One year after being in the Joris Ivens competition with 51 Birch Street, I'm back in overcast Amsterdam as a jurist for IDFA's First Appearance competion. 18 films to see in the next 5 days - yikes! Not to mention, two more screenings of 51 Birch Street in the Reflecting Images (Panorama) section, including tonight at 9:30 at City 3 (for those in the neighborhood).
More upbeat 51B news on the U.S. theatrical front - held over for a 6th week in NY, 4th week in SF, and opening today in Boston to a glowing Boston globe review and interview with Yours Truly. And an exciting development on the home video/dvd front to report soon.
It's always hard to find time to report in at festivals and I'll be a busy sequestered boy but I'll do my best. Cheers.
