It was a full house at the theatre in Strathclair, Manitoba, where my film played with two other short films shot around the area as part of a “triple bill”. It was an honour to finally show the local community, Very Good Dirt. Many of the people I interviewed for the film attended including: Bruce Nichol, Gayleen Stimpson, John Thompson, Agnes Bridge, and Jack and Margaret Boyd. Big thanks to Neil Gamey and the Strathclair Theatre Committee for volunteering their time to make this special night happen.
