Hard to believe it's been over a month since Rich Kids World Premiered at the Houston Latino Film festival! Again, we'd like to give a big thanks to the organizers and crew-- all of whom were great, hospitable, and kind. Big shout out to Pedro Rivas for discussing the film on Houston Public Media and KHOU.
To a say it was a tremendous experience would be an understatement. For the actors and crew, the festival screening was their first time ever viewing the film. For Laura and the production team, it was our first time watching the movie with a full audience in a theater. So many emotions! It validated all the hard work that had been put in by all those who soldiered on so diligently during all stages of the process. Also, the premiere ushered in the next phase of the project-- getting Rich Kids out into the world!
The screening was followed by an audience Q&A and discussion which focused on the realization of the project, how we got such wonderful actors, and the representation of Latinos in film today.
Again, thanks to all involved. We look forward at bringing Rich Kids back to Texas in the near future.
