Okay. I’m misleading you a bit. While there is a MIFF Round Up that I’d like to share – I didn’t write it. I am dreadfully ashamed to say that I didn’t even make it to one session of MIFF this year. Yes, I am a BAD Melbourne film industry member. I’m slapping my wrist on your behalf as I type this.
However, thankfully for all, a friend of mine did go to MIFF this year. In fact, he went to 58 SESSIONS of MIFF this year. Which means he sat through 54 feature films and 4 short film programs!!! Which, when you factor in that MIFF ran for 16 days, works out to average 3.6 films A DAY!! That’s insane!!! (Sorry, just got a bit overwhelmed with the idea of watching that much celluloid in just over a fortnight).
Anyway, he is now beginning to blog about his MIFF experience. As he knows more about film and filmmakers than I’ll ever learn in a lifetime and writes in such a way that I continually laugh out loud when reading his work (and the fact that he actually went to MIFF this year and I didn’t, which is kinda important when reviewing the line up on offer), I will now share his experience with you, via his blog.
