Well, it was great news for the July 11th Melbourne premiere of Kissing Paris at ACMI.
More than 99% capacity, which overwhelmed ACMI who were not expecting this at all. Alot of great feedback and there was a Q&A with Director Anna Kannava afterwards where apparently she read out an entire list of names of people who contributed to the film. I sadly couldn't be there but most of the Melbourne cast and crew were to lend their support. Thanks to all those who did come to see the film. I don't want to name anybody because the list is to vast and numerous and I don't want to forget anybody. I very much appreciated it as did Anna.
Sadly, ever since KP premiered at the Brisbane Fest in 2008 I have not be able to attend any of the public screenings as I live in Paris. So lets cross our fingers that another festival will pick it up, hopefully somewhere in Europe so that I would be able to see KP on the big screen.
So, anyway, peoples, you will find below an article that appeared in the 16th July 2009 edition of The Star Great Dandenong Newspaper. My local "rag", local because I was born and grew up in the impressive Noble Park. I very nice write-up but unfortunately it appeared AFTER the Melbourne screening of Kissing Paris. But choosers can't be beggers.
Feel free to post any comments if you did attend the Melbourne Screening - hopefully constructive feedback as I would love to know what you think of the film. If you do want to see the film screen anywhere else, well, hell demand it!@@
J'espere que il aura un petit projection a Paris bientot. Peut-etre un festival du film quelquepart.
