If you love movies you gotta love Q&A screening events where you get to watch the film, most times first, and then ask all your questions to the filmmakers live!
I’m creating this session to post about Q&A screening events, to support the creators of Q&A events and the filmmakers who put themselves in front of the audience never knowing what the hell they are going to ask them, and to bring you information of where you can attend Q&A events.
3 MASSIVE REASONS TO ATTEND Q&A SCREENING EVENTS:
1 –Be the first to watch to the movie!!!(yes – most Q&A screening events are advanced screenings of the movie, so that’s pretty cool)
2 –Meet the filmmakers!!!(yes – MEET THE FILMMAKERS – meeting the filmmaker, depending on the event and of the filmmaker you might even have a chance to have a chat with the filmmaker if you were shy to ask your question out loud in front of the whole audience – meeting your favorite filmmaker and having the chance to hear then talking about the production process live, is like a session of INSPIRATION ON ESTEROIDS – is something that stays with you for a long time, specially if you are in the film industry as well, you get to learn a lot from them, is like a mini workshop – among many amazing filmmaker which I’ve met on Q&A events, some of my favorites were Quentin Tarantino at the “Inglourious Barterds” event at the State Theatre, Danny Boyle at the “Sunshine” event at the Bondi Junction Greater Union , and most recently, Baz Luhrmann at the “Strictly Ballroom the Musical” media launch event at Town Hall.
3 -Ask whatever you want to the filmmaker!!! (again, specially as a filmmaker, it is amazing to find out how they made all that happen, and sometimes we only get to see all the final results and all the glory, and we might think that we never stand a chance, but at Q&A events many filmmakers get to open their heart, and we find out the obstacles that they had as well, just like us, and how they overcome the obstacles and achieved great success, and made not only their dream come true, but the dream of many others in their team)

“Love Exposure” covers everything, action, love, religion, lost, very hard family issues, lots of fight, and most of all, lots of passion, all the characters are so out of control passionate, that the passion is contagious. The film goes for 4 hours, but is definitely 4 hours well spent, you want it to keep going even after it’s finished.
The credits say that is based on real events, which is pretty f*** if they are, because many of issues in the film are very hard, I hope that just the love stories are based in real events, so the real people who lived the real events didn’t have to go through some of the very bad things in it in real life.
I love this film so much, that I’m also going to share the trailer here.

Also found this amazing Q&A videos, special thanks to the New York Asian Film Festival for interviewing Sion Sono, and for making the interview available on Youtube.
(shame the first woman had the outrageous question of why he didnt make the film shorter because she was tired of sitting for 4 hours, which made him waste precious 4 minutes answering her question, which he did gracefully and witty)
