Karen and the Hot Docs gong!

Best International Documentary Feature at Hot Docs

What a week - our first ever trip to Hot Docs in Toronto for the World Premiere of The Closer We Get.

We screened twice to fantastic audiences - laughter, a few tears and many insightful questions afterwards for myself and our editor Alice who travelled out with me.

Then came the award ceremony evening at the wondrously-named 'Shangri-La' hotel, when we heard we'd won the top prize - amazing! Luckily a friendly producer took care of my glass award for the rest of the evening for me (thanks Dewi!) as it went a bit hazy after that...

We met so many fantastic film-makers and film fans it really was quite overwhelming, but a wonderful start to the film's life. We can't wait to tell you about the UK premiere, which we can do in a few weeks time, so do watch this space !
