What an amazing run! My last posting here in THE MOUNTAIN THIEF BLOG was last March 2010, when the film was just about to have its World Premiere in San Francisco! We had an AMAZING RUN ever since, I had been mostly updating and putting up news in our FACEBOOK PAGE, and trying to build a following for the film there. For those of you who don’t have a Facebook account here is the summary of our most amazing 2010 film festival run!

1. THE MOUNTAIN THIEF won the Special Jury Award in San Francisco in its World premiere (photo above).
2. We were selected to play in Europe, Canada and the U.S. in 12 film festivals so far— San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Los Angeles AP Film Festival, Festival De Cine Asiatica de Barcelona, Silk Screen Film Festival, NY Asian American International Film Festival, CCIIFF Lempaut, France, DC APA Film Festival, San Diego Asian Film Festival, Vancouver Asian Film Festival, Chicago Filipino-American Film Festival, Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival.
3. We won 3 awards, The Special Jury Award in SFIAAFF, The Audience Award in CCIIFF in the south of France, The George C. Lin Emerging Filmmaker Award at the DC-APA.

The film was well received in all of these cities with rave reviews, and I will be sharing soon. We are now in a position to make more impact and as I promised, we will be re-starting THE MOUNT HOPE PROJECT and we are pursuing a lot of opportunities to make more change and continue to touch lives.
