Long Distance Information Goes from strength to strength

I've been so busy it's hard to keep the news up to date, especially as far as LDI goes. People are calling out for it from all over the world now. We have had the immense pleasure of being invited to screen at Sundance and now immediately following on from that at Clermont Ferrand. There will be a special screening of LDI at Glasgow Film Festival, where the film is probably most at home - being home to both director (Douglas Hart) and lead actor (Peter Mullan) and I believe the rest of the cast too (Caroline Paterson & Alan Tripney). They will have a special retrospective screening of Doug's pop promos over the years as well as the film itself.

For the Christmas launch of his sold out vinyl Christmas single Atheist Christmas, written for LDI, Gruff Rhys will be doing a special gig at Rough Trade shops in London on the 19th of December. Don't miss it!

At some point I'll have to update the festival circuit list as it is quickly growing with many more about to come... But first off in the new year will be The London Short Film Festival and Doug is schedule to participate in a Q&A on the 13th of January. More details to follow.

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…
