2007 AIFI Festival Overview


On Friday, November 9, 2007, Making the River screened before a nearly sold out crowd at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. The Muckleshoot Canoe Family sat in the crowd to show support, business leaders from Silicon Valley and at risk youth were also in attendance. The film director and producers, Sarah Del Seronde and Paul Stoll, were on hand to answer questions about the year and half collaboration of Aboriginal Lens and Fluffy Bear Production. And Jimi Simmons and Karen Rudolph were met with a standing ovation when the film closed and faded to black.

Making the River was nominated for 2007 Best Documentary at the American Indian Film Festival. It was in good company with Miss Navajo and Our Land, Our Life. This was the first screening for Making the River and if the audience was any indication of what lies ahead , this film might have longevity on the festival circuit.
