the cell phone call heard 'round the world...

As someone who has been guilty of checking my Blackberry during a festival screening (even though I’d never actually answer it during a film)…I just can’t resist posting a bit of gossip that made it all the way back to the U.S. today, via a film festival head who sent me the following in an email message tonight:

Just heard that a major American fest director spends his time in screenings at Pusan text messaging people and even having conversations on the cell phone. Wonder if he would stand for that at his 11 day festival. Well actually I know a lot of it goes on there but shouldn’t we all be setting good examples?
