The saying goes "when it rains, it pours" and April has not been shy of showers. I had already been working remotely for a few weeks when my husband and I were both self-quarantining due to COVID-19. Needless to say, I was saddened to learn that many festivals would not host live events. The festival circuit provides a backdrop for me, audiences, and other filmmakers to interact with each other and share our passion for film. Despite this disappointment, I would rather play it safe and wait until there are better measures in place to secure everyone's safety.
In April I learned that Happily Married After had officially made it to the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. It was also in April that I found out the Reel Comedy Fest had also picked Happily Married After as an official selection.
The Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival will be showing feature length and short films from
May 15th through May 23rd. Tickets are currently on sale. As its first virtual festival, MSPIFF39 screenings will be geo-location based. There has been some great feedback from virtual festival goers so far.
As we continue to stay indoors for general safety, residents in the Twin Cities metro area can watch Happily Married After at MSPIFF39. If you're more into the dramatic flair, you can watch our original short film 911 now available on YouTube and Amazon Prime.
