"I really enjoyed my trip to Vancouver International Film Festival for the N.American premiere of The Nest! The cinemas were packed, the screenings went well and I met some really interesting directors and saw some fantastic films. All in all a fantastic experience although I ended up slightly worse for wear from all the festival’s free parties!"
