Edie packed out the theatres in Cleveland, Ohio for the 42nd Cleveland International film Festival. Simon did a Q and A and introduced EDIE to sell out Ohio audiences in three separate screenings. The film was so popular that the festival doubled the amount of screenings to six. On two separate days director Simon Hunter was racing from one packed screening to another. Simon comments, "it was insane, so many people wanted to see the movie and you learn how important good word of mouth is. That doubled our audience overnight."
