This was definitely one of the stranger panels I have been on in a while. In the basement of a bar in Chinatown, it felt like we should be playing pool and drinking whiskey instead of talking about distribution. Even so, the discussion was interesting, I learned a lot and it is always nice to see old friends (and make new ones!) As an added bonus, Team Queen won Best Music Video the next night and I rocked out at the awards ceremony (in midtown no less). Hmmm. Maybe E.vil City Film Fest doesn’t stand for East Village Film Festival after all!
