Re: Clubmate Douglas Boswell toHollywood?

Now you can see Dougie's film "Labyrinthus" in Japan. Of course subtitled in Japanese. I have seen it on his facebook. I wonder if the Japanese trailer could be shown here on this website. It's strange in Japanese. It's heart-warming that my former club member has not forgotten his roots... BIAFF (d...

Re: BIAFF - the Festival

Of course, I also had a chat with Bob Lorrimor. Again he received a diamond award. He said that he was surprised about this result, but I find it one of his best. Some weeks ago I showed his "Drill" at the première of my own film "Master of Time" in our village hall. You could hear the audience whil...

Re: BIAFF - the Festival

I was very happy that I could attend BIAFF without a moonface again. I think it was the 14th time. Buxton, Chesterfield, Harrogate, Bedford, Weymouth, Norwich, Royal Tunbridge Wells... Sittingbourne was one of the best. Nobody complained about the hotel. It was modern, clean and comfortable. Excelle...

Re: Pay Per View

Yes, you're right, Tim. I can watch films on my TV screen as well which is already much better than on a computer screen. I must tell you that my wife and I live a bit seperated. We are not divorced you know. On the contrary! But most of the time Vera watches TV and I watch my computer screen. Tonig...

Re: Pay Per View

Please, do not kill me. I do not like films on my laptop or on my computer. Ok, it's fantastic that we can watch films on the IAC-website. That's unique! But I still prefer to see films on a wide screen. In some weeks I will show some films in the village hall on a wide screen. I have invited my nei...

Re: BIAFF 2015 RESULTS

Yes, there are some surprises, Dave. I was surprised to see the name of Samuel Faict . He used to be a member of my club. I took him home several times after our club nights. We always had a nice chat in the car. Actually I encouraged him to join a film school (again). That's what he did. His films ...

Re: BIAFF 2015 entries

Patrick is disillusioned. Brian is diasappointed. And so are some other friends. I do understand. Some years ago I was surprised when I saw that "Guernsey, I Love You" got only three stars, because in my opinion it deserved three Daily Mail Trophies. I made that film together with Peter Rouillard an...

Re: BIAFF 2015 entries

My dear Forum-friends. I am very disappointed! I have decided not to attend BIAFF! I hate the IAC and all the judges! I am down. I feel very low... Of course I am joking. I have won the "Daily Mail Trophy" you know. One of my English friends has sent a birthday card to me. On it was a little picture...

Re: "Bakri" in a film by Gérard Depardieux!

Sorry for my spelling in previous message. The name is Gérard Depardieu. Actually in the first place he is a world famous actor. But he is also a film producer.
He is a Russian now who lives in Belgium. Maybe you know the reason. I think that Belgium is a paradise for certain people.

"Bakri" in a film by Gérard Depardieux!

Do you remember my actor Idrissa Mbengue in my film "Bakri" shown at BIAFF in Harrogate some years ago? He played the role of an asylum seeker. It was based on a true story. It really happened in my flat. Iddy was very proud. Afterwards I could read in his curriculum vitae on internet that I had ask...

Re: PAUL BAGSHAW R.I.P.

That is very sad news, Dave. I would like to express my sincere condolences at the loss of this great movie maker. I have some copies of his films thanks to my friend Geoff Harrison. Also "Blood Lake". It was Geoff who asked me to be the only judge at the Mersey Ten Competition at Preston about 6-7 ...

Re: BIAFF 2015 entries

Please, Pqtrick! You do not live in Villeurbanne anymore! Mais je comprend. La langue française est très mélodieuse. Ik spreek thuis Nederlands und ich habe Deutsch in der Schule gelernt, but I love English. See you in Sittingbourne.

Re: ONE MINUTE MOVIES

Many thanks, Dave. Mind, this one minute movie was not made by me. The chairman of my club has sent it to all his members. He finds it a good one. I don't know the name of the maker. The title is "De griep" ("The Flu"). It is a good one, but it is not the best movie in the world, I think. Thanks to ...

Re: Je suis Charlie

The permissibility of depictions of Muhammed in Islam has been a contentious issue, Wikipedia says. Oral and written descriptions are readily accepted by all traditions of Islam, but there is a disagreement about visual descriptions. Therefore I have my doubts about the front page of Charlie Hebdo. ...
