Dutch treat

Apologies to our Netherlandish friends for the title of this post. I know they hate that.

(Now here comes the save...) But it is a treat indeed to be selected for IDFA, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.

IDFA is the number one film festival for documentaries. Lovers of documentary and buyers of documentary gather from all corners of the earth to see 200 films shown over ten days of madness.

At IDFA, Who Killed Chea Vichea? will be in the section Reflecting Images: Panorama. We'll be up for the Volkskrant Audience Award against many of the best docs produced this year.

We're also one of ten films nominated by Amnesty International for the Movies That Matter Human Rights Award.

We've learned that all good news means more work (and more expense). Now we have to finish editing in the next few weeks, as the festival starts on November 20. Brad and Will get to spend longer hours in the editing room. And I get to add another logo to the site.

Not only that, but we get to go to Amsterdam! Well, given that airfare's running $700, some of us get to go. And I fear it's going to be Brad and Jeffrey, and not me.

Look for us, or them anyway, around November 22 in Amsterdam. Screening details will be posted here as soon as we know them.

Oh, I almost forgot—"laurels" are all the rage!
