Marinoni's world premiere was at Hot Docs in Toronto, garnering 2 standing ovations from a full house.
Hot Docs was also home to two amazing screenings at Scotia Bank.
Appologies to those who waited in the rain and did not get in...
Sometimes you wait on the corner thinking nobody will show up, and 30 minutes later, people are turned away at the door. Thank you Vancouver!
Funny what happens when you take a reclusive crafstman out of his workshop.
Cyclists are always keen to meet their maker.
Despite strong interest from cyclists, it's great that people of all walks enjoy the film. It is, after all, a human story.
It makes talking to Mr. Marinoni all the more charming when you find out that he tailored the suit he's wearing.
Always an honour to be on stage to present Marinoni, whether it's for 50 people or 500 people.
Mr. Marinoni has been diagnosed with poster-signingitus, and apparently it's the director's fault.
Wish the camera had a wide-angled lens for the amazing standing ovation at the Vancouver Playhouse!
Amazing turnout at RIDM in Montreal.
With 600 people at the 2nd RIDM screening, Mr. Marinoni was in the house to receive a well-deserved standing ovation.
Who would have thought that a smaller festival in Peterborough could gather 600 people for a screening of Marinoni? Wowsers!
He still doesn't think the poster for the french version looks like him.
Since the official release on March 27th, 2015, there has been over 300 screenings of Marinoni in Canada.
Despite strong interest from abroad, the idea has always been to start by giving the film strong roots in its home country of Canada.
It's been a true joy to see the smiles on people's faces once they see the film.
It's been a priviledge to play in some of Canada's finest venues, including Excentris in Montreal.
Vancity is also a world-class facility, home to the Vancouver Film Festival (and lots of nice people).
Screenings in Canada have ranged from big to small, including this nifty little bike shelter. It had to happen.
Sometimes you need to be creative and create your own venue.
This Gazebo behind a church made for a perfect summer screening.
It felt like movies should be shown in this Gazebo all summer long.
Sometimes you show up and, well, the fire trucks show up too...
Sometimes you take a gamble with the weather, and the reward is an amazing outdoor screening for a fundraiser.
Sometimes the best is to rent a 100 year-old theatre and make it come to life.
The stream of comments and questions from people after the film always make the trip worthwhile.
Sometimes you show up at a cinema and it doesn't look like the photos you saw online.
But then you're happy to find out that Marinoni beat out all the blockbusters on a Friday night.
See the white blinds? That's where a room full of people decided to spend a beautiful summer's eve.
It makes all the difference when the event organizers are classy and generous, as was the case in Almonte.
Sometimes a good cause like reclaiming old rural roads for cyclists becomes the drive for accepting a screening request.
But really, what's cooler that screening a film in a massive yurt!
Sometimes you expect 50 people to show up, and then out of nowhere comes magic in the form of 500 people.
Despite all the great adventures to date, the best thing about screening Marinoni is that...
Mr. Marinoni himself has not changed one bit since his story has made it to the big screen. If you're looking for him, he's out there riding bikes, or in his workshop building them.
