Film Distribution... a new paradigm and manifesto. It's time for change. | NWNW News | Scoop.it

My one disagreement with Chris' article is about the local/regional audience - these are your biggest fans when it comes to fiction films, and it's they who are the most interested in screenings, Q&As and so on. Outside of London there are very, very few independent cinemas that are in a position to host screenings - but Pleased Sheep Films got an audience of 600 at King Georges Hall, Blackburn, for the premiere of "Tash Force" on 19 April 2012 (a Thursday).  Comment by JW

Colin Warhurst: Manchester Film Festival 2012 Write-Up

Colin Warhurst: Manchester Film Festival 2012 Write-Up | NWNW News | Scoop.it

Many thanks and Congratulations again to Andrew Oldbury and his team for putting on the first (of many?) Manchester Film Festivals last weekend. I was gutted as I had been snowed under with corporate work ad deadlines, meaning that I missed much of the festival. Something I hope to avoid when it comes for the 2013 MFF!

Filmonik "Do well with nothing, do even better with a little, and do it now!": Filmonik Kabaret 2012 | NWNW News | Scoop.it

Presenting…

FILMONIK KABARET 2012

April 2nd – April 8th

A whole week of flat out, peddle-to-the-metal 24/7 filmmaking, where fortune favours the brave, the quick-witted and the fast-working, where only the strong survive and the crazy obsessives flourish. If you’ve always dreamed of making “that little movie”, if only you had the time / talent / equipment, now is your chance to watch that dream crash and burn, and see something else come stumbling from the ashes.
