Crocodile Stuff and festivals

Festival mish-mash

Crocodile continued to have a great year and Gaëlle and I did a bit more travelling to places like Clermont Ferrand, where we had a great time with Laurent Crouzeix and fellow filmmakers, Philip Ilson, Simon Young and Chris, the Encounters team and the guys from Nisi Masa... It's always amazing having a film there - seeing real audiences queue to see the films and listen to them argue and debate about the films afterwards. There was a man in the queue who was so excited to discover the team behind Crocodile and he was able to ask Gaëlle so many questions that were puzzling him. And of course lots more.. Girls on Film in Shoreditch (another one of Philip's Q&A led screenings), we were in Paris when we got the amazing news Crocodile won best short award at the uber-cool Cellu l'art film festival in Germany - what a shame Gaëlle couldn't make it over there! We were thrilled the film got into Minimalen in Norway, Ankara, Hoboken, Palm Springs along with Paul's Roxanne - again gutted not to be able to go... And we finally got to showcase the film in amongst its brother and sister BFI shorts at the ICA.

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…
