Delighted to announce that EDIE won the international narrative film award at the Cleveland International film festival. This award voted for by the Cleveland festival audience picked what they considered the very best of the intentional movies showing at the festival this year.
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."
We are pleased to announce that EDIE has been selected for the 2018 CLEVELAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. The screenings will take place on April 6th, 7th, 8th. Tickets and exact showtimes can be found at the festival box office HERE. Simon will be introducing the movie and taking a question and answer session at the films close. Simon spent a year as an exchange student in at Seven Hills high school in Cincinnati so Ohio is close to his heart.
