Sorry it’s been so long since we updated last. Can you believe it? another film festival:
The IIFF has chosen the following films for showing in this year’s festival. We apologize for our tardiness in finalizing the selections, but we’ve had some problems to overcome…and we have. These films are selected because of their excellence but also because of the way they complement other films in the festival.
Thanks so much to everyone for submitting your films. We’re honored that you’ve chosen the IIFF to exhibit your work. We believe that we’re going to have another great festival.
Congratulations to the whole Fair Trade movie crew! July 17-19, 2009.

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will remember Racheal Mofya, a Zambian exchange student who was injured badly in the September 2008 Chatsworth Metrolink train crash. She was also an intern with Anti-Body. Tamara and Shelby spoke of their deep concern for Racheal, with all of the injuries that she had from the crash. Miraculously, she survived, and the L.A. Times has a story on her progress today.
Everyone at The Fair Trade movie continues to wish her a complete recovery.
We heard from the organizers of the Lowell Film Festival, which happened last weekend:
We had a fabulous turnout for your film, and for the entire festival in general. It was a rousing success! We had so much fun giving out your samples of lip balm — everyone was so surprised and delighted to receive them. What a nice touch it was to the event.
I made a personal introduction to the film, and got quite moved doing so. I have been so inspired by your story, Tamara, and was so grateful that you and Lauralee chose to share it with the world.
We also found coverage of the festival (including mention of The Fair Trade movie) in the Nashua Telegraph.
Thanks for all the support!
You can now get The Fair Trade movie just about anywhere. We just found out that Blockbuster Video is now carrying it online, so you can rent it if you have a membership (good rating so far too! — please rate us if you are a member of Blockbuster).
