"This is a funny, funny film."

Last night was the Montréal premiere screening of These Girls - a mix of promo giveaway winners, friends and crew. It went really well; a good time was had by all and there were lots of big laughs, topped off by some very nice comments after the screening. It marks nicely that zone between my ownership of the film (artistically) and the next step in its life where it is taken by the distributor and sent out there to fend for itself in the big cold dangerous world of the multi-plex. On one hand I know there is nothing more I can do but I still have anxious feelings about it - I still feel responsible. So on the eve of our theatrical release here in Québec it is nice to be cheered on by the words of a reviewer who really got the film - check out Dave Jaffer's review in Montréal's Hour Weekly .

Is there any chance that as the film gets great reviews in Canada, it may get a broader release in the US? I would just love to see this film on the big screen.

If the film was a box office success in Canada it might have an effect on the US release, reviews themselves don't count for much - money talks...you know the rest.

I'm really pleased to read it all went well, and Dave Jaffer wrote a nice review. As for the anxious feelings , who wouldn't when one gave more or less 'birth' to it and you want to see it walk into the wide world. I will def. embrace it when it comes to Europe.
