NIFF 2008 Final Day
It's the last day of the Newport International Film Festival and everyone is exhausted. But there are still films to been shown, tickets to be torn and theaters to be cleaned. Not sure what to make of finding a toothbrush in a cup holder after a screening of The Red Balloon today (did I say I liked cleaning the theater?). A double dutch demonstration in Washington Park, from the kids in the documentary Double Time, was inspiring and entertaining. The festival awards were presented today, always good to put these films on your "to see" list if you missed them this week. It's been a good week of film and friends. Thanks NIFF, see you next year!
