Last night we had our live screening of Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then in The Globe Theater at the First Presbyterian Church and it was fantastic! The church hall, which recently had been hit by a car (!), was beautifully lit with the art of local artist Cemellia Cosgray whose expertly rendered tissue paper stained glass map of the world (pictured!) beamed blue upon us as we performed alongside our film! Here is a picture (below) taken behind my foley table just before the lights were dimming for our screening (Alan on bass clarinet is pictured in the foreground and David Wilson, one of the festival directors, can be seen in the background introducing our film to the packed, intimate theater)! Most of the audience even stayed for a Q&A too which was mentioned in this exuberant review of the show over here!
Walking around in this small town and hearing such positive, strong reactions from the audience members of our show made me truly understand why this festival is as perfect as it is: the heart and humanity of everyone involved in the True/False Film Festival is beyond belief! Ok, ok, I am tearing up a bit...what a wonderful experience! More on the fest soon but now I must try to see as many films as possible in the final day of this awe inspiring event!
