Film Friday Weekly Round Up: For the Love of Film Blogathon Edition
Okay, so I’m sure most of you know about the For the Love of Film Blogathon to benefit the National Film Preservation Foundation. And I’m sure most of you know that Pretty Clever Film Gal was totally in for it! I mean totally in. And I’m sure many of you are also familiar with the phenomena of the super crapstastic parts of this brief joyride we call life getting in the way of the super awesome parts like watching movies, talking about movies, and writing about movies. My piece is half finished, I swear! And I’m still gonna finish it, but today is the last day of the For the Love of Film Blogathon and it won’t get finished today. So I’m gonna shake up Film Friday, with some links to my fav posts from the blogathon. The most important link is, of course, the first one. If you love movies, especially old ones, give a little to the cause and donate to the National Film Preservation Foundation!
And stay tuned… I’ve got a winner announcement coming at you very soon!
