The good, the bad and the ugly

user
Day 2 of DIFF was a day of extremes. It was wonderful to see all the film fans studying their guides - some of the guides visibly well-read. I watched three films today and they are very diverse. Chicken with plums (Poulet aux prunes) premiered at Venice. It is a beautiful love story of a musician, played by Mathieu Amalric of The Diving Belle and the butterfly fame, who can't get over the loss of his violin and he decides to rather die. It sounds like a depressing film but it is in...

Beloved

user
Director: Daniel Zinkant.
Dan is young and dreams of love. In this beautifully made short on gay love we are let into his world, experiencing the beauty he sees and so desires. Flicking between two worlds of fantasy and real-life, we feel his pain of unrequited love. As the narrative comes to an end we watch the three friends disperse, and Dave is left alone- his love unknown, unsaid and only known by him and us. Beloved was made through our First Light Studio Award. A group of 15-19 year-olds worked together to produce the film which was written by a young person.

Poles Apart Again

user
Probably the most successful of the still-sustained 'national' film festivals that flourish, with greater and lesser degrees of success in London and around the British Isles (dare I still call them that without fear of political uncorrectness?) is Kinoteka, which celebrated its 9th edition from 24th March to 13th April, 2011.(Since the German Film Weeks are now but a fond memory, this Polish filmic-extravaganza now surely takes the crown, in the face of all kinds of film 'festivals' that vie...

The Man with the Golden Flute

user
It has become something of a truism that the biggest stars -in whatever field- are the nicest, most easy-going people to meet.The dozens of film legends I have had the privilege and pleasure of meeting, professionally or socially,have all displayed a generosity of spirit, and a curiosity, that seemed to be commensurate with their commitment to their craft, and passion for the art of cinema, as well as its industry, whether their careers were spent before or behind the camera, or -as seems inc...

Buff Blogcast - April 2010

British urban film is a new genre and everyone’s excited by what’s happening in urban music. It’s been a great year and there’s that same sense of excitement in film – it’s our time.

Media Coverage On YFIFF 2009 and The Knackery

Great write up from Andrew Johnston at the Belfast Newsletter who also quotes The Knackery with - "The Knackery is a giant, zombified lurch forward from Battle Of The Bone. Clarke's film is gonzoid entertainment at its most bloody and bizarre!"
