Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Moebius and Why Don't You Play in Hell! Detective Downs sounds funny as well :))

By the way I've seen The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears & The Dirties (also playing at the fest) and I can recommend both! I also met the filmmakers and they're the nicest people, hope you get to meet them because they're great!

THE DIRTIES is incredible. Watched it the other night. Definitely a must see at the fest.
