Today I picked up my delegate’s pass for the Edinburgh International Film Festival. And almost immediately went to my first film of the festival.
I am stoked that I get to be a “delegate” as a film student. I get to go to special screenings, I get to go to workshops, and I even get to *gulp* network with professionals from several different countries. Secretly, I want to go up to any of the German film makers that are here and tell them I will do anything, just give me a job in Germany. But that’s another blog post.
But it really is a unique opportunity, and one of the reasons I chose the film school that I did.
I even got a little badge they scan and a canvas bag full of handouts. Whoo!!
The film I saw today was called Something, Anything. It was a really interesting take on the American Dream, although it was a bit rough in some ways (editing, acting), I did like it’s philosophical questions. I’m excited to see what the rest of the films I’ll see will bring to me.
