FFF update (such as it is)

I've been meaning to mention an email I received a week ago. It was from Tina Brown, who does marketing for the Florida Film Festival. She had stumbled upon my frustrated post and sent out her sympathies as well as her assurances that they're working on making the schedule perfect before posting it online.

First off, much thanks to Tina for doing this. A cynical man could dismiss this as "just her job" but it's the kind of personal touch that seems emblematic of the FFF from my limited experience. When Mrs. Mosley purchased passes for last year's Festival, the guy who spoke to her on the phone was Chris Blanc, the head of the Enzian Theatre. She told me he was incredibly nice and personable, so I really have nothing but positive vibes from the folks who run it.

On the con side, Today marks T minus three weeks to the festival and still there is no schedule. There is, however, a new event announced and it's a doozy. Glenn Close will present a screening of Fatal Attraction and talking about her career on April the 3rd. Nice snag there, FFF. Given that my free weekend to come down there will be before this, I'm going to miss out on Glenn, but it's a nice follow up to the very entertaining Malcolm McDowell appearance last year.

As for Tina, if you're reading this, I'll just say that I'm heading down with friends on Saturday the 14th to purchase advance tickets and oodles of LEGO for my next stop-motion project. If there aren't any titles posted for me to buy tickets for by that time, well, March 28th might find me at home posing minifigs one frame at a time instead of relaxing in the Enzian.
