Contributors József Fülöp Best film festival? Berlinale - we are in competition, no question! If you were not an animator, what would you be? A musician. Your secret crush? I am still waiting for that... What do you look forward to most at a film festival? To watch, to meet! Favourite short film on Daazo? Swarming. Hitchcock or Kubrick? Kubrick!

Domenico La Porta Best film festival? e Sitges Film Festival. e location by the sea, the perfect timing, events like the Zombie walk or the Fantastic night combined with a cutting edge programmation help wrapping a surreal universe around genre film lovers. If you were not a film journalist, what would you be? Probably someone being paid to watch films… oh, wait... Your secret crush? It used to be Vera Farmiga but since I’ve told her, I can’t think of a new secret one...

What do you look forward to most at a film festival? Meeting people around the same centre of interests. Since the death of video clubs, festivals are where you meet those... Favourite short film on Daazo? at would be unfair to most of the best films on Daazo. Hitchcock or Kubrick? *K*U*B*R*I*C*K*

Michał Oleszczyk Best film festival? Toronto International Film Festival. e programming, the setting, the people - everything is just about perfect. If you were not a film journalist/critic, what would you be? A high school teacher in the United States, which is still my biggest dream. Your secret crush? Joan Cusack. And Paul Rudd. Not so secret now, I guess. What do you look forward to most at a film festival? Lack of pushiness and physical struggle. I like places that are laid back. Favourite short film on Daazo? Oh Willy... Hitchcock or Kubrick? Hitchcock.

Cristina Grosan Best film festival? e Berlinale. Awesome and varied films, both short and long, one type of queue (if you’ve ever queued in Cannes, you know what I mean) and a culturally damn interesting city. What would you be if you were not a filmmaker/ art designer? I tried acting, but I sucked. Your secret crush? Crush - not much of a secret as it is guilty: Miranda July. I'm a groupie. I'd rather cut a limb than lend you one of her books. (I'm still waiting for you to return that last one I lent you - yes, you! I hope you are reading this!) What do you look forward to most at a film festival? Sure, good films and parties are a must. But it's that festivity and enthusiasm in the air that makes even the most antisocial of us open and curious. Favourite short film on Daazo? Judit Kael, e Faint Possibility of Drowning Hitchcock or Kubrick? Kubrick. Nice guy. We share a birthday. I think we would have got along really well.
