Since I spent most of my time in screenings, watching panels or writing on-the-spot blogs, there’s still much more coverage to come. Jeff Otto’s interview with Chuck D will be making its way to the site this week, as will my own interviews with the filmmakers and cast of “Battle in Seattle.” So if you click on a link and it isn’t live yet, check back in a day or two and it will be.

At the end of the day, I had a brilliant time at the festival and that was primarily due to the kindness and professionalism of everybody from the volunteers to the heads of the festival. Special thanks for making this festival a blast go out to Michael Cain, Levi Elder, James Faust, Sarah Harris, Gina Lang, Taya Varnichpun, John Wildman and, honestly, everyone else associated with putting this festival together and making sure that I didn’t miss out on the time of my life. Thank you!
