So, I got an email about the Sydney Film Festival and a link to its enews release which revealed the following:
Our Official Competition criterion celebrates filmmakers who are bold, adventurous risk-takers; who strive for the unique and the unexpected. The annual search for twelve films that embrace these beguiling values is one of the great pleasures of the job. The first three to be announced for this year's line-up are the Australian Premieres of the critically acclaimed adaptation of Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood by Laotian director Tran Anh Hung; award-winning Greek drama Attenberg and the highly-anticipated second feature from the director of Me and You and Everyone We Know, Miranda July's The Future.
Yeah, can you guess which one I'm excited about? Glad I didn't, uh, watch it illegally. I think I can wait till the Festival. It starts the 8th June and runs until the 19th of the same month. EXCITED!
