“It’s been an incredible journey,” director Andrew Cividino admits. Ever since his film Sleeping Giant debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, it’s been very well received everywhere its been, from the Toronto International Film Festival, to the 29 countries and 45 festivals where it screened around the world. Then, the indie success story topped itself thanks to Toronto audiences who recently helped the film earn North America’s highest film per screen average during its opening weekend.
Pretty much everyone I know has wild weeks, with more things going on than there generally seems time to deal with. The thing that always amazes me is just how many different things I seem to get involved with some weeks. It’s not just that I’m busy, but I’m busy with a wild mix of things almost every week, and I love it.
