MERCURY PREMIERE AND SCREENING

We are so thrilled that Mercury has been selected to premier at Encounters Film Festival, UK’s Clermont Ferrand! What a great way to start the film’s festival trajectory.

With its premiere now announced, and with our DCP finally in hand it was also one of our priorities to organise a cast and crew screening this summer, but I had never imagined we’d manage the wonderful swanky theatre at Soho House.

It was luck would have it, that fellow filmmaker friends Paul Frankl and Maria Tanjala of Film Chain and Big Couch would be organising their cast and crew screening of Goldstar this summer too. The films had so much in common: Two powerful accounts with unconventional and thought-provoking takes on young women with unwanted pregnancies.

It was a great turnout - although two big absences due to availability! Isabella and Lily!

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…
