Just before that, on Saturday, November 12th, Life on the Douro will be showing at the Toronto International Portuguese Film Festival http://www.portuguesefilmfestival.com/en/synopsis.html
and the following Saturday, November 19th, at Paso Robles Film Festival (exact time TBA) - http://www.pasoroblesfilmfestival.com/

I'll be attending the Paso Robles Film Festival with Roy Hersh, but unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to Toronto. Looking ahead, there will be an event in Cologne on December 4. Directing this film has been one of the great experiences of my life, the Douro is one of the wonders of the world that should be seen at least once in a lifetime, and Portugal is a country that deserves to be much better known.
