A few of us went to the local short film night - FutureShorts. A couple of hundred students also had the same idea. Which is great. This kind of alternative cinema circuit could be a big thing in a few years time. Its the kind of idea that I know a lot of American companies are looking at. Going one further I heard in Cannes about films (mainly political films) that get 'distribution' by arranging screenings in peoples homes. But I digress.
The story is about a girl called Amy who came up to me to tell me how much Eight had meant to her. She had arranged a screening of it in her home town and everything.
That's the kind of story that sticks with you. And drives you on. And makes you wish you made more films.
