How'd you get to see it?
Sydney Film Festival (SFF), which officially closed tonight (though they screen additional films over 3 days) with Bong Joon Ho's delightful Okja, which for reasons known only to themselves Netflix allowed to be screened to an audience just shy of 3,000 people. And to top it offer Bong Joon Ho was present to present his film, where he received a rock-star welcome.
Sony Pictures seem to have a good relationship with the SFF and the Melbourne Film Festival which starts in August. Needles to say the screening of Call Me By Your Name (in the city) was almost sold out (just under 2,000 people) and was greeted at the end with an enormous round of applause and cheering. Don't know how the other screening of CMBYN which was held 'across the bridge' in the Northern suburbs was received as it's a very conservative area and not the sort of film that would play there on a commercial basis.
Anyway, 35 films in 12 days - I'm over it and my 3 cats are glad to have me back on a full-time basis, at least until we drive down for the Melbourne Film Festival in about 6 weeks.
