...the one and only Mr. Lee Thomas, the London Film Geek.
Lee is going to be accompanying myself, David Mackenzie, Jamie Bell, Gillian Berrie and Matthew Justice to the Motovun film festival to do a kind of blog mash-up with them and the whole thing will take place here on Get Your People.
So keep an eye on the blog for the next week or so because it's going to be a busy place as the Family Foe head to Croatia with their movie.
PS Sigma Films are particularly well represented at this festival with Hallam Foe, Red Road and After the Wedding all playing. It should be an exciting week and we will be bringing you interviews and stories from all the players (including Stephen Daldry of Billy Elliot and The Hours fame) taking part. I can't wait.

Hey Helegis well i didn't think you meant me ;)
I last went to the Motovun Film Festival 2 years ago and it's one i've never forgotten.

Hey Lee I mean the Motovun is our "Slavic Woodstock" and is impossible to forget :)
I myself feel so envious now - I was thinking about maybe going there this year.. to have fun you know (I didn't know HF and Efter Brylluppet were to be in the programme though). But I'm finishing a project of mine and running out of time - so I don't have enough time to travel by train (it's something like 3 days from Moscow).. And I'm hopelessly aerophobic - each time i see a plane beside me I burst into tears and I can't stand a flight longer than 45 minutes.. Now that I know that Istvan Szabo who is a hero of mine is gonna be the President of the Jury this year.. I feel like I'm missing everything in this life! Everyone is having fun and I'm stuck with my work! All I can do is reading your blogs guys and envy envy envy...

I'm actually a little nervous about meeting Istvan, re-watched Mephisto and Colonel Redl this weekend in fact.

OMG... Mephisto and Colonel Redl (and also Sunshine) are my favourite works of his.. Well I'm such a fan it breaks my heart I'm not going there.. BTW you're not planning to maybe grab a couple of interviews there and maybe upload them later, are you?
Well anyway I hope you'll have a great time!
(And I also hope you all are alright now, I mean the flood and everything)
