Site Status Report

Well we have come to the end of a record setting week here at From the Front Row. I haven't posted that much, but that hasn't stopped the annual Oscar upswing. Monday set a site record for most hits in a single day, and this week 2009 surpassed the hit count for the entire calendar year of 2007 (about a month faster than 2008 did). So 2009 is shaping up to be another banner year for From the Front Row.

Starting in two weeks, I will begin my coverage of the SXSW Film Festival, marking the first major film festival I have covered here. School obligations will keep me from attending in person, but many filmmakers and publicists have been kind enough to send me screener copies of their films, so I will be very busy in the next couple of weeks leading up to the festival. I guess it's a good thing that the week prior to the festival is Spring Break.

In other news, I have been asked to contribute to the website In Review Online. My first review, Serbis, will be up in a couple of weeks, followed by Everlasting Moments and Tokyo Sonata. There are some talented writers over there so check them out.

Also, if you haven't signed up to follow my Twitter feed yet, what are you waiting for? It's another one of the newest additions to From the Front Row to connect me with readers and fellow movie buffs.

2009 is shaping up to be another great year here at From the Front Row. I hope you'll join me for the ride, and thanks as always to those of you who keep coming back.
