The first annual Running Film Festival (RFF) kicked off today, July 3rd and runs until Saturday, July 5th at Columbia Hall (corner of University and 13th Street) in Eugene, OR. The film festival has met with major success from the fans and media alike.
This film festival based on running films is unlike anything else in the United States. A total of 19 movies are to be previewed, and select films have director question and answer sessions afterwards. Today, I was especially taken by Chasing Bolt, a Matt Taylor film chronicling the journey of 100-meter record holder Usain Bolt to Beijing. What is interesting is that the project was put together well before Bolt's run at the 100-meters emerged on the scene.
