The running time of the full version of Eight Lessons In Living Together is, alas, a pretty big challenge for most film festivals. It's too long to be a snappy little short and only about half the expected length for a feature. So, the film only played at three festivals. However, it won awards at all three!

We won "Best Narrative Feature" at the Columbia Gorge International Film Festiva, "Best Screenplay" at the Ava Gardner Film Festival and "Best Director" and "Best Actress (Kendall Rileigh)" at the Sixth New Bern filmmakers Conference.

Some of the individual "lessons" have appeared in other festivals as well.

The film is available on DVD from the Turnip Store. You can also watch the trailer and all eight lessons; check out the menu above!
