World Premiere of THE KIDS…

THE KIDS GROW UP will have its’ world premiere next month at IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam), the largest and most prestigious of all documentary festivals. It’s playing in the Reflecting Images: Masters section, along with new or recent docs by, well, there’s no other term, masters such as D.A. Pennebaker & Chris Hegedus, Frederick Wiseman, Michael Moore, Joe Berlinger, Susan Froemke, Julien Temple and Michael Winterbottom. So it’s quite an honor and my hat size has swelled accordingly.

I’ll post the screening dates and times when they become available (on Nov 7th, we hear), but the festival itself runs from November 19th thru 29th. The huge international success of 51 BIRCH STREET was pretty much a direct result of our European premiere at IDFA in 2005, so it promises to be really exciting. Three of our four broadcasters are located in Europe (ZDF/Arte, Channel 4 and VPRO), and it will be helpful to talk over future projects in person with them there. And, if that weren’t enough, Lori and I are producers of another film that’s having its’ world premiere at IDFA: Amy Hardie’s THE EDGE OF DREAMING.  It’s an extraordinary personal documentary that’s screening in the competition for feature-length documentary, and I’ll be writing about it much more in the near future.
