We are proud to announce we won Lunenburg Doc Fest! This was such a wonderful film festival, thank you so much for selecting our film and for honoring it with this award. Lunenburg is truly a special town and everyone's enthusiasm for Documentary film was inspiring. Thank you Lunenburg!
We are all a little bit in shock today! There were a lot of really good doc's screening at the Middlebury New Filmmaker's Festival and we are really humbled to be taking home Best Doc. Best part is we get to keep this guy. Say hello to "The VTeddy". We love it! Thank you Middlebury, what a great festival and a beautiful town.
It is always interesting to see where the film is going to land next. This time it is Lunenburg, Nova Scotia! A beautiful pictruesque harbor town on the east coast of Nova Scotia that also has a serious love of documentary film. We are excited to take part in this documentary only festival (our kind of festival!) and looking forward to attending! Thank you Lunenburg. See you soon.

It's incredible to think that the year is already more then half over! What an amazing 7 months it's been for Omo Child: The River and the Bush.

We will be in Europe and other international locations soon so please stay tuned for more on that. We have won 9 awards from Best Documentary, Best Cinematograph

We are really looking forward to attending as the whole crew can be in attendance. Should be a great day, hope you can join us.
