Ava and I wanted to share with you some photos from the 22nd annual Kansas City Film Fest. It’s always been a dream of ours to share any film that we’ve made in front of a live audience and to interact with the community, so it was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.

A HUGE thank you to Kansas City and all the volunteers who helped make the festival a sweet and unforgettable event. Check out some images from the festival below and stay tuned for more updates!

Winner:
Best Short Film at GRFF

We’re excited to announce that Through Rose-Colored Glasses won Best Short Film at the 10th annual Grand River Film Festival. This was especially meaningful to us, not only because of the hard work that everyone put into the film, but also due to the fact that Helmann had previously worked as a volunteer years back. With a lovely introduction by Philippa Gates, Professor and Film Adviser at the Wilfred Laurier University, we were able to watch the film at the newly built Apollo Cinema, all of which made for an unforgettable experience. 

We’re so happy to have worked with such a wonderful team and very grateful for the continued support from everyone.

For those interested in attending the awards presentation, tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

After the awards are handed out, audience members can catch a screening of The Tiger Hunter (Lena Khan 2016), and if you’re so inclined, a post-screening reception at the Grand Trunk Saloon where the director will be a guest speaker.

Hope to see you there! 🙂
