I have about a week to catch my breath and enjoy some quality time with my loved ones, before I’m off again for more film events… this time, in America. Next week, I’m participating on a jury-panel-thingy for the IFP Minnesota’s annual McKnight Fellowship awards. Joining me for a few days in the lovely Twin Cities, are fellow jurors/panelists Joe Swanberg and Chris Eyre. Unfortunately, we’ll be precisely a month too early to catch Prince perform at his neighborhood Macy’s. Dammit.
Then, almost immediately, I get back on a plane and head over to Silver Spring, Maryland for this year’s Silverdocs festival. I’m on the feature doc jury, along with Red Envelope’s Liesl Copland and Oscar-winning doc-maker Ross Kauffman. It looks like a great lineup, so I can’t wait.
UPDATE: Oh, I forgot to add… our own Lya Guerra will be at the Seattle International Film Festival in mid-June, as part of the shorts jury. Let’s get ready to deliberate!
