Savannah Film Festival

Post by emmie » Oct 24th 2004, 7:15 pm

I'm really excited because the savannah film festival started last night. it's not as huge or important as most other film festivals, but it's still cool. our film department shuts down and we don't have class for the entire week while we all go to films and workshops. I just love the fact that you can watch films 12 hours a day, and then go to receptions and talk about films all night. what fun. :) plus it's a great opportunity to see films from other film schools, and independent films that would never normally come to our few chain movieplexes. not to mention that for a week, the film school is the center of attention. yay, us!

they do, however, bring some bigger films for the night premieres to make some money. Stage Beauty will be here as well as Being Julia and Finding Neverland. and usually an actor, director or producer shows up and answers questions afterwards. I know some of you guys are used to film festivals and such out in L.A., but it's the big time here in little ole' southern Savannah. :wink:

I guess I never wrote about my experiences at the film festival. anyway, it was a great time. and I actually was able to sneak into a couple of the private parties. so yay! also, they had this thing called coffee talk that took place in the lobby of the hotel where all the filmmakers were staying. so all of us students would gather early in the morning and then filmmakers would come down and talk to us about a special topic or whatever. so one morning the young director David Gordon Greene showed up, he had his latest film in the festival. most of you probably don't know who he is, but he's a great new director who tells character driven stories that simply break my heart. being the shy person that I am, it was very difficult for me to work up the courage to talk to him after the coffee talk was over. but I was inspired by the fact that I had let such opportunities (ahem, Jared Leto) pass me by because of my shyness. so somehow, I worked up the courage to speak with him and ended up talking to him for like 20 minutes. it was great and well worth it.

Awesome! Sounds like you had a great time. I haven't been to a film festival in a couple of years.
Um, in my room, one seam is a little off and I stare at it constantly. It's, like, destroying me.

Moltar- Well hey, Thom asked me if he could see my knife, and Thom's doing a song about knife, and he wanted to see what one looked like. Isn't that right Thom? (Pulls out knife again)
Space Goast- (Turns to Thom Yorke) Is that right?
Thom- ...No.
Space Goast- Cuz it sounds like a good idea... so do it.

I might just be looking over it, but I couldn't find that topic. I'll look again.

before the film started, my friend and I were leaning over the balcony to get a glimpse of Jared. he was turned around in his seat with a small digital video camera and was taping the crowd. so we're on his tape.
This is way off topic, but have you ever thought about that? You know, just think about everytime you were behind someone who was being taken a picture of (I know, bad grammer). Your face can be in millions (Okay, not millions) of people's pictures, like in the background, for all eternity.

I know, pretty deep huh? :roll:

Ok to add to your 'off topic' topic - in HS I worked at Chuck E. Cheese's and I had to host birthday parties there, and sometimes I was even Chuck E. myself. I am in so many pictures and video tapes. Its really wierd to think about....

It is really weird to think about. One time, I was going threw old pictures, and I cam across this one from my first communion. And, in the background, was one of my good friends! It was so strange, because I didn't even know that she existed then, and I had a picture of her when she was tiny! It kinda weirds me out to know that I could be in someones picture fram, as I write this.

It's truley is a small world after all! :D
