Festival IntroductionEdit

The following introduction was written by Fargo Theatre Executive Director Margie Bailly, and appeared in the program:

In the final days preceding the 2nd Annual Fargo Film Festival my mind has been filled with the frenzied chaos of last-minute festival details offset by the compelling, confounding images of the 2002 Olympics. Occasionally, festival details have merged with an Olympic event, giving me the sensation of a 30-person bobsled team careening down the hill toward a giant silver screen.
With the combined strength of this volunteer "bobsled" team, the artistic power of 30+ extraordinary film makers and the widespread community support from throughout the region, we've created a film festival of olympic proportion (at least in spirit) without the distracting controversy. I'm extremely grateful for the challenge of the race, the strength of the team and the remarkable talent of the film makers.
Let the films begin!
