Post Festival Depression Hits Hard After the St. John’s Intl Film Fest.I was the Official blogger of the St. John’s Intl Film Festival. Rachel Peters and I shot this mockumentary 2 weeks after the festival, about our struggle coping being back in the “centre of the universe.” That’s what St. John’sers affectionately call Toronto.
Yes, this video is full of inside jokes. So here’s a little glossary that may help.
Kelly Davis – is the unsinkable festival director
NIFCO – the Newfoundland Independent Film Coop
Snowball – the amazing dancing cockatiel that became our mascot at the fest
Noreen Golfman – is the festival CEO/founder
Panfried cod tongues – are a delicacy – and are very yummy. You missed out Megan!
“The Song” – is the theme song of the festival’s 2007 animated trailer, which was animated by Rachel Peters, and opened every screening.
Rosemary House – is a producer/director in St. John’s. She hosted a lovely luncheon at her home for all the delegates of the fest, which until we got there, we thought was the name of the Organization ( like Ronald McDonald House”. )
Barbara Doran – “Random Passage” producer whose latest film opened up the film fest.
And we hula-hooped at the closing party.
Sorry for the bad sound. We shot fast and dirty.
