I’m here to tell you I survived another year. I flagged a little in the middle but came through strong in the homestretch.
It was a great fest, and I think a popular one, with a bunch of sold-out screenings. The audience award went to Thom Fitzgerald’s Cloudburst and there were five screenings of Roller Town. Lots of support for Nova Scotia films, which is great to see.
Some of my favourites of this year’s fest were the features Café de flore, Starbuck, Take This Waltz, Take Shelter, Higher Ground and Charlie Zone. Also, documentaries Pina, Senna and The Swell Season were all excellent. Here are links to my blog posts at The Coast website:
And you’ll find my reviews of The Swell Season, Snow, Take Shelter, Bellflower, Senna, Crazy Wisdom, The Swell Season and a number of shorts here.
(Yep, it’s been a busy 10 days.)
