Living in Holland is not always easy, the summers are always quiet (some people refer to this as cucumber time...), no movie-premieres at theaters and only re-runs of TV-shows on the telly. Unfortunately the winters are not any better. Waiting that long for the stars to show up in Holland is almost as wortwhile as Ajax winning a football match. The only way the meet the stars is to go abroad. So, I decided to go to London...again!This was the third time Britain's magazine "Empire" held a Moviecon at BFI London. This is not a movieconvention like I ussually attend, but a convention where new movies are being shown to the public. So no signing sessions, photoshoots or stalls where you can buy a DVD or a collectible.
Every year some special guests make an appearance at this Moviecon to introduce a movie or to take place in a Q&A session afterwards. This was the first time I decided to take a look at this movieconvention and it is not easy to collect here due to unknown guest appearances.
Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the new movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World signed my DVD-cover of Hot Fuzz and posed for a picture.
John Landis, director of classics like The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London and Beverly Hills Cop III, which might not be a classic, but still highly entertaining), posed for a picture.
