|THE EVENT OF 13TH JANUARY 2011|
Well, the event on Thursday 13th January was quite a hit.
It was a combined event with the London Short Film Festival and we had around forty-five visitors - our highest attendance yet. It was absolutely heaving. People started arriving an hour early, so that by the time we kicked off at around 7.15 there was scarcely room to move.
Denise Hicks from the London Short Film Festival gave a short introduction, followed by Martina Constantinescu of Curious Quests, who gave a short presentation about the SlickFlick platform for mobile phones. SlickFlick has a competition for filmmakers and storytellers. For full details, please see below. Tom Lowe was our resident projectionist and front of house duties were managed by Parissima Darabhiha and Gwendolen von Einsiedel, our marvellous LSFF volunteers. Thanks to all of them and of course to Phil and Chloe of LSFF for organising the tie-in and to Darren Moore, our friendly publican.
Thanks very much also to audience member Josh Solomon who not only brought a group of his students with him but also stepped in to help when we had projector problems. He also pointed out that we were the only free evening film event in London that night.
THE FILM PROGRAMME
As always we had a great mixture of work, from comedy to experimental and lyrical. All the filmmakers present introduced their work so we got to understand the context. We even got a short talk by Una Marzorati about her work in progress "Daugarpils", which even featured illustrations, designs and an animatic. I am really keen to encourage the screening of work in progress, so please feel free to bring such work along.
We had contributions from prolific filmmakers and LAC regulars Stuart Pound and Kate Jessop; Kate had also showed her film "Girl's Guide to Muso Boyfriends", which we showed at LAC in November, at an LSFF screening earlier in the festival. Milo Waterfield, whom I had met at the 4mations event earlier in the day, dropped in and screened his excellent "Lobster Club", one of the 4mations-funded films. We then closed with a number of Bob Godfrey films, courtesy of Tom Lowe.
Here is the screening programme with appropriate links where possible.
