I was super busy in early February volunteering for the Victoria Film Festival. I’d never had a chance to go before, but I will definitely be involved in the future. I helped set up for the opening gala, took photographs at a bunch of events, and did a venue shift near the end. I also met some awesome people and had fun at the wrap party. I saw two full films and part of two others. Like Dandelion Dust was very interesting and well acted by all and A Perfect Day was fascinating, depressing, and confusing all at once. I hope to see more next year. I’d also like to get more involved with volunteering at the venues and events. Photography was fun, but I love to be a part of events like these instead of observing them from behind the lens.
Took some photos of happy volunteers and lines at Capitol 6 on the first Saturday night for the showings of Like Dandelion Dust and Cooper’s Camera. It seemed like a fun place to volunteer.
Took a few shots at the Empire Music Lounge at Whitebird, where they had a band playing and some awesome lighting.
I also took a few photos at the Odeon showing of Finding Farley. The parts of it I got to see were pretty interesting and awe-inspiring.
