SDFF..One Month to Go
So we are officially less than a month away from the 2009 San Diego Film Festival. I'm not sure if we're going to go this year since our September is looking pretty swamped, but I'm curious to see how the Festival will play out.
As we've mentioned before, a lot of festivals have toned down their excesses over the past couple of years as our economy slid into the gutter. And I think SDFF is no exception. They've drastically cut down the price of passes. The basic all access pass last year was like $150 or something, and now it's only $99. And they're not even listing the VIP pass price anymore on their website. Every other year SDFF has advertised their VIP pass at $300/ea. Yeah, it was a pretty steep price, but it includes no waiting in line at any movies, or parties, with access to their open bars and complimentary services like salon visits etc. So it's actually a pretty cool pass. I was sneaky enough to finagle two VIP passes in 08 for only $150 bucks through craigslist (the best place to hunt for discounted SDFF passes) and we definitely got our money's worth in free drinks. And now the SDFF VIP pass is only available by contacting for the price.hhhmm. Well I hope that the Festival hasn't suffered too much and its enjoyable for those who attend.
Anyways, it is LATE-we've just finished editing our Street Scene footage which we'll post tomorrow along with pics et.It was a super fun (and exhausting) event, so we can't wait to share our experiences with you. So right now I'm going to take a shower, climb into bed and try to forget that I have to be up in 6 hours to go to work. Ciao for now!
