Triumph67 screens at the Twin Cities Arab Film Festival

Triumph67 screened at the Twin Cities Arab Film Festival, which I’ve been told is the second longest running Arab film festival in the country. It was well received and we had what I thought was a highly enjoyable question and answer session after the film with Mohannad Ghawanmeh, Jeremy Wilker, Heidi Haaland, and myself (Dan Tanz). It felt particularly gratifying to screen the film for an Arab audience and get their reactions. It was a true honor […Read more »]

3 Years since “wrap”

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 […Read more »]

We recently got the great news that the world premiere of TRIUMPH67 sold out at the Minneapolis – St. Paul International Film Festival (MSPIFF).

StarTribune article about TRIUMPH67 and kickstarter

The morning of the Oscars, TRIUMPH67 was featured in a StarTribune article about successful kickstarter projects. It even features our pal up in Brainerd, Phil Holbrook (@philontilt). Next year, maybe we’ll be in tuxedos!

Kickstarter Success!

Reflections on Flyway, Part 2

I wish I could go back and live the day one more time that we got to watch Triumph67 at the Flyway Film Festival, as a work in progress.  What a great venue (next to the wonderful pie shop), and what great company!  Many thanks to the filmmakers who stuck around and gave feedback.  The Lake and drive up were so beautiful, and I truly recommend this film festival to anyone in years to come, filmmaker and audiences alike.

I want […Read more »]

Reflections on Flyway

It is the day after the work in progress screening of Triumph67 at the Flyway Film Festival.

I drove down to Stockholm, Wisconsin with butterflies in my stomach, and had to stop at a Freedom station for something to soothe myself with.  I felt like a rare and endangered bird, stepping into a Freedom station on the boarder of Minnesota and Wisconsin wearing a fancy suit jacket, on the eve that the Vikings and the Packers played.  I bought a Lime […Read more »]

Kickstarter Campaign is a Go!!!

Late last night we kicked off a 30 day campaign at Kickstarter to raise funds for post-production and finishing costs.  We can do it, but we need help.  So please, contribute to Triumph67, the labor of love that we have poured everything into for the last 2 and a half years.  Our first day was a remarkable success, but we need to keep up the pace to achieve our goal.  Yes, YOU can support an independent film in your life.  […Read more »]
