Okay, so I’m a little late with Friday’s post. Like, oops, it’s already Saturday. Well, that’s what happens during a hectic film fest weekend. The hours and days begin to melt together, and suddenly, it’s Monday. Wait, is it Monday? ‘Cause that would be kinda cool. I mean, uh, the fest is awesome – not exhausting or harrowing at all. I never want it to end. Honest.
But seriously, folks, the 2009 Big Easy International Film Festival is turning out to be a pretty cool event. Although we experienced some technical difficulties during tonight’s third (and final) screening, the first two films of the night – My McDiet and Trapped in Katrina – came off pretty well, our post-screening question-and-answer sessions were enlightening, and one audience boasted nearly hundred moviegoers, which isn’t bad for a young festival like ours.
I’m pooped, of course, but elated that two days are behind us. Of course, there are still two days left, so I should probably toddle off to bed. When the dust has settled, I’ll be happy to share my misadventures in the world of indie cinema. But, for now, let me just say... Happy Weekend, everyone!
