Conceiving Family was awarded Best Documentary Feature at the 7th Annual Women in Film Festival held at the VanCity Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Dancing with the Moon, a short animated documentary by local filmmaker, Katherine Pettit, was named Best Animation at the festival. These films premiered in Nelson together back in September 2011!
Also, we’re excited to share that Conceiving Family has been awarded the Royal Reel Award in Filmmaking at the Canadian International Film Festival.
Conceiving Family screened at the Adoption Awareness month kick-off event in Kelowna. The evening was coordinated by Maryann Fiske and her team at the Ministry of Child and Family Development. Mary McNeil, the Minister of Child and Family Development, created a video message to share prior to the screening. She was very supportive of the project and felt the message it sends about creating permanent families was a great fit for the Ministry of Child and Family Development.
