I always look forward to the annual Cinequest Film Festival in Downtown San Jose. It's a wonderful celebration of film and acting, and we don't get that much in Silicon Valley. It's also one of the few times out of the year that I will go to the theater to watch an independent film. There are also a bunch of opportunities to meet filmmakers and actors after the films and at events during the festival. Try to see a few films playing at the historic California Theatre - it is truly a memorable cinematic experience!

I attended the Cinequest 2010 opening night screening yesterday and it was such an amazing event. It was my first time at the California Theatre. I did not even know such a beautiful theater exists in San Jose.
I am glad to have found out about this film festival. The opening film was The Good Heart. I love the lighthearted humors. It was touching in a quirky way. Paul Dano was such a convincing actor.
The crowd at the E&O after party were an educated bunch - mostly people in the film industry or advert film lovers. It was a nice change from the normal party scene. The restaurant was very crowded though. The staff at the restaurant had done a great job to accommodate everyone. (By the way, the Corn Fritters at E&O were awesome as usual.)
I will be back in a couple days for my indie movie fix!

This was my first film festival and I was incredibly surprised. The event was well planned and the staff and other viewers were very friendly. The after party was a ton of fun and a great way to meet other movie buffs.
