Red State Premier

What a busy day today kicking off with Producer's lunch and speakers, then off to Universal party, Skywalker party, Red State screening, Britdoc party.... Met so many cool people today.

Ohna at Producers Talk Jay & Lars @ Producers Talk

Tonight's screening of red State was quite an event! Queues were unbelievable (but then again everything at Sundance seems to have great big long cattle queues). Kevin Smith created quite a stir, offending studios, sales & distributors but going out there to get his film to screens & audiences himself. He said "How can you do all this work, make this film & get it to Sundance for $4,000,000 & then justify selling it to someone who will then spend $20,000,000 just to get it out to the audiences". Good luck Kevin, go for it!

Queue to Red State Kevin Smith

Nice to end the evening in the bitter cold (must be at least -10 tonight!!) outside the Yarrow chatting to the press about all the screenings (including Jenni Miller a fellow Sarah Lawrence graduate!)

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…
