The year is 2020, and coming up in a matter of days are the 92nd Academy Awards. I’ll be taking the day off from my retail job to watch them as I do every year, and I wanted to chime in with my thoughts on this year’s Best Original Song nominees. Of course, this isn’t the first year I’ve done so.
2019 marked the third and final year of the contract between the Hoboken International Film Festival and my hometown of Greenwood Lake, NY. As I don’t know whether the festival will be coming back to Greenwood Lake, NY or not, I decided to make the most of attending this year. I saw several very interesting movies and shorts, and as I did on closing night of the festival last year, I did interviews on the red carpet. Attired in formal wear, or close to it at any rate, I spoke to the stars and got some interesting thoughts on the festival, its’ films and its’ impact.
