I have never been to Cinefest, but I have always heard good things about it. This year will be the last year this convention is held, so I decided I would find a way to attend.

Conventions are fun whether you know anyone who attends them or not. There are enough movies screened that you could enjoy yourself without talking to a single attendee. But anyone who attends without talking to people is doing himself a disservice. You can watch movies all day long at home. Conventions are places to chat with like-minded fans, and that is what I am most looking forward to at Cinefest.

However, it would be silly to go and not watch any movies. There are quite a few I intend to see, among others, which I have bolded. I hope to see you there!
