Venice, Day 3 & 4
Sorry for the lack of updates yesterday, but I barely had a chance to sleep! Things move at an alarming rate here, with classes from 9am till about 6pm, then screenings, and of course networking.
The Economics of Cinema, The Chain of Rights, Classics and Short Films were the subjects we've covered, plus of course all the homework we have to do. Tonight is the opening of the Mostra de Cinema (Film Fest) and I'll be scooting off in a vaporetto to the Lido in a little while to see some films.
It's really fascinating to be in the company of people from 20 od countries who all have your same job. I rarely meet other cinema managers in the UK, let alone across Europe. I'll be coming back loaded with ideas stolen from the best.
Back tomorrow with film reviews!
