So glad to hear you've picked up Fireworks! I saw it (twice!) at the
Toronto Film Festival where I work as a programmer. It was easily my
favourite film of the whole fest. The screening in a 900 seat theatre was
truly a treat. Each film is a continual improvement from the last. Kids
Return just had a short but successful run in a travelling selection of
contemporary Asian films and has been picked up for video release by a
local Toronto company called Mongrel Media. Not sure if those rights extend
into the States or not.
Congratulations and good luck!
