The premiere of To Nightwish with Love documentary was a success. The band watched the film and talked very beautifully about it. The fan filmmakers who were able to come to the premiere loved it, and the live stream at Nightwish Facebook page has already got almost 150 000 viewers. We as directors can’t but smile - it couldn’t have gone any better.
“I’m truly touched” said Floor Jansen after watching the film. Other band members were equally delighted.
Tuomas Holopainen was moved by the idea of music as a bridge between cultures: “That was simply brilliant! The highlight of the documentary for me was: it’s all about sharing. The fact we are able to bring people together regardless of nationality, age, gender or race, and give them the chance to live it all together, that’s what it was all about”.
