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.
