If I am ever asked to give a talk on how to set up a festival, one thing I will emphasise is that it's the small things that can cause the biggest headaches!
Post-Festival, I will be sending a bouquet of flowers to my graphic designers and the printers for their patience. In the meantime, I am posting up a list of the films that are going to be featuring on the first reel at DAFF - the second reel will follow later this week. Please note that this list on the first reel is not complete and more films will be announced this evening. More information about the directors of these great films will also be posted!
