Butterflies Wins Its 1st Award!

First of all, let me thank all of you for your constant support and if you did make it to our World Premiere, I hope you enjoyed the film.
I would like to start by announcing that Butterflies walked out from AOF International Film Festival with The Alan J. Bailey AOF Award of Excellence for Documentary Filmmaking!!!!
We were also nominated for Best Social Commentary 2009, but this Award went to the amazing Victory of the Underdog. I honestly believe this film fully deserved it as all proceeds from this film go to animal shelters around the USA. Please, do check this film out if you get a chance.
But, back to Butterflies ☺
The Alan J. Bailey Award is given out at the end of the night and I have honestly not expected to be even considered for this honor.
When it was announced, that the award goes to me, Ester Brym for Butterflies, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
I had no speech prepared and I might have not thanked everyone I meant to.
I might have also not said everything that I would wanted to, but the important thing is that Butterflies has been recognized as truly great film.
Everybody who helped me and worked on the film shares this honor.
If you are interested in seeing Butterflies, we are going to screen in New York City in September and in Philadelphia in October 2009. There are other dates coming and all info is being posted on the film’s website at www.ButterfliesTheMovie.com .
Please, check in there on regular basis or sign up for the mailing list to keep informed.
