Fredette says he and the Veer crew are, “pretty excited,” by the Victoria invite because “it’s a respected festival.” He adds that many of the documentaries shown at Victoria last year did “very well” in distribution and were picked up by major cable movie channels like Showtime and others.
Fredette is also looking forward to the Victoria festival because he hopes its west coast location means that fans from Portland and Vancouver BC will show up and support the film. This is the first festival to accept Veer. Fredette has submitted the film to several other festivals with the hopes of getting it noticed and landing a distribution deal.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
