Things are getting exciting on Nantucket as we prepare for the 2004 Film Festival. One of the more interesting aspects of the programming job is working with the print traffic folks to ensure that all of the films arrive on time and safely for their screenings. Nantucket, being an island (and one that often gets fogged in), is a unique place to work on print traffic. We try to get prints to arrive as early as possible, but many distributors and filmmakers are reluctant to send them out ahead of their normal schedule. Despite our constant pleas for flexibility, we have run into some interesting print events already this year. Needless to say, it looks like we are on track for a successful festival.
Of course, it’s not ALWAYS fogged in….
