EIFF – 2012
This year I worked as Videotheque Supervisor in the Film Festival, (a small step up from last year’s title of Videotheque Assistant.)
I didn’t get a chance to see as many films as I would’ve liked but here’s a run down of the best three;
My favourite documentary this year from ex-Edinburgh College of Art student Maja Borg. This film is a perfect example of the kind of fresh exciting documentaries that we should be making more of. I loved the balance of personal and informative content.
A documentary that at times was confusing, but for the most part is engaging in taking you on a dangerous journey into central Africa to try and expose the illegal Blood Diamond trade.
This year’s opening film got me a bit too excited about the future of Mathew McConaughey films. A great shock film, in many ways similar to the likes of American Psycho.
I also got a chance to attend a panel discussion on Danish Documentary which was incredibly interesting.
