    Woody Allen has made many movies. He is famous, but lately he us not so popular as he once was.

    Many rumours are circulating about him. They are not exactly flattering and some if them may very well be true.

      You mean allegedly? Wasn’t it some time ago he was accused and nothing came out of it? Of course he might very well be guilty, but neither of us have the full facts. But, yes, bad timing for this festival.

    Wish they could bring Annie Hall, Mahattan or his other great works back to the theatre.
    It can draw more attention to this festival.
