Film festivals are so cool

Just got back from my weekend trip and I have to say, I wish I could just go to these things all the time! It was so great. We saw some wonderful short films and features, and my favorite film of the day was a documentary called 10 mph. When they release this for sale, I'm buying it! Go to the site and see what it's all about.

We also saw We Go Way Back, which was a very beautiful film that I am still thinking about, an entire day later. I love movies that make me think. I love books that do the same thing, actually.

We saw some other films, several shorts by Alabama filmmakers, and a couple of other features and shorts. I can honestly say I didn't like only a couple of the films we saw this weekend. Most of them were great.

So anyway, we had a great time, and are already planning to go for the whole weekend next year. It'll be so great!


  1. I had such a great time with you this weekend!!!! Love ya! ;-)

  2. That sounds really cool. I would love to go to some sort of film festival.

  3. Chris,

    I had a great time too. Of course, I always have a great time with you. We can be just sitting around talking or going to a film festival, but as long as you are there, I know it's going to be memorable!

  4. Ed,

    You should go to one! They really are a blast. And I'm sure there's one near where you are. I only had to drive a few hours to get to this one, so it wasn't bad at all.

  5. Devon,

    I loved the shorts! I've actually been thinking about writing my own short and seeing if the film club at a local university wants to film it. I don't know anything about actually making a film, so I would want to leave that up to people who do. Or maybe I should try it myself, just for fun...

    But yes, the shorts were a lot of fun. Some of them were hilarious!
