Interested in Seeing Jamie Bamber on the Big Screen or in Person?
If you live in Florida or Italy, consider yourself VERY lucky.

The France Cinema Florida Film Festival has announced their lineup and it includes Un jour mon père viendra (Someday My Dad Will Come). The festival runs November 4th through 6th in Miami and tickets are now on sale. UJMPV is scheduled to premiere Sunday, November 6th at 6:10pm. Any applicants for our newly created Miami film review position please leave a comment. ;)

However, Jamie will not be in attendance at the screening since it was announced last night he is scheduled to appear at Galacticon Five in Italy the same weekend. Additional details can be found HERE regarding Jamie's appearance, but since I have very little idea of what it says, I'm looking for a good translator. :)

If you wish to monitor news about the convention, two Twitter accounts to check out are @galacticon and @BSGIC, the official feed for the Battlestar Galactica Italian Club, which seems to be behind the convention.

For those of us lamenting not being able to attend either event, we can console ourselves, a little, with Law & Order: UK on BBC America tonight.

Heh heh. Nice try, hon. I'm still going to be fiercely annoyed. ;)

Seriously, tho, one of the organizers of Galacticon has already promised to provide us with LOTS of photos, so, yeah... he's awesome. *thumbs-up* And as far as the film goes, I'm still crossing all my available appendages that it'll screen at next year's COLCOA in L.A. I mean, it's not like we're not going to find some way to see it eventually. ;) But I'd really love to see it in a cinema like it was intended to be seen, and the chances of that happening over here are still iffy.

Yay for Jamie finally in my Country! (Italy)... I HAVE to go to Galacticon... if I won't be able to go, I'll freak out LOL
I'm not so good with English, but I can try to translate that page with simple words. It says:

"We're glad to annunce that Jamie Bamber (Captain Lee Apollo Adama) will be at the 5th Battlestar Galactica Italian Club Convention.
Jamie will join us for photos and signatures and to chat with his fans during the panels. We remind you that:
- The Convention is open to max 350 people on each day
- The "gala dinner" on Saturday, that you can book, is open for max 50 people.
- If you book before October 25 you will have a "welcome envelope". After that day will be possible to attend the convention going directly to reception. For more information, go to GALACTICON FIVE website (http://battlestargalactica.it/galacticon/)
Are you still reading! Don't wait, go and buy your pass!"

There better be pics or videos though.

I may have taken the liberty of pointing out to the very nice Italian organizer fella that no one has ever posted a clip of Jamie speaking Italian. So, like, they'd have an EXCLUSIVE of that shit. Juuust sayin'.

(ohpleaseohplease)

If I will be able to go (and I MUST go) and there is the chance to ask question, I'll sure ask him "Jamie, can you say something in italian, please?" LOL... I would love to hear him speaking in my language!
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: September 14th, 2011 08:34 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I'm thinking you may not even have to ask! In all the video footage from the Jules Verne Festival panel and the press interviews, Jamie spoke in French nearly the entire time (that one clip where the audience responds by screaming their heads off is pure gold, heh), and he did it all on his own. Bet he may bust out the Italian straight out of the gate, just to be courteous when he's in your country.

(The question is will there be anyone recording? *taps fingers* ;) )
ioio10 From: ioio10 Date: September 14th, 2011 08:40 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
You're right, I remember those vids! I think he knows better French than Italian but well, I'm sure he will say something :)

If I will be able to go (I can't believe it yet! But well, if nothing bad happens, I'll be there!), I will sure make a lot of pics and videos! Not the whole thing because my camera isn't new, but I'll definitely try to do the best! (and I'm sure there will be a lot of people like me of the Italian Club that will record :) )

Danke, m'dear. :D

well, he seems like that kind of person (polite and considerate and all) so i think that he will at least try.

about the recording... let's hope that somebody will not only record but also share. maybe more than just one person *still hoping to be able to be one of those persons*
anamarya From: anamarya Date: September 14th, 2011 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
ok, now you did it. i'll not be able to concentrate for at least a couple of days because i'll try to find a way of getting a couple of days of in order to get there. In Italy i mean.

on a side note i think that this will be probably our best chance of hearing Jamie speak in italian.

Jamie! Why do you crush my heart so??? *cries*

Any ideas why he doesn't do American Cons anymore? *epic sadness*
asta77 From: asta77 Date: September 14th, 2011 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Creation, which is practically in his backyard, no longer does BSG cons and D*C has conflicted with his filming schedules the past several years. I know there are other cons, such as Shore Leave, but it seems to be an availability issue rather than him not wanting to do a con here. Actually, I think it's been about two years since he's done a con anywhere.

Yeah, wasn't it actually the French movie that he had to drop out of the last D*C for? I mean, it sucks for peeps, and I'd be upset too but hey... a job is a job. (And that was kind of a cool job.)

It's probably also worth pointing out that not all cons are like D*C where it makes more sense to put in an appearance when you don't have something to actively promote. Something like Comic-Con or NYCC, there tends to be a lot more panels and events tied to upcoming shows and films, and he's been busy with L&O:UK which... isn't that audience. ;) (Also, obviously, he probs would have been at Comic-Con this year if 17P had been picked up. Le sigh.)

Wow...Jamie and Italy... so tempting.
anamarya From: anamarya Date: September 14th, 2011 06:51 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I know... I actually looked up plane tickets. But i'm probably just dreaming.
callmeonetrack From: callmeonetrack Date: September 14th, 2011 06:55 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Me too. I was just looking at AlItalia's rates but their ridiculous for Boston to Italy.

I saw the Italian club organizer tweeting Katee online too. If he got them both! OMG! I would have to find some way to get there. Lol.

OMG Jamie AND Katee in ITALY!! I would have to go. *g*

Oh Bamber! He's going to be the reason I see the world because if I ever want to see him in person I'll have to go overseas to a con. This is definitely NOT a bad thing at all!

Can't wait to see if we get some vids of him speaking Italian! *swoon*

It's a bummer on the timing because I have to be in London on November 15th but there's two weeks in between and I could never go to Europe for that long. :(

Where in Italy anyways?

Miami

Any applicants for our newly created Miami film review position please leave a comment. ;)

I'm throwing my hat in! And if anyone else is in the South Florida area and wants to make a gang of it, let me know. If I can get any images of the promotional material, I'll post that along with a summary.

OMG! I can't wait!
