It's day 14 of the Film Festival... Two more to go. And I can tell you honestly, I am very, very tired.
It has been a busy year with a large number of sold-out sessions. It may not sound bad, but our theatre seats 430 people, so a sell out means a lot of people. And that means a lot of coffees, wine and ice-cream.
On top of serving all those people, I have had to see a lot of films. It hasn't been a huge year in that respect. I think I've seen 15 or 16 in the past 2 weeks. Some years I've done over 70, but that was before I had children and when I was working for the Festival rather than running a venue.
I love the Festival. I love the audiences who are all passionate film lovers. But by this stage, I'm ready for it to end.
But by the end of next week, I can guarantee I'll be wishing it was happening again because it's really boring when there aren't so many customers...
But at least next week I can get back to revising my book without distraction. Or at least, not so many distractions.
Do you have a film festival near you? Is it awesome?
