I am still buzzing from Saturday night’s Misty Moon International Film Festival.
How brilliant was that?
As our beloved Cinema Museum is temporarily closed due to “that virus” instead of postponing the festival we decided to stream it online.
With a full online house packed with guests and filmmakers from around the world, enjoying the best in independent film. No technical glitches and all the films streamed perfectly, thanks to the technical brilliance of Martin Rudman. I had one of the filmmakers from New York messaging me during the festival to say how thrilled he was that their film streamed seamlessly… the miracles of modern technology…
I am so proud of Misty Moon’s special guest MC Suzanne Maddock… Suzanne did a wonderful job holding everything together…The judging panel were fabulous in their deliberations as I mediated them. Also in true Misty Moon tradition we stayed on chatting and drinking in our virtual pub The Slaughtered Lamb until the very wee small hours…
This was also a fundraiser for our beloved Cinema Museum and we raised £362.50 on Saturday night and a couple of days before, The Misty Mooners had already been donating so we have raised over £500, so well done everyone.
We even had Lindsay Honey aka adult Legend Ben Dover doing a drum roll from Spain before each winner‘s announcement…..
