Chantal took Steve and I for a drive to Grasse. She’s the directrice of the Festival of Independent American Cinema (FCIA), the festival I went to in Agen last year. (more) At next year’s event in Grass, The FCIA will be partnered with Steve’s Laugh is Hope Film festival. We toured the theatre, and saw the town. A tip for driving in Grasse: the pigeons in the street don’t just fly out of the way like in America. We ran over 2 in 5 minutes! Sickening, but hilarious.

People were walking out of "Three Times" in droves. Dreadfully boring.
On to the Short Film Corner Party
British Actors Tom Wotner and Helena Roman
Tom and I walked in together and held court for a while. Tom is like the Gerrard Depardieu of British short films. - He's in all of them, including in-competition film "The Man Who Met Himself".
