BIFF — Updated

13 February 2009

The 5th Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) gets going in earnest today. This morning I’ll be heading out to the public library to watch two documentaries made by Boulder filmmakers. Questions of Art is a short about three sculptors and their creative process; Stage IV chronicles the last nine months of a woman dying of cancer. The filmmakers will be in attendance, so with some luck I’ll persuade them both to sit for inteviews soon. As I mentioned on his post, Bob LaRue’s short Adobo shows on Saturday afternoon at the old Boulder Theater.

SATURDAY UPDATE: I attended two screenings of the Festival yesterday. Here’s a 2½ minute video of me walking between the two venues where the films were shown.

Bob LaRue stopped and said hello as I was waiting for the 2:15 film to begin. He was handing out flyers promoting his own movie, to be shown today. I was hoping to catch up with Bob and his son Joe after the movie but they’d already moved on. Bob is on the BIFF selection committee, so he’s already seen all the films in competition. I should interview him again after the Festival is over to get his take on it. I’m writing a post about my own impressions, which I hope to put up later today or tomorrow.
