NIFF 2009 Day Two

Since I live near the airport, I volunteered to pick up a film maker first thing this morning. Scott Teems is bringing his film, That Evening Sun, to Newport Film Festival for a few days (tonight's screening is sold out). He's a friendly young man, who spoke of his work and his family on our ride into town. On my return to Newport,I found that a driver was stuck in gridlock traffic coming back from Boston and the film maker's lounge was open. There were more arrivals over the afternoon, tickets were selling briskly at the box office and arrivals continued late into the night. When Alex Olch, of the The Windmill Movie, was safely deposited at his B&B I headed home to sleep. More film and film folk tomorrow.
