I ADORE any sort of “festival” or “fair” because it brings like individuals together to appreciate the aesthetics of our times (or different eras)–without nay sayers poo-pooing the festivities (’cause you don’t have to be there if you don’t want to.)
I must admit that although I knew of these awesome film festivals, I have no idea how it works, who started it, and when it happens–I didn’t even know little ol’ me could attend without being important >.<
Is it a gated or scattered venue(s)? Do I have to produce a film to be part of it? Do I pay once or multiple times?
BUT today, I’m goin’ with a fellow film buff Danielle P. to the annual Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, to see what the big hooplah is all about!
We didn’t get the opportunity to purchase tickets ahead of time, but we’ll see how much entertainment can be had with my $40 budget.
One of these days, I’ll be featuring MY own film in Tribeca ^-^ But for now I’ll be the wide-eyed nerd looking up at the silver screens going “WTF was that!?!” or “GENIUS!”
