Strategy Meeting

Brunch at my place to try to figure out how to win this time. We came in second in November in the Ideablob contest. We have been gathering votes, registering friends who want to support us and generally preparing for a big push next month. Chang Hun's friends in Korea are running into some kind of web problem, but Taek's friends did not have the same issue. Can is working on his Turkish pals, Mara's confirming her Italian and Croatian links and Benjm has gotten almost a hundred from France. The contest this month is looking like it will take double the votes of last month to win - ouch. Nevertheless we are forging ahead with our plan - next month is a clean slate. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

You can't vote yet. You have to wait for February. Then we have to win a weekly sprint, and then we have to take the finals at the end of the month. If you only want to be bothered once, wait until the end of February. You can register now, just to be ready, at But hold that vote for now.

Going to Lucca

We've been invited back to Italy - Lucca this time - to exhibit shorts from the festival at the 4th annual Women Traveller's Weekend. All the films exhibited will have to be subtitled in Italian, so we're planning on showing a combination of the films that screened last year in Lucarno and a few new ones. Stay tuned for more info.
