    Hi Caroline, I believe I am on the waiting list for the event but have no confirmation. Is there a way to receive confirmation that I am on the waiting or should I just show up?

    What time should we get there if we're on the waitlist?

    EVENT RSVP HAS CLOSED. If you have not paid in advance, unpaid guests will be on the waiting list. We have the right to refuse entry if there are no seats left. It will just be uncomfortable to be honest. We might consider another screening in the future so stay tuned.

    Did you know that Growing Cities was partly funded through kickstarter? In May 2013, Dan and Andrew managed to raise $45,000 to help with the post production costs.
