My mom is a film festival nut. She used to take her vacation time to cram in as many films as she could. We all know that we should not expect to see her much during the two plus weeks the festival runs. We've already started to prepare our son for how little he will see Grandma. The tears have started.
She takes her festival going pretty seriously, especially now that she’s retired. Here is her film festival survival kit. I hope it comes in handy. Good luck and enjoy.
