Re: Are we ready for an "Upright Film Contest"?

There was a film in BIAFF 2018 that had been shot in the portrait format. From memory I think it was called "Girl" and was awarded 4 stars.

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

At XDL Films our main entry for BIAFF, "Whodundidit", has been awarded 4 stars with which we are very pleased and we are also delighted that it is being shown on the Saturday. Our other film was a one minute story called "The Anniversary" that only received two stars, primarily due to some technical...

Re: Paul Kittel Documentary Sunday 28th October 2018

I would like to echo Tim's comments about Paul Kittel. I found his presentation at the AGM weekend to be both interesting and inspiring and I returned home feeling sufficiently encouraged to get back to making some personal films again, after a year or so in the doldrums. I watched Paul's programme ...

Re: Film Music

I've seen that series on the history of music for Cinema Tim and I agree that it is excellent. I'd already spotted Mark Kermode's new series so that is definitely on my "must watch" list

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Tim's comment about there being more of a buzz at this year's BIAFF is interesting and I'd noticed this myself. I've been attending the festival since 1983 and looking back I think that one thing that helps to enhance the lively atmosphere is a good lounge area where we can all congregate for our te...

Re: BIAFF 2018 AT HARROGATE

Here's a funny thing. As you know I was one of the Saturday Projectionists so I had already seen all the films I was showing when I checked to make sure that everything was working ok. The funny thing was that I actually found myself enjoying the films better on the day. Maybe something to do with t...

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Re the get together at the bar. I'm projecting on the Saturday so will need to keep a clear head but suspect I'll be in need of something restorative afterwards! You will probably find me lying in a darkened room, somewhere very quiet. As to the results, I didn't enter a personal film this year but ...
