This fall, Biophilic Design has been on a world tour - from the Dominican Republic to Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne, where the festival organizer emailed Steve and I to say:
I just thought I would write to let you know that "Biophilic Design" was our first true sellout in the 3 years we have been running the film festival, with over 220 attending! We have come close before, but have never been standing room only.... More importantly, the crowd responded really positively to it, and pushed the discussion that followed the screening well into the time we had allocated for the next session.
Next stop is Istanbul, where the film will be presented at the Sustainable Living Film Festival 2012, which will take place between November 29th - December 2nd in Italian Cultural Center and Pera Museum Auditorium. Stay tuned for more details or find out more at http://www.surdurulebiliryasam.org/
