That sounds like a country song - and it's a great tune to hear.
We very much encourage filmmakers to support each other in ramping up to the festival, during the craziness that is the festival - and for as long as you're on the circuit. You never know, you might be able to room together and save some bucks when you find yourselves at the same screenings down the road. We've had alumni get together on projects that have come back to screen years later.
So let the networking begin!
