Marfa Film Festival

Another festival I'm heartbroken to say I won't be attending is the first ever Marfa Film Festival. I've only been to this little town once before, but it was an unforgettable experience, and I can't think of a more magical place to spend a weekend watching movies. The amazing Robin Lambaria has put together a really outstanding program for this inaugural year of the festival. What could top an outdoor screening of There Will Be Blood on the set of There Will Be Blood? Try watching Night Of The Hunter or The Innocents under the stars, or Dennis Hopper's rarely seen The Last Movie with Hopper in attendance? There are new films, too, like Chris Eska's August Evening (which I've yet to see in its feature length incarnation) and the insane documentary Audience Of One. And A Catalog Of Anticipations is screening there, too, which reminds me that I need to ship them a DigiBeta. Ah, print traffic. Hardly something to complain about.

Once again...next year.
