    You should take a close look at Someone You Love – The HPV Epidemic documentary doing a west coast premiere at Carmel Film Festival.

    Quick question – since Whiplash and Nightcrawler will have already been released in theaters, does the festival plan on doing anything special with these screenings (ie Q&A)? If not, I’m just wondering why I wouldn’t see them at my local theaters? I saw someone had commented on this earlier on Facebook, but it’s gone now. Also, do you know if you can buy individual tickets?

    Dreamworks panel sounds cool!

    Anybody know what’s up with their website though? No 2014 info on there, it’s all from last year. Variety – where’d you get this info from?

    PS used to have an awesome Instagram (back in the Carmel Art and Film days) but the new one is lacking. Too bad
