    "Hello Peter and the gang,  I have a question about film festivals. My wife and I love going to the movies together. I'd list our bonafides but you don't care about that stuff and it'd just be a thinly veiled list designed to culminate in the fact that we had an awesome wedding in an art house theater. Oh darn, look at that, it slipped in there.  Anyway, every year we try to take a vacation, last year it was Disney, this year was Ireland but I've had an idea to try to go to one of the bigger cooler film festivals. The problem with that though is that I really know nothing about them. I see a lot of headlines and early reviews coming out of things like Sundance and TIFF and South By but I really have no clue on how one goes about getting tickets to such a thing or if you have to be a working media member or anything. So I'm looking for your opinions on the best festivals that we could go to as just fans of films. We aren't looking to necessarily see the next Un Chien Andalou so nothing too crazy artsy.   Now one small caveat to this is that my wife is a teacher so our only real window to go to one of these festivals is in the summer. Also, we live in Philly so if there's anything that doesn't require a cross-country flight that'd be great too. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.   I love the podcast and the website, thanks so much for the hours of entertainment and information."
