Thanks to everyone who came down to the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival (MSPIFF) last night. The pre-party at Aster Cafe was packed, and a real treat to see so many friends, family, and fans of Triumph67. It was also great to see the stars of the film come out, including Kareem Aal, Sarah Martens, Adam Elsafy, Doug Larison, Mohannad Ghawanmeh, and the list goes on…
The World Premiere was SOLD OUT, and the audience response was wonderful, and so gratifying to hear after so much love and effort went into the making of this film. Watching the sparking summer scenery really from Jeremy Wilker’s stunning cinematography really helped anesthetize against the snow that started coming down when the after-party began in the tent, but once we got inside it was warmly heated, stocked with high class hors d’oeuvres and full of positive energy and great music. I never would have guessed that Stone Temple Pilots would have sounded so good on the vibraphone.
It was wonderful to see supporters from our hugely successful kickstarter campaign come out to see what they had helped create, and it was a real treat to have internationally acclaimed film director, Hisham Bizri attend the world premiere, among other locally acclaimed artists, including Melody Gilbert, Phil Holbrook, and others.
A huge thank you to Lacey Criswell and her highly professional team who photographed the event (among others), and another huge thank you to Clever Kate O’Reilly for helping with promotions, PR, and sales.
And mostly, thank you for your interest in Triumph67, the film that made all of this possible.
