Login2Life will be screened next week on the 13th October, (Saturday 2.30pm) in Salzburg, DAS KINO (Presentation of the Salzburg film edition 2012). But more info to come. We are fond of introducing the final artwork. It took some time since the release of the film. But sometimes good things take time. Thank you Razvan and BAM for your marvelous support.
I arrived today afternoon in Biarritz. A decent wheather 13°C and a warm brise from the Atlantic ocean welcomed me here. It’s a pity that my producer colleagues from Eidolon Entertainment can’t join me here (thinking of you and sending you also some pics). For me it’s a strange feeling to return to Biarritz because the past three times when I was here the intention was surfing. Or better to say: Learning how to surf(Never managed to catch a damn wave in 7 weeks paddling .-)
So it is very odd to come here for presenting L2L. And it’s a great opportunity for us to start because I have to admit that the festival is bigger than I thought it is. They celebrate this year their 25th anniversary and you can see that they try to raise the flag high. Before I even managed to set a step on the ground in Biarritz I already met a filmaker from Israel (Naomi from Black Sheep) while waiting for the transfer flight in Paris who is also presenting a film here at the festival. After we were picked up gently at the Biarritz airport we directly received our ‘badge professionnel’ from wonderful organization team member Florence Girot in the picturesque festival headquarter at the Biarritz Casino (see pic in older post, wonderful view onto the beach, I can tell you). Then the eve came and I joined the opening ceremony in the Gare du Midi ( a cinema with more than 1500 seats). It was pretty stuffed with audience. They presented the key players of the festival and the jury of the competition program. I made a picture of the stage and of the face who is head of the ‘creative documentary’ competition section named Inês de Medeiros. So now I know where I have to send my prayers to.-) After this formal opening ceremony they really opened the festival with the interesting pilot (first episode of the suspenseful french series named ‘Homes de l’ombre’, content: after the assassination of the french president, the new elections are dependant on two rivals communication agents …)
After this full impact day I saved myself from extiction and I enjoyed a wonderful french dinner in the ‘Bar du Jardin’, which ended with my favourite dessert ‘creme brulle’ which is directly responseble for the fact that I’m sitting here after midnight and writing this nonesense. I hope I’ll be able to write more posts during my stay here. At least when we receive an award I’ll do this for sure:-)
