In a recent Boston Globe article commemorating the Festival's 20th year, Program Director Basil Tsiokos recommended Almost There as one of the highlights of the festival, describing it as "about an outsider artist whom the filmmakers discover and then become enmeshed in his life... it's a very smart film not only about this artist but about the process of filmmaking and the relationship between the filmmaker and the subject."
Almost There will continue traveling the U.S. this summer and fall, with another Indiana screening confirmed for the Indy Film Fest, which takes place July 17 to 26. Stay tuned for details for this Indianapolis screening.
Almost There's award-winning, audience-pleasing festival run so far was also recently profiled in the Times of Northwest Indiana, the local newspaper of the film's star Peter Anton. Dmitry Samarov from Belt Magazine, which focuses on the Midwestern Rust Belt, calls the film "a searing portrait of postindustrial Indiana as it attempts to resurrect itself after decades of neglect." Co-director Dan Rybicky adds, "It's a human story and meditation on the way people take care of each other, yet it ends in a quietly satisfying way."
