You've got the foundation of an artist with a drive toward the future, you know how to handle the stages of mind bending quality at Monmouth Film Festival (MFF) but finding the perfect film festival date is hard- I don't mean the cute kid next door you've been eyeing for years or your coworker who occasionally says hello whilst filling their coffee mug - I mean finding your spirit animal, soulmate, comrade among films because let's be real two days filled with awesome- you've got to narrow down all the conversation starters and only take one topic on a date at a time - don't overwhelm the people who weren't at MFF, they need to feel like they were there in a particular moment - play by play - think football recaps...
So what are you? Not zodiac or supernatural being but more romance, comedy, short film long etc?...maybe let's try checking a box:
