The Climb selected as one of the best short films of 2018

What a lovely email to receive this morning:

CONGRATS! Your film THE CLIMB has been accepted to the FEEDBACK Film Festival, part of our best of FEMALE Film Festival lineup. We are honored that you submitted to our festival as we consider it one of the best short films from 2018.

Thrilled to be part of such an important movement in filmmaking.  The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes.  Their goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival.

The Climb will be screened on Thursday evening at 9pm on June 28th, at the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto.
