Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival: Same Old Story

The Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival 2009 is one of the most famous film festivals in the world. The Festival draws over 50,000 people in its one week movie and film extravaganza.
The festival starts on February 26th and run through March 2nd with closing ceremonies on March 3rd.

Some of the films that will be showing is (cough) mine; Same Old Story: A Trip Back 20 years, Crows Zero 2 (opening), and Madagascar 2 (closing). Of course there are too many more to
mention, but the festival brings a lot of international talented filmmakers together and allows them a huge venue to promote their films.

Though Yubari itself is very small (and bankrupt) it didn't stop the film festival from continuing its name's legacy. If you are in Japan during the time of the festival I really recommend you attend. It is an experience you will never forget and a culture you will always remember.

But I love me Polos, or Rugby shirts, button ups, anything with a collar. I actually prefer the womens cut on most of these, although until fairly recently there weren't many options so I had to go with mens.

I'm curious as to what can become of a decent film being submitted to the Sundance? Say it comes close to winning an award, what kind of potential things can happen to benefit the film after the festival?
