Jarod is in New York this weekend for the second stop of the Avid “Make Your Mark” Tour. Next weekend, though, both myself and SXSW’s Stephanie Noone will be making individual trips to two different film festivals in the Northeastern part of this continent. I have jury duty for the Hamptons Film Festival, which I’m excited to attend, as it’s one of the regional U.S. fests I’ve always heard great things about. While I’m there, Stephanie will attend the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal. Plus, that same weekend SXSW co-founder Louis Black will do his stop on the Avid tour. But that’s in L.A., so it doesn’t really work within my whole “eastern promises” thing.
