This year a special award, Glory To The Filmmaker, was handed out to Academy Award winning actor Al Pacino (Scarface, Heat, The Godfather). Actually he was the main reason I was willing to check out the Venice Filmfestival. So you can imagine I was very glad to meet the legendary actor in person. He signed my filmcells of "Scarface" and "Ocean's 13" and thanks to Samantha the poster of "Heat". And I was even more happy when he posed for a picture with me! Although looking back I have to admit that it's not easy collecting in Venice but I'm happy that I went anyway!
