BAFTA

Diego Maradona, Review: Feet of gold, hand of God

Diego Maradona, Review: Feet of gold, hand of God Amy got him the Academy Award. Senna got him the BAFTA. And now, Diego Maradona has raked in £ 2.2 mn, since its release in June, which is a welcome collection for any docu-feature. Asif Kapadia has now won three matches in a row. And by convincing margins, at that. By definition, a documentary appeals to niche audiences only. Though football is the most popular team sport in the world, it is not the numero uno sport in India, unlike Ar...

Carmarthen Bay Film Festival(BAFTA Cymru/Wales Qualifying Festival)

Carmarthen Bay Film Festival is set in the heartland of Welsh film and television. The festival is held in the home town of Wales' very first Hollywood silent film star Gareth Hughes who was Kelvin Guy's, the festivals CEO and founder cousin. The Carmarthen Bay Film Festival is all about encouraging and supporting independent film and cinema here in Wales the UK and Internationally. Our 3rd festival was a huge successes with over 140 films entered. The festival was once again held over 4 days at the 4 star Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli, Wales. The festival was once again a big hit with the attending film makers who had traveled from LA Miami, Europe and from all over the UK. The festivals audience was also very impressed with the diversity and quality of this year’s films with attendance rising from last years by over 100%. This festival is all about being open and fair with an independent judging panel made up of professional well respected film and television writers and critics. The festival is not about making vast amounts of money off the backs of film makers, but giving them the opportunity to have their films screened and judge fairly. We operate as a not for profit community group. Which basically means all money from submissions and sponsorship goes towards making the festival bigger and better year on year. For this festival to grow we do need the help of you the film maker to make and enter your film into our 2015 festival. It's all about fairness, our is motto ‘This festival is honest’ the festival is and will always be, a champion of independent film!

The BUFF Blog (April 2011)

user
For many people, British urban cinema came into its’ own with the premiere of ‘Adulthood’ on June the 20th 2009. 2 years on, the genre has now spawned its’ first spoof with the cheekily titled Anuvahood. It was at the Adulthood premiere when BUFF first caught up with messyrs Aml Ameen & Kamara Bacchus. It wasn’t your standard red carpet interview. Such is the beauty of the English language that a word can mean so many things to so many people – let’s just say the word BUFF wa...

The King, The Swan And The BAFTAS

user
  BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced its "longlists", a rather quaint annual exercise that reduces the number of potential candidates for BAFTA Awards to 15. At the moment, in one of the key races of the awards season, the historical epic THE KING'S SPEECH and the ballet-goes-mad BLACK SWAN are tied for most mentions (to be translated in a few weeks time to most nominations). Not far behind are the films INCEPTION an...

Interview with Clive Owen at the BFI London Film Festival 22nd October 2009

user
It's the BFI London Film Festival and I'm at the BFI Southbank to meet Clive Owen. We can all just google Clive Owen to read about his achievements as a BAFTA, Golden Globe winner and for his extensive work in the film and tv industry. Therefore I thought I should pick out some goodies from the interview, that you don't read about everywhere else... Born 1964 in Coventry, Clive Owen was a man who didn't have it all set in his early life. With a father who left the family when Owen was thr...

Other Brits who shined include Best...
