Two sold out shows & packed theaters, old friends coming out to support, and a chilly morning bike ride - Denver, you put on quite the film festival! But the thing I’m most grateful for is this lady standing up here with me, @jennygnichols. Collaborating with you is always such a treat, and sharing this experience with has been so special to me. Thank you for all the support, wisdom, and giggles. This film would not be what it is if you had not said “yes” to it so many years ago.
Great news Denver - one more screening today at Sie Film Center at 2pm. And get this, Jenny will be there to answer your questions!
Thanks for the photo @dimagibaphoto

Nothing better than getting out of service for a few days to play on a lake with some amazing pals - ROSS LAKE 2018!!!
@afghancycles won AUDIENCE CHOICE this weekend at @tasveerseattle!! I can't tell you what it means to hear that your film has resonated with viewers, and that's a testament to the women profiled in Afghan Cycles. So to each of you brave enough to share your story, thank you for trusting us and for letting us into your lives for the past 5 years. Your passion and courage is inspiring audiences everywhere, and this award is proof of that. Frozan, Mariam, Zahra, Zakia, Nahid, Masoma, Nazifa, Tahira - This is for all of you!
Another successful weekend for the #festivalblazer - huge thanks to @tasveerseattle for a great screening yesterday! After all the support you’ve shown me and this film over the years, it was an honor to finally share @afghancycles with the South Asian Film Festival here in Seattle. Next up: Bellingham on Saturday for Doctober, can’t wait!
Like many, I’m moving through the world with a heavy heart today as I process and reconcile the plight for women in our country right now. Women’s voices need to be heard, and they need to be trusted. I couldn’t think of a better place to go today as I work through everything swirling in my head, than the @womensportsfilm festival in San Francisco. I feel honored to be able to amplify the voices of courageous women both in Afghanistan (@afghancycles) and here in the States (@themirnavator). This weekend, I will fight my every urge to curl up in bed and sob, and will instead celebrate all the brave women I know, feeling grateful to have them in my life inspiring me every single day.
So excited for the Port Townsend Film Festival (@ptfilmfest) this weekend where BOTH @afghancycles AND @themirnavator will be screening! If you’re in the area, check out ptfilmfest.com for screening times. Hope to see you there!

It’s amazing how much a single piece of mail can change your day. Thank you so much @siffnews - Receiving the hardware brings back all the same emotions of gratefulness and pride as the day it was announced. On behalf of the whole @afghancycles crew, thank you!
Sailing with @benidoerr this weekend was such a treat! Thank you @sailbainbridge!!

Just coming off a kickass weekend in Whitefish, MT where one of my favorites got married.
OMG @naimenansen, you’re MARRIEEEED —> got the prettiest date in @bailey_k —> Oliviaaaaaa!!! —> twining hard with my pal Jabes (@jberry17) —> Naime Waime got HITCHED!! —> Hot dad alert! —> the crew takes in Big Mountain —> look out ladies, those blue eyes’ll get you —> very deserving of a midday beer when you’ve got a new born keeping you up
@bailey_k started her new job with the @soundersfc this week, and it’s so exciting to see her in her element. Earlier this summer I asked her what what she wanted to be when she was a kid. A professional soccer player, she replied. I’d say that the Marketing Manager of the Sounders is a pretty good manifestation of that childhood dream.
Turns out pickle ball is the greatest sport ever invented.

Missed @afghancycles at @siffnews last month? Or maybe just want to see it again?? After getting a Jury Special Mention, we have another screening tomorrow night as part of the Best of Fest line up of films. Head over to the SIFF box office at www.siff.net. Hope to see you there!!
