“…Sweatin’ like a pig
in a portable potty.
Vitamin B, lots of fresh air.
Excuse me, Mr. Biker,
Can’t see through your lawn chair!”
I can’t remember who wrote that song, but I always think of it during festival time.
My summer of busker festivals has come to a close for 2008, but film festivals are just beginning!
If you’re in Newfoundland, be sure to come out to some screenings at the St. John’s Int. Women’s Film Festival on the 14th to the 18th. One event in particular to keep an eye out for is the “Moving Stories Film Festival”, which will be featuring my latest film, “Nagasaki Circus” as well as many other intriguing shorts, on Oct. 17th.
I’ll be doing a kids’ workshop before the festival begins, on Oct. 11th and 12th, and the children’s work will be screened on closing night.
Much fun is guaranteed to be had in St. John’s in the month of October. People who live on steep, secluded rocks certainly know how to have a good time.
Sadly, there will be no fire eating show at St. John’s’ closing party this year… at least not by me. Any other fire eaters are welcome to take my place. I’ll be heading out early, but I’ll have hoola hoops and Mamma Cutsworth’s beats on my mind.
