First Day at LFF

So today was my first day volunteering at the BFI London Film Festival! I got there at midday, and spent the afternoon filling bags with festival programmes for the Film Festival Delegates, and getting to know all the other lovely volunteers who I'l be spending the next two weeks with. Most people there are older than me, and a lot of them are currently doing MAs in film or screenwriting, or have just completed BAs in film-related subjects, so it was really interesting to talk to them and find out where they've come from and what their career plans are, now that they are in their final years of study, or have just finished.

I am working Wednesday evening, which is the LFF Gala Opening Night, so that will be exciting - I am seriously looking forward to it. I'm also working on Friday night, and a lot of next week but nothing is confirmed yet (but I hope to be able to do as many shifts as possible!)

I also went shopping before I turned up to volunteer, and bought this top with the last of my birthday money - it's Carin Wester for Urban Outfitters. Purple sheer, with a keyhole at the back, and a ribbon tie - I love it!
