er You're exhausted. You just watched three features in a row and you have two hours to kill until your next meeting. Where do you go?
gm My first choice would be to take a nap. When I'm ambitious, however, I try to carve out a couple of hours at the end of my trip to escape the festival hub and explore Berlin. If I need to get a last minute Valentine’s Day gift I head to the boutiques in Mitte; if I need more culture I head to Museum Island; and if I just want to wander, I head to Kreuzberg.
er You're about to watch a million movies. Do you watch in-flight movies on the way to a film festival?
gm I've mastered the art of sleeping on planes, so usually I'll watch the start of an in-flight film en route and the other half on the way back. If I'm not sleeping the majority of the flight there's a problem. I do feel like certain films are ideal for watching on planes. For example, if you're excited to see something, not willing to pay for the in-cinema experience, and it's not available on any of the streaming services yet, it's the perfect plane film.
er You travel a lot for work. What are your hacks for transatlantic flights?
gm I try to be as organized as possible before I leave, whether that be through pre-emptively trying to adjust to the time zone I'm travelling to or making sure my schedule is locked so I don't have to improvise in a sleep-deprived state.
