While BLIFF is not yet over for the year – one more weekend to go; ends this weekend December 13th! – our part in it is over, as we screened on Sunday. And it took us this long to recover…

Cast member Arthur Pellman drove to Boston from NYC and joined us for the exhibition of the film and the Q&A!

Big thanks to Festival Director/Founder José Barriga and Programming Director Erin Scheffler for their support of the film and for being truly gracious and generous hosts.

Thank you also to the rest of the festival staff and volunteers who worked so hard on our behalf: especially Hospitality Coordinators Yvonne Ng and Wanda Droz, and Cynthia Barnes, BLIFF’s unofficial Queen of Twitter. Thanks to her efforts, she got word of the screening out to literally thousands of people in the Boston area.

Special thanks also go to Darren Garnick of the New England Film Junkie of the Boston Herald, who wrote a great intro to the column he asked us to write as guests; Marc Jacques of the Canadian Consulate in Boston, who promoted the film with a press release and stills that went out to thousands of members on their membership list; and Evonne Wetzner, proprietor of The Video Underground, clearly the coolest indie video store (& small summer screening venue!) in Boston, who let us come in and be-flyer and be-button her store.
And did we mention Festival sponsors José’s restaurant? Great warm casual atmosphere in Cambridge, and some of the friendliest proprietors and staff you could meet… we were flattered they placed our flyers and buttons top spot where their menus normally go… 

Audience for our screening was quite full; enthusiastic and asked intelligent questions. Sign of a good festival. Our only regret is that we’re not still there and screening there again this weekend.

    I enjoyed being at the festival and seeing Sam and Chris, meeting Jose and Erin, and the libations did not hurt.
    My best regard to all who worked on the film.

    Hello fellow Canadians! It was wonderful sharing this BLIFF weekend with you guys. Great to see the Devil and is leaving a trail (tail) of success behind him. As I said, we have to work on bringing this film to Montreal.
    And what a picture of José and Erin (you’re right, Samantha, what a beautiful looking couple) super kind and generous, too.
    Take care, keep up the good work, and stay in touch.

    Gracias Nicolas
    Pleasure meeting you, and what about people in Toronto seeing your beautiful documentary ‘Don Policarpo & I: Travels with a Puppeteer’? Or wouldn’t it be nice if we could reunite at the Latino festival in San Diego?!
    Hasta pronto…

    So great to hear the festival was a success for The Devil’s Tail family. And it’s so great to see Arthur’s face again, even if only in a picture.
    Congratulations, yet again…
    Where’s the next festival?

    Wow! It just gets better & better. The newest poster design is terrific – keep those laurels coming! I’ll keep checking on The Devil’s progress.
