The Defector Nominated for Banff World Media Festival Award, following Success at HotDocs!
After three sold out screenings of The Defector: Escape from North Korea, our Canadian premiere at Hot Docs has come to a close. We would like to thank everyone that came out, all those in the line-ups spanning around the block, and in the packed audiences. The amazing reception has made this our most successful premiere yet!
We had lots of outstanding press from The CBC, CTV News Canada, Global News, The Toronto Star, and Random House as well as some great response from blogs such as Film Army, Exclaim!, and Next Projection. Plus POV Magazine published a piece by Ann Shin about her journey alongside the defectors on their way to freedom.
