Portland International Film Festival

BelleI 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!
