Cirque de Livre is a writers' conference run by Bob Nelson of Brick Cave Media. This was its first year and it occupied a number of small independent venues in Mesa, AZ. I was a participant at the event, doing some panels, signings and even a reading, which I thoroughly enjoyed and hope to do again.
My events have usually been either sci-fi, horror or steampunk, occasionally more than one at once, but this time I got to build a set around the theme of books. I located films not only about books but writers, libraries and the process of writing itself.
I screened to a small but enthusiastic audience at Volstead Pub in downtown Mesa. I've never run a mini-film festival in a coffee house, café and pub before and enjoyed the experience.
Even at short notice, Aaron Seever kindly came out to support the screening of his film, Penelope Fortesque: Romance Novelist and he brought along two members of his cast: Leslie Wall and Kasey Kempton. We had a fun Q&A with much audience participation. Thanks, folks!
