The panel discussion at Mail & Female in Amsterdam was a really positive and stimulating event. Attended by an intimate audience, including independent erotic filmmaker Jennifer Lyon Bell of Blue Artichoke Films and Dutch golden age filmmaker Willem van Batenburg, the discussion was video recorded for Mail & Female's MFE.tv from where you'll be able to watch it once it's edited and up. I'll also share it here together with photos that were taken at the event.

The official launch party at the film festival in Berlin at Cinema Moviemento was definitely a highlight. In short, I was really pleased with it all, including the great turnout of people (who in fact had to pay to come hear me read from my book and still packed the place), the audience's reception of my reading and presentation, and the thoughtful discussion afterwards. It was really lovely to have several of the filmmakers I present in my book present at my party, including Jennifer Lyon Bell, Ingrid Ryberg, and last but not least Erika Lust whom I've known since we met in Oslo back in 2006. She and her husband and I got to catch up after the launch party over cocktails at Soho House where they were staying.
