As you may have heard Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism premiered at the Toronto Kids International Film Festival.
The cinemas were packed and the people who came seemed to really like the film. They came out talking about hypnotism and Molly and the movie. It seemed that they loved it.
Luckily, before I went to Toronto, I had managed to find the prop book from the film, the old, red book called Hypnotism, An Ancient Art that Molly finds in the Briersville library. People loved that.
Next time I will take the stuffed pug that the crew used as a pretend Petula when the actor dog, Lola couldn’t be on set.
The movie will be heading to Bentonville International Film Festival BIFF and Seattle International Film Festival SIFF next.
SQUIFF SNIFF WHIFF festivals too. These ones I made up. It seems all film festivals end in IFF (International Film Festival).
Soon it will be all over the world. I cannot wait for you to see it.
By the way, if a kids’ film festival comes your way, go.
Film festivals show brilliant films… and obscure ones from far away places like Mongolia or Tahiti or Timbuctu that you might never see otherwise… These quite often have subtitles but you soon get used to reading what the actors are saying. Though there are lots of films in English too. Often you can see a film way before it comes out in the cinema.
Hope you are having a good day where ever you are.
