I only submitted our first two films (G.I. Hospital and Gonna Be a Soldier) to festivals, because I didn’t want to turn it into a competition between the films. I merely wanted to make the point that there is an appetite for the material and an interest in the topic. As of early 2018, “Hospital” had been in 35 festivals, and “Soldier” had been in 45. (I began festival submissions for the two films in August and September 2016, respectively.)
