Trip to San Diego

Hey everyone!

Last week, Carl flew to California for a few days to represent the team at the San Diego Film Festival. It was a great opportunity to promote the film, meet new people and even answer some questions from the audience during a Q & A – all in all, a very pleasant first presence outside Montreal. Unfortunately, Le Gouffre didn’t win, but congratulations to The Dam Keeper, which won the award for best animated film!

We have two new festival selections to present this week. First, we are pleased to announce that it will be possible once again to watch the film in Montreal at the SPASM festival this October 24th. You can already come here to get your ticket!

SPASM Festival 2014
Montreal, Canada – October 23-November 1st

Also, the film was selected at the Kino Fest in Romania. This announcement comes a little late since the presentation has already taken place, but we wanted to share it with you anyway.
