I love being with Francis anywhere, but being with him here and opening at the TIFF is a real treat. The audience and press are so genuine and open to film. It’s been a strong festival in the world for many many years. I’ve been Many times but this one is my favorite. I’ve got a party tomorrow night and invited one of our composers the amazing Dan Deacon to perform a bit.
There was a special short from festival participants about 9.11 and the moment of impact for the world and the festival. It was moving and important. It aired just before TWIXT. The audience was moved. I sat next to my director and we wept a little together. During our film as well!
I laughed and cried- what else can you ask for out of film Francis Ford Coppola made in his back yard.
