Last night was PCA's second screening of their French film series: La Cinematheque, which included giving an Artistic Achievement Award to director, Costa-Gavras. The 76 year-old Oscar Award-winning director is gracious, very interested in conversing with his audience and still cuts quite a dashing figure.
The evening produced a full-house of which 95% stayed for the Q&A after the screening of his new, comedic, road movie, Eden Is West.
Right now I'm on the bus heading to NY for the New York Independent International Film & Video Festival (Oct 22-29) which had it's opening last night. I was hoping to post my review of last night's film, some highlights from the Q&A, along with info on the coming attractions for the NYIIFVF, the problem being although the wifi is great on this MegaBus the bumpy ride makes it really hard to blog successfully, and I'm getting car sick.
