Accordion Dreams was screened throughout the country including CineFestival of San Antonio, SXSW of Austin, the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival, CineSol Latino Film Festival, the Dallas Video Festival. A special screening was held at the historic La Villita Dance Hall in San Benito, Texas and at the Great Plains Film Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska. Accordion Dreams was honored as the “best film to explicate the Latino/ethnic heritage of the Great Plains Region” with the prestigious “Rainbow Award”.
Accordion Dreams was also selected by the American Film Institute as a program participant in the 2001 Enhanced Television Workshop, where it is being developed as a prototype in the use of new technologies for the development of interactive, digital TV.
