Now in its 55th year, the London Film Festival, presented by the British Film Institute (BFI), is the largest film event in the UK. It presents "the finest contemporary international cinema from both established and emerging film-makers" by showcasing more than 300 features and shorts from more than 50 countries. It is a "premiere" festival, and demands, at minimum, to be the first UK screening for every new film. Summer Snapshot is proud to make its UK debut at London BFI.www.bfi.org.uk/lff/
We don't know what is a bigger honor: screening along-side an Academy Award winning short, or one by Gus Van Sant, or one by Chel White with narration by Alec Baldwin, or one by Matt McCormick with narratin by Miranda July, or one of the coolest music videos by one of the coolest bands of all time, the Talking Heads. All of the above?
Summer Snapshot screens as part of the Sapporo International Film Festival & Market in Japan as part of the "Made in Portland" program, curated by the NW Film Center.www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2011/10/in_downtown_portland_northwest.html
The Adventure Film Festival celebrates all aspects of adventure, from "serious exploration to environmental heroism to gripping tales from the edges of the believable." We're glad they saw in Summer Snapshot a story of adventure, or perhaps the spirit of adventure, comraderie, and lifelong memories.
