The Princess of Selkirk Avenue

This past week was a flurry of film festivals. Thank you to everyone for their support (whether you came out to a screening or sent along good thoughts and encouragement). The film had a wonderful response from both audiences – it is lovely to hear people laugh at all the right places – and we couldn’t be more pleased.


We’ll let you know when the next screening happens.

Lots of love! And lots of thanks!
