Fact #1 – 90% of white people have taken a film class at some point in their life.
Fact #2 – White people like feeling smart without doing work – 2 hours in a theater is easier than 10 hours with book.
Fact #3 – If white people aren’t going back packing, they generally like to travel with a specific purpose.
Fact #4 – 75% of white people believe they either have the potential to or will become filmmakers/screenwriters/directors at some point.
Fact #5 – White people hate stuff that is ‘mainstream’ – so they go to film festivals where they see movies that every other person in their demographic wants to see. It’s a pretty sweet way to rebel.
Fact #6 – It is required by white person law, that you publicly declare that foreign cinema is better than Hollywood Cinema, and on par with Indie Film.
Fact #7 – White people earn credibility by being into film from strange countries – “oh you liked Batman? Yeah, I didn’t see it, I’m really into Serbian film now. They had a great retrospective at the Vancouver Festival.”
