What a wonderful week!
It's hard to describe the culmination of almost 4 years of work. "Thrilling" will have to do!
Neurotypical premiered to a packed house in Thessaloniki last Saturday - with Greek subtitles! The audience was engaged, laughed and cried at all the right parts, and most stayed for the Q&A afterwards. Amazing! It was humbling to be in the company of so many remarkable documentaries, each striving to educate and push for change. We can only hope that all future festivals for Neurotypical will be as memorable.
In many ways Thessaloniki is more of a beginning for Neurotypical than a conclusion. It marks the start of a dialogue toward the recognition of neurodiversity.
Oh, one more thing you might find interesting. While we didn't come home with any awards (which is besides the point), Neurotypical was 10th out of 98 films for the foreign feature audience award! Just saying...
