I was so glad we made it to the 37th Portland International Film Festival. There was so much I wanted to see (I didn’t get to it all) and it’s such a great cultural happening. I mean there was no way I was going to get to see even a fraction of the 128 movies being screened, but still, I was definitely putting the event on my Portland calendar for the week! I even got to the opening night with Daniel on 6th February and made him watch the English period drama, Belle. He thought it was “okay.” I thought it was spectacular. What he did enjoy a lot however was the opening night party. No surprises there I guess!
I dunno. Call me old-fashioned or something but I really like the idea of going to the movies like we used to, back in the olden days. We would dress up and get excited for a night at the Odeon. A lot has changed since then given the ease of movie access. So when a film festival appears on the Portland calendar, I sure will make the most of it!
