In early September, Sunday & I had the great honour of travelling into the rocky mountains of Colorado, Denver to present our short film Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow at the 44th Telluride Film Festival 2017.
Tomorrow had its international premiere in the 'Student Prints' edition of the 'Filmmakers of Tomorrow' program described by the festival as "the best in student-produced film from around the world."
The undisputed force behind this film, Sunday represented Tomorrow to the great encouragement and excitement of audiences and industry; it was beyond special to present the film at such a supportive festival. The town was infectiously excited about what Oscar breakouts Telluride would discovering this year—12 months after Moonlight (2017) started its journey from the same spot. Indeed, Barry Jenkins was the real ringmaster of the festival, and it was an honour to be a guest among his shorts program.
For a film that boldly examines the representation of women in contemporary culture, the significance of the stories we tell, and the personal cost of making great art—Tomorrow had resonance.
(We screened prior to the Weinstein headlines breaking…to programmer Greg Nava especially—enormous gratitude for your backing).
Headlining feature films that premiered at Telluride in 2017 included Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool starring Annette Bening, Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water and Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow screened in the USA after it was ‘Highly Commended’ at Sydney Film Festival in June 2017, where it had its world premiere as a finalist in the Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films.
To our tireless cast, crew and supporters, this one was for you.
