Happy Tuesday, folks! It’s not just another Tuesday on the calendar though, it’s the start of the Twin Cities Film Fest!
I’m excited to be covering the event starting tonight with The Bully Project documentary tonight, followed by Q&A with director Lee Hirsch.
I’m hoping to have time to ask a couple of questions during the panel or even talk to a couple of talents such as Tom Sizemore, Anton Yelchin & Like Crazy‘s director Drake Doremus who are scheduled to appear during the event. As I’ve mentioned here, I really like Yelchin so I’d love to get an autograph from him or even a picture together. Last year I didn’t get a chance to really interview anyone, the closest thing was that I got to shake hands with Waiting for Superman‘s director Davis Guggenheim as he arrived at the theater.
I’m also hoping to see more films this year, in fact, my hope is to see at least two films a day starting tomorrow (there is only just the opening night film scheduled for tonight) so I can give you a mini review of them daily.
So I hope you’ll stay with me during the coverage and pardon my lack of comments on your blog as I’m juggling both my job and covering the film fest. In the meantime, I’d ask you this:
What film festival have you attended or be a part of and what’s your most memorable moment about it?
I could use some tips from you film fest pros out there, so please do share!

Unfortunately i’ve never been to a film festival so i can’t really help you out here 😦
Hey you will, Julian, and perhaps one day you’ll be there promoting your film 😀
Wishing you the best Ruth! I had to miss out on both film festivals in my area over the last couple of months! Planning for future ones!
Looking forward to all your reports and reviews!
Thanks T, hope you stay around and read my coverage/reviews. If you have a chance to be a part of your local film fest, do so, it’s a great experience.
Funny you should ask…
Cool, I’ve left a comment 🙂
Brilliant have a great time my BFF. I look forward to reading all about it when I get back off my holidays.
I am afraid i am away from 22-29th so won’t be able to comment over here. But I haven’t forgot you I am just away…Please comment on FRC though as I have left Toby in charge…:-)
Have fun on your holiday, matey!! What a great, exotic place you’re going to, enjoy! I’ll try to check my friends’ blogs when time allows.
I have my tickets for Machine Gun Preacher on Friday, and can’t wait! I’m also greatly looking forward to the interviews… I’m fascinated to hear directly about the people so closely involved with the Fest. And, of course, I’ll be glued to ALL of your coverage – GO Flixy!
Yeah, I have a bunch of friends going to see that, I think a total of 10 in my group, yippee!! Friday can’t come soon enough 🙂
Have fun at the fest Ruth! Looking forward to your reviews 😀
You better Castor 😀
I must admit that I never attended one even though we have the International Film Festival Rotterdam over here, which I never attended. Next month one of the big cinema chains has a one day festival which I will go to. They are going to show 5 movies (Drive, The Help, The Ides of March, We Need To Talk About Kevin and La Piel Que Habito) that day (starting at 10:30 and ending at 23:15) which I’m looking forward to.
