Threads is moving out into the world. Thanks to your help, this inspiring documentary will be available in coming days to audiences of cinema lovers including film industry executives and distributors.
— VISIONS DU REEL: Starting April 17 Threads will be available in the Media Library at the Visions du Reel Film Festival in Nyon, Switzerland. Anyone with an industry pass can view the film onsite during the festival and online for six months. Please check out our listing in the Medial Library catalog and click the Facebook “like” button.
— JULIEN DUBUQUE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: We are very excited to be in this festival in Dubuque, Iowa, since Surayia has a strong connection to the state. As we’ve mentioned in an earlier post, Surayia sold her artwork in the late 1960s through the gift shop at the Des Moines Art Center. Those sales, which were arranged by a woman from Iowa who was temporarily staying in East Pakistan, came at a crucial time in Surayia’s life and helped her to build her house.
At the festival, Threads will be screening three times in a program (DOC I) with three other short documentaries:
* Thursday, April 23 at 1:30PM at Stan’s
* Friday, April 24 at 9:00AM at Stan’s and
* Sunday, April 26 at 3:30PM at Vinny Vannuchi’s
If you are in the area, please attend!
— HOT DOCS: For those with an industry pass, Threads will be available in the Doc Shop and viewable for 12 months online. Cathy will be attending Hot Docs and looks forward to stimulating films — including Drawing the Tiger by Seattle film makers Amy Benson and Scott Squire — and stimulating conversations.
