Sun Valley Film Festival: There and Back Again, Part 1

It is nearly 11 PM on Tuesday, March 12th, and I am no where near wanting to go to bed. In fact, I just opened a beer. And so did Gene. At 7 AM on Thursday, we’ll be hitting the road and stuffing five people in our little Honda Civic, named Falcore, and heading to Sun Valley for the second annual Sun Valley Film Festival. We will be spending four glorious days sharing a condo with some of the best filmmaking collaborating friends this side of the Mississippi, and watching tons of independent film from Idaho and the world. There will be celebrities – and I’m not talking about the stars from our music video, When Frida Became – but some lesser known actors like Jodie Foster. We are ecstatic and yes, to some degree a little nervous, and looking forward to our first film festival.

When Frida Became was accepted into Sandpoint Film Festival in 2012, but we were unable to attend as we had just moved into our first house the weekend before. Jared Hallock and Katie Preston of Project213 were able to go and REPRESENT us proudly. They returned with nothing but fun stories to tell and an urge to create something for next year. So, with their great reviews, we’re prepping ourselves for what could be the best weekend of our lives.

I’ll try to keep up on the Two Cats Fighting blog while there, but I can’t guarantee anything. I mean, if Jodie Foster wants to hang out I’m not going to ask for a rain-check because I need to update our three fans as to what we did at the festival that day. But I will do my best to keep up on Twitter, you can find me at @stephsmile and also on foursquare as Stephanie Michelle Lokelani.

Peace Out Film Lovers,
