Sarah & Sanjoy Wedding Film - 16mm & Super 8 Vintage Cinema by { First Kiss Films }

I'm surprised that i don't hear the Romeo and Juliet - Kissing You (Instrumental Theme) in wedding films very often,(first song in the film) it's soo romantic, if you have seen the film you'll know. When I get an email from Bridget of First Kiss Films, i get very happy, and why wouldn't i here she brings you another gem.

Few words about the couple...

Sarah and Sanjoy were married last July along the banks of the Ottawa River. The bride elegantly embraced the groom's Bengali Hindu background and was stunning in the traditional red and gold sari she wore for their ceremony. And just wait until you see the glittering lengha she wore to the reception in the Grand Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization...

A wonderful surprise dance performance starring Sanjoy's sister sweetly told the story of the couple's courtship and brought everyone to their feet - it was the highlight of the reception and gives their wedding film a bollywood-inspired ending.


This will serve as an inspiration to us all...read more below about how  Bridget donates a percentage of her profits from each film to support the Burundi Film School in Africa. 

Giving back is a principle we live by. So with every { First Kiss Films } investment, a minimum of 7.5% of proceeds will go to the Burundi Film Center. This non-profit film school provides free film training to local youth living in one of the poorest countries in the world. You can loose your job, your home, but the gift of education is something that can never be taken away. 

The films past students have produced have since gone on to play in over 50 international film festivals all over the world, won a number of awards and given the students opportunities for further training in the U.S., Canada, Germany and South Africa. All this has been done only with the help of volunteer filmmakers, donated equipment and donations from friends.

{ First Kiss Films } is proud of the work of the Burundi Film Center and happy to be able to help contribute to this wonderful project.
