Clean Freak's First Festival Invitation

Clean Freak is officially a festival film. Nat Dykeman, director of the Lake County Film Festival in Illinois, called me tonight as I was driving three of my four kids to church and informed me that the film will screen there in late February/early March. I hope he could hear my excitement over all the in-car singing.

He also asked me if it was, in fact, a straight documentary or a mockumentary. Yes, it is.

Yaaay!!! Congratulations! I knew you'd make it. This is just the start. And when "Clean Freak" becomes a real hit, Nat Dykeman will be able to brag that he was the first to accept it.

Though expected, this is great news. :)

Congrats. I suppose categories will be especially difficult for this one, as films are being judged and awarded in various groups. Hmmmm....

Is there a festival with a Documentary That Sometimes Drifts into Mockumentary But ALL in Service of a Real Issue For a Real Person category?

Dan -- that's the exact category it's entered in. Weird how you knew that.

Jonathan -- Thanks for your continued support. I'm relieved. My last film went through about 10-15 rejections before its first acceptance, and it was tough to take! Getting into a fest quickly like this makes me think I am either getting better at this (probably not) or I know a lot more people now (or they know me) ;-)
