Heart of the Festival: Vectors of Autism

Vectors of Autism: A Documentary about Laura Nagle was screened at the Sedona International Film Festival last week.

Yesterday it received the  Heart of the Festival Award!

I find it beautifully metaphorical that when our film about autism didn’t quite fit in, the festival created a new category so that Vectors was honoured for its sensitivity and its powerful message without changing a thing.

They accommodated our film and created a whole new award.

Now we just need a little more of life imitating art…
