This was my fifth Beaufort International Film Festival (the 7th overall) and like the previous iterations, the 2013 edition once again raises the bar. We tend to use this phrase a lot with BIFF, thanks mostly to the excellent (and grueling) work done behind the scenes by festival runners Ron and Rebecca Tucker and their legion of Beaufort Film Society volunteers. Once again the USCB Center for the Arts was transformed into an intimate cinematic shrine where audience and filmmakers mingled and mixed, shared feedback as well as an abundance of laughter and tears.

Readers may remember Scott as a finalist from season eight of American Idol, where he sang and played the piano like a virtuoso. Besides being an accomplished musician, Scott is an author and a motivational speaker who travels the world inspiring people with his talent, his deep faith, and his adventurous spirit. Scott MacIntyre also happens to be blind.

My daughter has reached that delightful age when American girls begin to obsess – and obsess and obsess and obsess – over clothes, shoes, makeup, hair, accessories, home décor… the whole girly shebang. For many girls, it’s the beginning of a journey that never ends. (Perhaps “journey” is too dignified a term; “trivial pursuit,” maybe?)
