Hey Folks – it’s been a while – it’s been busy round here!

Last week we wrapped OPEN CINEMA Season 10 with our 100th event to a great crowd!

Our hybrid event model continues to be very successful and fun! Our tweetchat reach continues to climb, which is very exciting! We topped a reach of 123,000, according to Hashtracking.com. Woah, that is an exponential jump from our March event, when we reached 85,000 tweeters. That’s almost 500% increase since we started our tweetchats in October 2012. Woah!

Our tweetchat numbers keep rising!

Our First Doc Bus Hybrid Event in Penticton

I’m so excited to share our hybrid event model with screening programs across the country! It looks like we’ll be able to showcase our innovative tools at our first stop in Penticton, BC! We’re planning a screening of Tiffany Shlain’s award-winning documentary Connected at the Shatford Arts Centre on June 4th. And now it looks like Jason Guille at Sunset Rooms wants to jump on the bus (so to speak!) and coordinate a simultaneous screening of the film here in Victoria! So we’re working out how the virtual connections will work…More details about that shortly.

Meanwhile, I’m up to my ears in trip planning, Westy modifications, reaching out to funders and sponsors, connecting with documentary lovers and programs across the country. Aieeee, so busy! Lots more to share, so please expect more posts in the next few days!

PS Have you seen our crowdfunding video yet?
