Tuesday November 2nd 2010
I saw 26 films in total, all but three of which were on my 30 Must See Films list.
Luckily, there were also plenty of treats in store if you were willing to look for them. Catfish, Another Year, The Kids Are All Right and Somewhere will all shortly be appearing on my Best of 2010 list, while Blue Valentine, Tabloid and film-of-the-festival Submarine will be heading up next year’s list whenever it materialises.
Special thanks go to Sanam Jehanfard and everybody else at Premier PR for carrying my throne between the limo and the Vue for those early-morning press screenings, Sandra Hebron and all the festival staff for keeping everything running so smoothly, and of course, Jameson Irish Whiskey for regularly pumping me full of free booze.
With the barren winter film calendar approaching, and then nothing but awards season to keep me entertained until next October, you’ll forgive me for counting down the days.
Bring on LFF ’11!
