I've no idea what it's going to be like but from what I can remember of the press launch (there was quite a lot of free champagne) there will be somewhere in the region of 14.2 billion separate events occurring over the next three days. Basically if you've ever seen a film, there will be something there for you.
If you're not going to be there then I hope to God you're interested in what goes on, because I'm about to spend the whole weekend banging on about it here and on Twitter, and possibly even on Facebook if I can remember my password. I've got a new phone just for the occasion so that the quality of photojournalism is slightly higher than it was for my press launch post. The phone was quite expensive but I asked Empire's news editor Chris Hewitt if he'd foot the bill and he said "absolutely no chance and how did you get my number?", so fingers crossed!
If you are going to be there, then whatever you do clear a space in your schedule for these two events:
So see you there and then, unless I don't, in which case see you some other time and place, or not at all. I'm a busy man you know, I can't just pop round for tea can I?
