Dear friends
you may be interested in the blog i did from the san sebastian film festival it can be found at
http://www.reallifelog.com/earthsummit2005/

I had a press pass for the ten days and it was living in a strange world but with many similarities to the world i live in at the UN. The success here is based on networking to make contacts. The Ministers here are either the stars or the directors. And depending on what you are networking for, it is all about money, finding ways to finance your project, and about selling ideas or visions of what those idea are.
 

In the ten days I tried to interest a director on an environmental film idea, networked with some producers who are helping me understand the system better, met with the Festival Director to pitch for an environmental retrospective next year, hung out with some of the stars, asked questions in six of the press conferences to people such as Oliver Stone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Melinda Page Hamilton, Kate Beckinsale and Diane Kruger and managed to see around ten films and attend a few parties.
 

For me, the best film of the festival was Copying Beethoven, the best environmental film was Children of Men, the best comedy Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, the best emigration film Ghosts.
 

I can’t wait until next year!!!
warm regards
felix
