Went to the Women in Independent Film networking party tonight. First of all, I think it's funny how the English refer to it as a networking "party." The English network in a different way to the Japanese. The English get drunk, then they can network. I guess we got drunk in Japan as well, but there seemed to be more networking and less drinking. Anyway, there were about 150 young desperate women filmmakers, me included. Is that what it is to be a woman in independent film? Most everyone was a director looking for a producer, which means, they were looking for someone to find them money. The producers were mobbed. In any case, it's good to go to these things. It's good to keep up the skill of networking.
