Longtime SXSW panelist and friend Chris Gore is about to release the third edition of his popular Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide.
Hot off the heels of the rabid following he found with the IFC game show Ultimate Film Fanatic, Chris’ latest “ultimate” endeavor will be available in the next few weeks.
While browsing some information about this next edition, I noticed that the cover of the new edition teases to unravel the secrets of all the film festivals, including SXSW. This is a great selling point to me. I wanna know what secrets Chris has discovered about us. I hate to say it, but I doubt there’s much dirt to be found. Probably some secrets, but no dirty laundry or gossip. I’ll try better for the fourth edition.
Seriously, though, Chris’ book is worth picking up. In a world full of film festivals, there are very few valuable resources to help steer filmmakers and production companies. This book should be able to help with that. Rumor has it there’s a photo of me in this new edition. The real secret I’m waiting to unravel is how bad I look (it was taken at a party, there’s a margarita or two involved, I believe).
