Have you ever festivals went to bed late at night knowing you must awaken early in the morning to yet another long day's work? You wake up feeling groggy, no quite yourself. You continue to do this day in and day out. Did you ever stop to consider what effect this could be having on your body? Sleep deprivation can have serious consequences.

In short, they had no idea how to market the film. Trailers for the movie were released in mid-2007 and an October release date for that year was announced, but Halloween came and went that year without the movie making it into theaters. Ever since, Dougherty has managed to get the film run in a few film festivals and marathons, but now you can watch it at home: it was just released on DVD and BluRay today.

Bear in mind that food and drink costs within festival parks will often be expensive. You might want to check your ticket to see whether you're allowed to bring in your own food - it's usually specified on the back of the ticket.
