The one thing that did stick out at the show however was the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, which ran the entire four days of the convention. Films like “Agent 15”, “The Human Beeing”, “Chronotrip” and “The Removers” were shown with the filmmakers there to present their works. Chris Gore also moderated a panel featuring several of the filmmakers whose films were being screened at the Con. The festival seemed like a great success. The selection of films was top notch, the speakers were enthusiastic to talk about their films and the room was always full of people wanting to see some prime independent film. Let’s hope that this festival carries on at the Comic-Con next year and beyond.
Yeah the Con was a little disappointing this year with not as many new things to see and definitely not as many new things to buy. I actually came home from the show with a nice wad of money and that never happens. I didn’t even have to sort through my bags to remember what it is that I squandered my money on. I was able to count off everything bought on one hand. Ah well, maybe next year will have a little more kick and for those of you Con regulars who missed the film festival, make sure you catch it next year. It’s a blast!
