2005 Melbourne International Film Festival : My diary of events

This will be my third year of buying a mini-pass to the festival and fifth festival I have been to.

Although it would be fun to do again as I did at MIFF 2002, I am not considering buying a full festival passport as it costs too much and I will probably end up films that I don't enjoy that much just because I can.

I am also going to try to get some of my friends to come to at least one screening as although there is a sense of comaraderie that develops between patrons during the festival (you see it towards the end of the festival most of all), it is still better to go with some friends.

I will try to update this page every day I go to see movies or events at the festival and I hope you enjoy reading.
Thanks - Tim Chmielewski
