I've often talked about why I love Film. The power that a well produced piece of Art has to influence is second to none. Heck, well produced, not even, it just needs to strike a cord. When the passion of a Film Maker connects with the audience it is a wonderful thing.
This years selections at both festivals struck me as interesting. Interesting, both at CIFF and at EIFF picked films that spoke to them. Ok there is always the flavor of the day. The thing about festivals though, is they bring us the unseen, the unpublished, the looking to get picked up...

A heart felt Congratulations to the CIFF Team and the EIFF Team. I am in awe of the hard work and passion it takes to bring a successful festival to light.
