    Anyone else had trouble purchasing items on the ABFF site lately? It seems like everything I click on now is saying "There are no products matching the selection." Hope that doesn't mean everything is sold out?

    I'm traveling by train tomorrow. Will we be meeting as a group at some point during the fest? It would be nice to meet some of you.

      Safe travels. There is no official group meeting planned, but if you want to use meetup to schedule something feel free. Also, some people will just add comments as to plans for the day because life can be spontaneous and plans change based upon interst and opportunity.

    I started developing a tentative itinerary (for me) for Saturday:
    11:30am - 25 to Life
    2:30pm - Spike Lee Tribute
    that's as far as I got so far... anyone planning to check out 1 or both of these?

    Since the weekend pass is just for the weekend (Saturday & Sunday) does anyone know the price for the individual events Friday? I'm thinking about attending the Spike Lee event the Friday evening and maybe another one of the events afterwards.

      I looked through the site pretty thoroughly and didn't see anything about individual event tickets so I guess the pass only rule may be applicable to Friday... alas.

      I still didn't find any tickets for the Friday event. The Saturday tickets honoring Spike Lee are $40 http://shopabff.com/s...­

    Today is the last day to buy passes. Also people should check the movie schedule and purchase individual tickets to classes and films they are sure they will attend.

      Great. I'm not sure if you have been in the past. You will make a lot of contacts. The DC group may meet in the hotel one day for happy hour. Most people have already booked passes, hotels, and transportation.

    megabus is on sale during these dates. Get your $1 bus ticket up there. Some Monday tickets were only $1 on the way home, Sunday was $15 which is still not bad.
