Re: FVM Editor

I don't have any official info, but I understand that after Garth finishes in April there will be an interim arrangement with more than one person involved - presumably sharing some of the work he does.

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

Very late response to a comment from Michael Slowe in this thread.
Withoutabox will be operational through the next festival season, but be disabled on September 16, 2019.

The surviving service on similar lines is FilmFreeway.

Re: "Will 'Ye Go to Flanders" screened to commemorate the end of WWI

It is right and fitting, that your film should be shown - especially this year. I am sure, that all of those 200 people were moved. The screening tomorrow will doubtless also go well.

And thanks for the great news that this year's BIAFF will have a Willy entry!

Re: Paul Kittel Documentary Sunday 28th October 2018

I can only say "here! here!" to the comments on Paul. I was not at the AGM event but have had the pleasure of meeting him on other occasions. The second film of his I ever saw was a tribute to his father called "AN AMATEUR AUTEUR". The first was an animation, whose title I cannot recall, which featu...

Re: Public liability insurance

Phew!

Thanks for the update and the tip, Peter. Let us hope that none of us has to call on such insurance.

Re: Translation software

While google translate covers an amazing number of languages, it is much better at formal business and legal language than informal language. (It draws heavily on the paperwork of the EU, where teams of human translators are required to make sure that every document means the same thing in all EU to...

Re: Freddy Beard FACI

Freddy's death was a shock. She was, among all the things you mention, also a regular UNICA visitor. She could not come this year, but was being positive about coming to UNICA in 2019. She was always a positive presence and ever-willing to help in any way. Jan and I send our sympathy to her family a...

Re: BIAFF 2018 AT HARROGATE

I met Martin and Keri as they signed in ... I knew his name from proof-reading the web pages about the results and the festival timetable. You are absolutely right about THE POLE LINER, whose dry humour tickled me greatly. I am delighted to say he has kindly agreed to trim NUISANCE down to one minut...
