“ On behalf of IFP, we are pleased to inform you that For Thousands of Miles has been selected for the 2012 Documentary Independent Filmmaker Lab. Yours is one of ten documentary rough cuts chosen for its outstanding promise and creative vision.”
Three weeks ago an email appeared in my inbox that started with the above paragraph… I read it a few times… then I read further down the page to make sure I wasn’t getting ahead of myself. Then I read the email out-loud to Erica… then I started to panic, because, well, I’m especially good at over-thinking and panicing; I worried about taking the time off of work; I worried about what exactly the Labs program would mean for the film; I worried about the cost of staying in NYC for 6 days.
But after weighting the pros and cons, Erica and I are here in NYC - more than likely, as you’re reading this, we’re both sitting in on the first day of workshops.
I suppose it meant a lot to me that IFP selected FToM as 1 out of the 10 feature-length documentaries because it really marks the first time a juried anything has said the film was good, or, at the very least, showed “promise”.
We’re really excited to be here - and to soak up everything the Labs program has to offer. This feels, in many ways, like the final push.(via ftomfilm) So proud of Mike!
