This weekend, We Are Legion wrapped up its Canadian run, after playing for two weeks in theatres across Toronto, Victoria, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. The documentary was met with positive reviews from the Canadian press, including the Winnipeg Free Press, Canadian Dimension, and O.Canada.com.
At the same time, We Are Legion played at two special engagements. After a great three-day run at the Seattle International Film Festival this June, the film was brought back for a special engagement at the organization’s beautifully restored theatre SIFF Cinema Uptown, for a weekend engagement. The documentary also played to a large audience in Manchester, at a screening held by Kino Indie Features. Filmmaker Brian Knappenberger was present (via Skype) for a Q&A with the audience, following the UK screening.
We Are Legion has had its first of three screenings at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. IDFA, the world’s largest documentary film festival, celebrates its 24th anniversary this year. The prestigious festival averages 120,000 visitors each year. It continues through this weekend, with additional performances of We Are Legion on Thursday and Sunday. For more information, please check out the IDFA website.
