Civilisation includes... festivals. If you want to see any of these films, you plan months in advance. You become member of the institute so that you can make early bookings. Or you cancel all plans and sit in front of computer the entire day public booking opens to make a few reservations. And then you find that you have busted your years' savings on a handful of these flicks.

Non-civilisation also includes film festivals. You buy a delegate pass for less than a cost of a ticket at what they call a multiplex. Then you just turn up for every single show for the entire week. You may have to turn up a few minutes before time to get a seat. Otherwise, you can sit on the gallery steps. You may get groped in non-civilisation festivals though. But that is another story.

Fresh air. Clean roads. A run in the park. 15 degrees. Spotless bathroom. Hot shower. Autumn sunshine.

Since when did one's standards become so low? Oh wait. Never mind.
