And I’m hyaving lots of fun. I can’t believe how many friendly people I know, they are extremely nice and I got a good reception to Madness In Four Actions. People are excited about the vampire flick and I think a lot of my friends are going to come out for it. I’ve been busy with festival things, going to movies, going out schmoozing with the artists and programmers and other filmy related folk. I’ve seen some good work, and I’ve met some really interesting people. I love the comraderie of a film festival.
This afternoon I have nothing scheduled so I am kicking back and enjoying a lazy few hours before I head out to watch more more MORE films and videos!
Staying in the hostel is actually not too bad, even though I am in a six person dorm. I sleep in every morning (something I have to stop if I am to catch my plane), and then I head out to the festival. I stayed out pretty late last night and I think tonight is some kind of party. They sure do know how to party it up at this festival. I met a woman from Australia who lives in the bush with the crocodiles, she was the subject of a doc on the opening night. I saw my friend Cheryl L’Hirondelle perform last night, where I ran into my ex stepmom and an old friend who used to live in Van like me.
I’m having a lot of fun, which is good. I had no expectations when I arrived, which maybe why I’m having such a good time. I’ve already seen more friends than I saw in Vancouver when I was there recently.
Anyway, that’s about the scoop. I managed to snag two copies of NOW with my review in it, the actors want a copy so I might just keep a photocopy for myself and give them the originals for their scrapbook.
