I always look forward to the film festival. Evyn and I will be going to see the animated shorts, for sure. It’s a highlight for us. We enjoy the range of emotions; from thought-provoking to quirky to funny to bizarre and then discussing our favorite afterwards. With the short collections, the sequence is important and I appreciate the folks involved in programming it. As far as full length films, The Record Man, Made In Japan and Me and Earl and The Dying Girl are on my radar. Evyn put Welcome To Me on the list. She is a big fan of Kristen Wiig.
