ALA wins two awards at Docuwest: The Audience Award and Best Medium Length Film

Uncategorized on July 23rd, 2010 1 Comment

It was an early morning email about a week after the festival that let us know that the final tally had been counted. Hanging chads

were not mentioned as the reason for the delay, but we didn’t complain.  It’s much better getting an email like that than a festival rejection (not that we’ve had any of those)

It certainly added to what was already a great festival experience in Colorado.

A Life Ascending had also won the best medium length film of the festival as voted on by the jury during the festival.

In the end  close to 350 people saw the film and it proved to be the real launch of the film into the world.  Lake Placid was a little less organized.

Our first Docuwest screening was held at the American Mountaineering Museum which was a nice

twist of fate.  I had some old friends come by and my kids were there to ask probing questions at the Q and A. (“Dad, how much did the movie cost?)

I particularly enjoyed the responses from people who don’t live in or travel in mountains. They seemed most

taken by the life of this family.
