Festival & film news

This summer the Fresh Film Festival in Prague put on a retrospective of Daniel's films, you can read more about it here. I made two little appearances this autumn, one to Camden School For Girls sixth form assembly, where I showed BABY to 450 sixth formers. That was a most amazing experience, so different from any industry screening - it was great! Daniel Kaluuya was meant to present the film, but he was busy shooting the sequel to Johnny English, so they had to make do with me instead. I was also invited as guest filmmaker to show Son at ShortCutz at the Proud Gallery in Camden. you see me here.

We have now started sending Baby out to festivals and already it has been selected at the Corona Cork International Film Festival and will be playing there as part of their shorts selection. The festival looks amazing with a great programme of films and a slow food evening too. Dad will be showing at Brest next week, as they are putting together a special celebration of UK Films this year - again with a fantastic looking programme of shorts to see.

And the latest good news for Baby is that we got nominated for a BIFA award!!! You can read all about it & see the glamorous photos on the BIFA website....

BIFA Crocodile and Baby

BIFA has had a great idea in this period of Coronavirus lockdown - they have made all the BIFA nominated and winner shorts over the past 10 years available to view for FREE. How lovely to see BABY and CROCODILE up there and among such an exciting batch of films - great to be able to watch them all.

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
