EIFF Day One, Screenings Four

EIFF.gifIt all started a lot better than yesterday's fiasco, with the arrival at the Press Office bang on 08:30 and finding them already open and waiting.

My information and pack were obtained within seconds by a group of ladies who were quite nervous, perhaps they thought I was someone important! The pack was good this year, with the usual pieces of information in a nice canvas bag with a pen and balloon. Always handy.

Since the EIFF were so efficient this morning I headed off to Cineworld early and watched some staff using a portable crane to put posters up on top of the inside of the cinema. Then watch the arriving delegates for the 9am showings...which never seemed to happen.

Now I'm sitting waiting for the first film to begin, the first of the festival, of 48 films in 13 days (full schedule). Yes, I am mad and I will be very tired. Many thanks to my boss for giving me the time off work. Next year, as a warning, I intend to try and get to another festival as well as the EIFF...the request will follow!

Here's to the festival, and here's to all of you who are planning on seeing some movies. Keep a watch on the EIFF page for the latest updates, quick reviews on the day of the press screenings and full reviews...well...later!

Today's reviews are My Country, My Country, Palimpsest, The Flying Scotsman and Love Sick, and you can see the quick reviews now over on the EIFF page.



Glad day 2 went better than day 1. I guess the Brunton wedding won't be during August next year then?

Either that or it will take place in a cinema.....Oooh now there's an idea Richard. Just don't tell Z that it was mine.

Don't joke, I've already suggested it! My next birthday might well be in a cinema...perhaps we could get a double deal!

Great minds think alike eh....

Heh, you could film the wedding and project it onto the screen for the people at the back....
