The screening at Alliance Francaise was held on Tuesday October 21st at 8:00pm. Cocktails were served and the foyer was filling up. Our audience was small, but well selected; from AFM members to filmmakers and journalists. This was one of our promotional events to gear up for our Asian debut at Cinemanila.
After a few press interviews with Jeff and Mateo, the crowd headed into the private screening room. Olivier Dintiger, Director of Alliance Francaise de Manille introduced Ana, Mateo and Jeff. The lights dimmed for the start of the film and Ana VJ’d the first act. We then passed the remote control around the room to let the audience take control in the sequencing of the rest of the film. Some viewers were more timid with clicking, allowing scenes to play through. Others were much bolder and clicked more frequently. This was probably the best audience cut I’ve seen so far. Not only did the audience get the full stories of all three characters, but they found many of the best clicking sequences. After the credits rolled, the audience was eager to ask the filmmakers their questions. The questions were intelligent and honest, and centered around the unique process of interactive filmmaking.
A short reception followed and the crowd got to mingle with the filmmakers over French wine and kabobs. A special thank you goes out to Olivier Dintinger, Director, Sabrina Durand, Cultural Officer, Earl Parco, Cultural Officer, Mang Albert, Technician and the rest of the Alliance Francaise team for co-sponsoring this successful event.
