I want to see this documentary! It is fascinating to discuss the pros and cons of new technology, especially to hear the honest opinions of those who intimately know both mediums and can compare.

When oh when will it be in Canada?

Me,too!!! So happy that Keanu's documentary gets so many good reviews, he has a good eye for original ideas and SXS sounds very interesting...

US premiere is at Tribeca FF in April but I remember reading somewhere the general release will be in the summer, hope this helps...

Yes, the documentary seems appreciated world wide, especially by young people in filming business. I think they realize that they are at this changing point. Maybe they didn't see it before, and through documentaries like this they realize that they are probably the last who still can experience both ways of filming, since digital filming will be the future, and the photochemical is on a way to cease to exist. They sure love to hear the comments and oppinions of famous directors and producers (who are inspiring examples for many of them), which gives the documentary a special "personal" touch. And maybe it awoke their interest for the old fashioned way of filming a bit more.

Good point FriedGreenTomatoes! It might be available for viewing at TIFF (Toronto Film Festival) in September, but the Tribeca press release says they have "acquired North American rights" which seems to preclude that.

The press release goes on to say "In addition to Tribeca Film’s multi-platform rollout, the filmmakers plan a broadcast premiere early next year and will bring the film to college campuses and film schools to continue the conversation."

I signed up for updates at the official website http://sidebysidethemovie.com/ so I'll hear about Canadian dates.

So far the only dates posted are March 24th Asian release in Hong Kong and April 24th North American release at Tribeca.

I have all my fingers and toes crossed, if that helps at all.

I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to see it.

I'm really happy that Side By Side is receiving the accolades it has. To me it's a reflexion of what goes on "inside the suit". ;0)

Awards or no, this film will be talked about for a looonnnnnnng time. Nice that it will be part of a post-secondary curriculum; as it should be.
