cinematic chat

Remember how much I raved about the Tribeca Film Festival back in April? It was one of the best experiences of my life. Well, I just had coffee with my friend Perry, whose job is within film acquisitions -- meaning he goes to film festivals, watches tons of new films, and then helps his company decide if it should try to acquire them. How lucky!

So then I started thinking about all the cool films I was fortunate to see from the TFF: the foreign films and sassy shorts, the never-before-seen U.S. premieres; and I began feeling even more motivated to keep films a constant staple in my life, along with other hobbies like writing and reading. No matter how busy or frazzled I am with life, it's becoming even more important to nurture things that make my life feel even the more satisfying. So, the message behind this self-realizing tangent? Creative outlets are my sanctuary. And I'm so grateful for them. What's your sanctuary?

PS: These photos are from my favorite films at the TFF: Micmacs and Gainsbourg, Je t'Aime... Moi Non Plus. So good! (Micmacs is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Amélie fame, and is out in NYC theaters now!) Both are coincidentally French films with subtitles. Oh, how I love the French!


  1. I would agree that creative outlets are also my place of rejuvenation. That's why I started my blog. =)

  2. the gainsbourg film is great, non?
