Silver Dragon Award at Krakow

Krakow IFF logo Last night we won a silver dragon award at the Krakow International Film Festival for Baby. We were really excited to get the news as this festival means a lot to us, Daniel having been awarded the UIP award there in the past for Dad and being nominated for a European Academy Award. Thankfully Laura was able to jump on a plane to be there for the ceremony, deliver Daniel's message of thanks and to collect the award (which she was then able to convince security to let her back on the plane with to take home).

So far in total Baby has got into 37 International Film Festivals, been nominated 12 times and has won 8 awards.

Line up for June onwards is still amazing:

31 May - 5 June, CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival, Canada
2 - 12 June, Mediawave IF and Music Festival, Szombathely, Hungary

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…
