Just like like year I’m a volunteer at the French Film Festival.
By volunteering I get to see the films for free. I try to sign up for as many slots I can so I get my fix of French movies, which to be frank I don’t watch enough (and every years after the festival tell myself I should make more of an effort!!)
For the little side note. I was waiting in between movies when a woman approached me. I asked her if she was a volunteer…. she replied she was the leading actress of the movie!!! She was here for the Q&A after the projection.
If you need anybody “putting their foot in their mouth” for your next event I’m up for hire 😩
Tomorrow is the Opening Gala (weird as it’s 3 days after the start of the Festival!) and last year I asked VIP (Ambassadors, big sponsors, local personalities, etc) to repeat their names so many time to check them off the listing…. I’m sure I made them feel really good about their VIP status. Let’s hope for the best for this year event 😜.
