This summer marks the third anniversary of wrapping the Triumph67 shoot. So much has happened since then for the filmmakers, the cast and crew, and in independent film as a whole.
Triumph67 won an honorable mention at the Minneapolis St. Paul International film festival, and screened to sold out crowds. Lavish praise for the film was mentioned on MPR, and the producers had a great interview on KFAI staple, Art Matters. Colin Covert of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Chris Hewitt of the St. Paul Pioneer Press had great things to say about the film, going so far as to call it “poignant and moody… recalls Blow Up…” and “a handsomely shot psychological drama, respectively.
So where is Triumph67 now, and when will it be screened next?
DSLR filmmaking has made independent film even more accessible to up and coming filmmakers, the market has been supersaturated with DIY films, and festivals have become more competitive than ever. Where did this leave Triumph67, a thoughtful and understated work with a focus on characters who have been misrepresented traditionally in Hollywood?
These are all questions we have been pondering. We are sending the film out to the next round of festivals, preparing to launch into the promotional campaign necessary to build an audience and convince people of what we already know: Triumph67 is a film that sticks with you, and begs for a dialogue between viewers, long after its last image fades from the screen.
We’re looking forward to the next round of festivals, and to upcoming new projects from the cast and crew. Until then, remember to keep checking back for when the official film release becomes available for our dear fans and supporters.
