The Power of E-Mails

Gosh what a few busy weeks I’ve had its been non-stop here in the ystwyth its only now that I have time to devote to a bit of blogging – and to be honest I’ve been missing typing away in my little ‘blog box’. Today’s musing is nothing to do with festivals (although thats a lie as discuss the topic at the bottom of the page!)

5 types of Festivals, a classification by Elliott Grove

user
Film festivals are divided into categories based on the number of acquisition executives that attend. Majors The major film festivals, in rank, are: Cannes, Toronto, Sundance, Berlin, Rotterdam and Venice. Cannes is undoubtedly the premiere event. Toronto and Sundance vie for the number two spot, but since Sundance has become a launching pad for Hollywood films, I personally give the number two spot to Toronto - if for no other reason than the important slots it gives to foreign languag...
