The HIFF was a blast. The screening went well as did the Q&A. It was the things outside of that though which were the most enjoyable. We were put up in a beautiful house next to the beach owned by the president of the Whitney Museum which was beautiful to say the least. Then we were invited to several parties and met some interesting people, not least of which for me included Alec Baldwin. I'd heard he was very supportive of emerging filmmakers and he certainly came across that way. On top of it all I had my first experience of a pulled pork roll at a Texas BBQ restaurant. Not something you'd find down home in NZ. It was awesome!

Hamptons International Film Festival
The Bloomingdale's promotion ends soon but the five films will have a life outside of the BFLIX campaign. They will tour the international Film Festival circuit starting with the prestigious Hamptons International Film Festival this week. I have never attended this festival before personally but have heard a great deal of good things about it so I'm very much looking forward to it. I will be on a panel on Sunday along with the other Bflix directors discussing "New Approaches to Reaching An Audience". Definitely a hot topic in Independent film right now. Here's the details of the event below or you could click here to go straight to the site.
