10 Reasons To Attend The True/False Film Fest

For years, I’ve heard rumors about the  True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri. Rumors that it’s hands-down the best curated documentary film festival around.  Rumors of epic parades.  Rumors of smart and quirky and hilarious events galore.  Rumors of a college town and even some of the most unexpected...

10 Tips For Sundance Film Festival Attendees

For those of you who missed it, I had the chance to travel to Park City last month with Sarah to cover the Sundance Film Festival.  And we had a blast! We soaked in the beauty of Utah, met all sorts of great people, ate some (mostly) great food, and...

Europe 2012: London (Part Two)

We have reached the end! After 3.5 weeks abroad in Europe, our final destination was a quick day back in London before flying home.  Of the six group members remaining, I was one of two who had spent five days in the city prior to leaving for Oxford and...

Europe 2012: Oxford

After Sara’s wedding in Shrewsbury, we made our way to Oxford.  At this point, we still had all 8 of us in the group, although Nathan and Kerry left a day early to make it back to the States for New Year’s Eve.  But as you will see, those...

Europe 2012: Shrewsbury

Europe 2012: London

Europe 2012: Savona

Our fourth stop with the Costa Pacifica was the small town of Savona.  Clearly, it was a bit of a cloudy day.  And everyone seemed a little tired after Rome, so we chose to stay near the ship and just explore the town right next to the port.  (Can...
