I'm not sure if this came across or not, but I friggin loved South By Southwest Film Festival. I cannot believe I have never done this before. I should just kick myself. I was very tired on some days due to lack of sleep and trying to maintain some half day work schedules, but it didn't effect my enjoyment at all. I really never knew sitting on my butt all day watching films could get so tiring, but indeed it can. It also made me remember my love of film. With the crap that the studios churn out, I had truly begun to think that I would never enjoy film again. Oh, I was so wrong. I just have to go to festivals or whatever and find the films the studios don't put out. Yes, some will get distribution, but I'm betting a lot don't. And if this was one of the few chances to see some of those possible lost gems, then I feel honored.
