Valletta Film Festival 2018 – Part 2
Here is part 2 of our Valletta Film Festival Report from our very own Laetitia who is acting as a volunteer at the festival!
Tuesday 12th of June – ‘Don’t forget me’ showing at PTR
Tonight, I am not working as a volunteer and so can simply enjoy the movie ‘Don’t forget me’ together with my partner.
The temperature tonight is just perfect for watching this movie outside at Pjazza Teatru Rjal (PTR)
The movie is a love story about two young people from Tel Aviv : Tom and Neil. Tom lives in a closed institute as she has eating disorder whereas Neil roams the streets with a tuba, convinced he will leave with a popular band for a European tour. After a chance visit to the institute, Neil flees onto the streets with Tom and promises her she can leave with him.
This movie is definitely my favourite one of this festival (so far ;-)). I just loved the story, the characters and actors but also the way it was filmed and the music.
Nitai GVIRTZ, playing Neil and writer of this movie, answers the audience’s questions at the end of the screening. Each film has a Q&A session allowing the audience to interact with the film makers of each screening and have their questions about the film answered.
Looking ahead – Friday, Saturday and Sunday
I am really looking forward to the weekend with many great events planned starting tonight Friday 15th June with Anchor and Hope at 9pm at PTR
