MANNA in MEXICO — Manna del Cielo!
The filmmaking sisters and their partner parents were invited to the Mexico City Int’l Film Festival to speak about new ways to distribute films in theaters. Other panelists included Goldwyn, IFC Films, Sony, and Canadian companies. The festival was amazing, with fantastic parties, great films, appreciative crowds. The company had a delightful time. MANNA got a standing ovation from its screenings, subtitled beautifully by Juan Jacob (email us for his contact info).
