Joaquin Phoenix Discovers 'Real Appreciation' for Film Festivals at Berlin Film Fest 2018!

Joaquin Phoenix keeps close to writer-director Gus Van Sant while attending the photo call for their film Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot held during the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 20) in Berlin, Germany.

During their press conference, the 43-year-old actor revealed that he discovered another side to film festivals after watching Gus give a talk to young filmmakers as part of the Berlin Talents scheme.

“Typically when I go to film festivals, I just show up and do press and that’s it,” Joaquin admitted (via Deadline). “So I usually hate film festivals. Last night, Gus was doing the Berlin Talents and I went along to watch and saw all these young filmmakers that are curious about the process and hearing Gus speak, I had a real appreciation for a film festival. It’s odd that I’m so old and that it’s the first time I really experienced a film festival for what it is for people so I was grateful for that experience.”

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot also stars Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black – Watch the teaser trailer below!
