      Great!

      Gantz vs. Zu on the 9th is a pretty painful choice, but with so many great movies in two fantastic festivals, such things are unavoidable.

      Looks like Benny Chan can’t make it after all?

      You might want to update the guest info on the lineup/guest announce post, especially as that’s the “official” reference at the moment
