Last night we had the pleasure of attending Gasparilla International Film Festival’s Cinema Soiree. Esteban was invited as a guest due to his participation in the festival as a judge.
Sadly we did not know about this until a phone call last Friday night after the Festival already started.
Nevertheless GIFF extended an invitation to us to attend a pleasant evening among other Cinema-philes, Sponsors, Judges and Event Coordinators. Esteban and I were just expecting to pop in say our “Hello’s” stay for a drink and then pop back out. But the company and atmosphere and the same passion for film and cinema kept us till the end.
We met some very interesting locals that we were not aware of their contribution to the film community in the Tampa/Hillsborough St. Pete/Pinellas area.
It’s always great to meet such inspiring and inspired people. Looking forward to seeing more at GIFF’s Closing Night tomorrow!
