Last night Hello World had its festival premiere at the Calgary International Film Festival in the prestigious Alberta Spirit Gala, showcasing the best of Alberta's brewing filmmakers. Lucky enough to be shocked and awed by a wide variety of stories, styles and ideas, a live jury deliberated during a post-show Q&A and then awarded the Enbridge Alberta Spirit Award to Hello World.
Honoured to even be considered amongst some great stories by friends, it was amazing to be recognized for the incredibly long journey 10 minutes of screen time can take.

Thanks again to all those that supported Hello World over the last year and half. Cast, crew, family & friends: I couldn't have done it without you.
