Thank you for taking notice of my film, "On Native Soil: The Documentary of the 9/11 Commission Report. It did indeed have a qualifying run... check out the dates at this link: http://www.laemmle.com/viewmovie.php?mid=1558
You are correct about the festivals, unfortunately, we did not go to any. Thankfully, the film is finally going to be seen and it is getting great reviews. Court TV is airing an 88 minute version--commercial free on Monday August 21st at 10p ET/PT, 9p CT. Lionsgate purchased the film and is releasing the full 119 minute version on DVD (plus extras.) I would still like to see it released theatrically. Feel free to let Lionsgate know if you would like that too! Check out the review in the NY Post and at Reuters..a few samples of how it's being received.

Linda, thanks so much for writing. I do stand corrected. I had, in fact, talked to someone who thought they remembered your film playing a qualifying run, but I couldn't find anything, so I failed to update this post.

I'm curious about your not playing festivals as this seems like such a high profile film - an important subject, narrated by two Oscar winners. Can you talk about that at all? Seems that after your shortlisting you probably were invited to festivals, no?
