It’s been one year since Stana Katic brought For Lovers Only to the Zlín Film Festival in Czech Republic. Those fortunate of us who had a chance to be there fell in love with this film immediately. Ever since its release, FLO has been ispiring and influencing lives of many people. Countless times we could see tweets such as ‘No other movie has ever had such an impact on me’. That’s why we decided to say thank you to Mark Polish, Michael Polish and Stana Katic on this special day so that they could see how many hearts they touched with FLO.
#Thanks4FLO gallery preview:

Mark Polish has submitted FLO for the Champs-Élysées Film Festival in Paris.
We really hope it will make the selection. For news about this event you can visit the festival’s facebook page or tweet them - @CEfilmfest - to let them know how much we like this movie and what it would mean to us to see it in Paris!
Submissions will be accepted until March 16th 2012. The selection will be announced during a press conference in April 2012. Fingers crossed!
EDIT: We regret to inform you that FLO wasn’t selected for the Champs-Élysées Film Festival.
Last year, the feature film “For Lovers Only” garnered a lot of attention in the media when it was released solely on iTunes. Ironically, before they even shot the film, Mark Polish, writer and co-producer of the film, and director Michael Polish joked with each other that it could be the first film released on the iPad; the device had been released only a few days before they left to shoot the film in France.
A small special screening of For Lovers Only was held in Rome on Valentine’s day, February 14th 2012. A huge thank you to Biblioteca Casanatense for providing their beautiful place, Lavinia for organizing this event and Angus MacDonald for making it possible and presenting the film to Italian audience.
Date: 14th of Fabruary Time: 15:30 Place: Biblioteca Casanatense, Via S. Ignazio 52 (close to Piazza Venezia)
Movie dialogue between Sofia and Yves after they meet on the steps…
by Joy Thomas
S-How long are you in town for?
Y-Couple of days. Are you okay?
Y-It was inevitable wasn’t it?
Y-Its really funny, yea, eventually you run away long enough…you’re gonna…
S-(mutters)…. bump into…again
Y-that’s funny. I think if it weren’t for gravity I would have fallen off the face of the earth.
S-I didn’t think you were going to call…. I’m glad you did. It’s crazy, there are so many questions I want to ask you, but I don’t know if I can.
S-I don’t know if I want to know any of the answers to any of them, you know?
Y-There’s some seriously bad territory, huh?
S-Did you ever think this would happen? How many times have you been in Paris?
Y-I’ve been here….I’m counting ‘cos I know I come like 6 times a year…
Y-And I don’t know my times tables… So I am figuring 35 times maybe?
S-6 times 8, 48
Y-48 times. You’re nervous, you only bite your nails when you’re nervous. So the Tabasco never worked?
S-I started liking Tabasco after that.
