I saw 8 films at the CIFF. Best ones were Amour and The Hunt which made strong comments on two matters confronting society at present. There were some crap ones as well but this made the good ones better.
The only minus was the selfish people who arrive late and then play with their bloody iPhones. God I hate them.
This festival is a very Canberra thing and gets bigger and better every year. Kind of Summernats for thinking people.
