On a lighter note... I just received this invite from Film Oregon Alliance

(Bend, OR) – The Sisters Movie House, Film Oregon Alliance and Sisters Art Works are excited to welcome "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke to Sisters, Oregon for "A Conversation with Catherine Hardwicke" and the screening of her romance/thriller "Twilight" which was filmed in its entirety in various locations throughout Oregon. The "Conversation" will be, Saturday, November 29th from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Sisters Art Works building located at 204 West Adams Street in Sisters, Oregon. Later Saturday evening, Ms. Hardwicke will be hosting a screening of "Twilight" at The Sisters Movie House.

The "Conversation" will include an in-depth discussion with Ms. Hardwicke moderated by Film Oregon Alliance Director of Cinema Arts Education Patricia West-Del Ruth followed by a Q&A session with attendees. There is no cost to FOA members to attend the "Conversation" event; however, donations to FOA are greatly appreciated. Seating is limited and you must be a registered member of FilmOregon.org to receive an invitation. Invitees must RSVP to reserve their seats and all seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ms. Hardwicke had this to say, "I'm looking forward to meeting some of the filmmakers and other industry folks from the Central Oregon area. I love Oregon – you've got gorgeous locations! I wanna share my experience making "Twilight" with you guys – thanks to Lisa Clausen of Sisters Movie House, Film Oregon Alliance and Sisters Art Works for organizing this event. It's gonna be fun!"
You can register for a free membership at the Film Oregon Alliance website. I don't know yet if I can go... anyone want to come along if I do?

Wow! That is very cool. But it's a bit weird that they are "screening" the movie AFTER it's open to the public. Whatever. I would have loved to come with you, but I think we are going to be out of town that day! Have fun!

I'm guessing you've read the books and like them? I've been avoiding them like the plague :)

I haven't read the series yet, but have heard from enough people who have loved the Twilight series that I'm planning on reading the books.

How awesome that you get to be there!

They're screening the movie with the DIRECTOR in the house for Q&A after! That's the cool thing. Much of it was filmed in Central Oregon.

Katya is flipping out. We TOTALLY want to go. Can we get two tickets through you or should we get them ourselves. We are so there!!

I just reserved our tickets at the Sisters Movie House. We are so excited! I guess that there is now a waiting list for the talk.

Maybe we could get together for coffee or something beforehand.
