As I write this, Slamdance 2016
is on its finishing lap, Sundance 2016
is in full swing and making headlines, Rotterdam 2016
starts tomorrow, and mere days after that one we get this year's Berlinale
. And no doubt there are dozens of less well-known festivals going on in January and February which I fail to mention just out of the top of my head.
Film festivals are fun. They provide us all with a chance to watch stuff theatrically which we otherwise would not be able to. They allow us to see some films months before they become a hype and get general releases. And festivals have guests, many of which you can just walk up to and greet.
So my question of this week is: of the current and currently upcoming festivals, is there an event, film or visit in particular, which you are looking forward to (or liked, if it happened already)?
