Bravest moment - Red Buttons doing Cagney to Cagney (One, Two, Three)
The 'phew' award - after two years of early film screw-ups (no subs for Incendies, audio mess-up for On the Ice) everything went very smoothly apart from a couple of Cagney gaps and Sunset Boulevard being out of sync.
Oddest trend - people turning up late for the film - a LOT of people. Do they all now expect hours of ads and missed this was a festival?
A brilliant festival this year. So many packed houses, and none of the rubbish we normally get at the cinema these days. Can't wait till next year.
