Spokane International Film Festival Roundup - (2005)
The festival came to a close on Thursday night, and I just wanted to take a moment to marvel at how good of a festival it was. Is it the next Sundance? Hell, no... But this is the coolest thing to happen to Spokane film snobs in... well... ever!

My thanks to festival director Bob Glatzer and the countless others that put this thing together, thanks to the AMC for hosting, and thanks to the people in Spokane who showed up and showed that this little town does actually have some culture!

I only made it to five of the fifteen offerings (darn that student thing!) If I'm still here next year, I'll make it to more!
