Mike Young attends NaFF every year as a Gold Level Member. He makes the festival one of his major yearly vacations. He’s a Nashville native but he takes the entire eight days of the festival off work and sees as many films as he can handle. This year he has seen nearly 20 films. So he’s the perfect candidate to share what’s great about NaFF. The problem is getting him to narrow his answer to just list of three. After a bit of discussion and painful consternation Mike finally gave up his answers:
“Seeing the films, meeting filmmakers, and hanging out with festival friends.” Even though that’s technically three answers he would feel himself a failure if he didn’t squeeze in some love for his favorite film Post Tenebras Lux. In his words “I’m still not sure what it’s about but I loved it.” In our description we call this film a “challenging portrait of family life.” The film also won the award for best directing at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
