VANISHING SAIL FILM WINS AWARD
Monday 5th October 2015

This award is a VERY BIG 'TING' because it represents the collective enthusiasm of a very cool and large festival. It is THE MOST respected recognition because the audience is the jury and our audience is growing in a wonderful organic way - very gratifying indeed to see this film is meaningful to so many people.

Our 3 simultaneous sold out screenings have been a very special and rewarding experience; with VS Ambassadors-at-Large Tom Gallant & Dan Moreland in Lunenburg, Justin Sihera in Amsterdam and myself in Trinidad all providing Q&A at the theaters.

These screenings are part of our journey to connect with people all over the world who share a passion for sailing & creating works of art.

At Ambacht in Beeld Festival our film was introduced jointly by Marianne van Dorst, from the Netherlands Open Air Museum, an institution that aims to preserve and bring to life aspects of Dutch culture before they are lost on the heels of progress and Alwyn's Dutch counterpart: Henk van Halteren, 7th generation shipwright and one of the last traditional boat builders in the Netherlands.

And at Lunenburg Doc Fest our film was 1 of 8 selected from 900 submissions from 97 countries!

"Vanishing Sail is an absolute undiluted soaring triumph. And perhaps, like Rachael Carsen’s seminal environmental book and warning, Silent Spring, Vanishing Sail might just hold off it’s titles own prediction, at least long enough for us to build a big schooner or two [and more sloops] and carry on and grow the next generation of boat builders, shipwrights and citizen sailors in the islands. As long as the easterly tradewinds blow so we can sail the islands. And fish and trade and bring a load back from St Barts or St Martin from time to time, maybe. An amazing palm fringed monument and a powerful work of art; Alexis and all who made it possible – thank you so much!!!!"

Daniel Moreland, Captain of the Tall Ship Picton Castle
