It’s finally here, the moment we have all been waiting for: The Golden Pen’s Canadian TV premiere:
- OMNI-2 in Ontario on Sunday, May 20 at 9 p.m. in English;
- OMNI-2 in Ontario on Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. in Hindi/Urdu;
- OMNI Alberta Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. (played in most of Western Canada except B.C.);
- OMNI B.C. on Sunday, May 27 at 10 p.m.
As we mentioned earlier, The Golden Pen was selected to premiere at Toronto’s ReelWorld Film Festival on April 13 (the video above with Zuhair Kashmeri introducing the documentary was from the premiere); won a runners-up in the short documentary category at the Winter 2012 Asians on Film Festival in West Hollywood; and has its New York premiere on June 6, 2012, hosted by the prestigious Foreign Policy Association in Manhattan.
This has been an amazing journey for me, much as it was an amazing journey for my father, from his hometown of Lucknow, India (not Lucknow, Ontario) to Toronto, Canada.
