It’s been a busy month for our little documentary.

One of the best things about making This Place Called Nuka was getting to know the incredible people at the center of the documentary. So maybe it’s fitting that when we flew 1,300 miles to see our film at the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival, what made the trip indelible was the people we met: the festival directors and staff, filmmakers and attendees, baristas and bartenders and hikers, every single one of the unfailingly welcoming people of Flagstaff. And also, yeah, hikes in the Grand Canyon and Sedona—those were pretty good, too. We made a little travelogue of our time in the desert. Scroll down to watch.

 

Spokane International Film Festival - Best Short

 

We couldn’t make the trip to Eastern Washington to attend the 20th annual Spokane International Film Festival, but we sure were excited to learn that audiences there chose This Place Called Nuka as the festival’s best short film from the US and Canada. Thank you, Spokane!
