The Black Balloon release

After a big win in Berlin, we're now going to the Australian premiere on Wednesday. Then it releases (in Australia) March 6th. Pretty exciting times. I've heard a good bit about the Berlin experience, and it sounds like it was long days and well into the night with "functions".

They've got their website up. Have a look: www.theblackballoonmovie.com View the trailer there, and get a feel for what it's all about.

There's been a lot of press like this:
In a triumphant showing by any international standards, three Australian films have won accolades at the Berlin Film Festival. Elissa Down's The Black Balloon, which was selected to open the Generation14plus section for teenage audiences, was also awarded the Crystal Bear for best feature by the section's jury of young film buffs.

I've yet to see anything bad about the film, and that's a good thing. It seems to have pretty broad appeal. Spread the word.

(note to self: "Premier" is somebody. "Premiere" is an event. My editor is back from Berlin.)
