from industry people from around the world and an exciting two day pitching session from filmmakers worldwide, I left having made many contacts in the industry. I also passed around the film to various broadcasters and distributors who showed a keen interest in the subject matter.

We continue to move ahead in completing the film as the Toronto International Film Festival application deadline approaches. It is thrilling to know that people in the industry are watching the film and that Silent Music is starting to make its way out there. I also realized that patience and persistence are the two elements all producers and directors need to maintain. Things will happen, it’s just a matter of when.
