I've been on the Gold Coast in Queensland this week to co-host the Asia Pacific Screen Awards televised internationally on CNN. Some terrific films were in contention including Australian Warwick Thornton's Samson and Delilah (which won Best Film) and About Elly which won Best Screenplay for Iranian director Asghar Farhadi. I have seen them both and urge you to seek them out at your nearest arthouse cinemas or DVD stores.
While the surrounds were magnificent there was sadly no time for a daily blog - and even more tragically no time to eat properly. A few mints and some cold party pies backstage were my main sustenance.
At least the room service continental breakfast at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa was worth capturing... cereal, tea, fruit juice, tropical fruit plate,and pastries
