It starts today. Well, technically yesterday.
I think anyone who knows me or who has been irritated by me constantly going on about it knows. The London Film Festival starts today! This year I have had to try and hold back how many screenings I go to, by going to one less than last year. Limited to evenings and weekends, I've crammed in 10 films in my schedule starting with tomorrow night.
I have written a 'Top Picks' for the festival over on Vulturehound, which you can check HERE. In fact VH has a host of writers so no doubt they will be covering the festival more than I can. Some of posts will over there but I will link back to my blog. I included some films I didn't get tickets for, reasons being for ticket pricing or for timings.
I got to take my ticket fan out picture as I know have all the tickets in my possession.
Very excited to see all these film - just wish it was more, way more. I would happily spend two weeks just watching and writing about films.
So, my schedule is as follows, I am aiming to cover all, but there may be delays because, well, its LFF. The short snappy summaries do not do the films justice, just to let you know.
Pyromaniac - Norwegian thriller based on true events.
Ovarian Psycos - Documentary about a group of woman from East LA who rally others to fight against prejudices.
Fiore - Italian love story set in prison with a Romeo & Juilet feel.
Mindhorn - British comedy about a washed up actor who is called back to play a character he was once famous for.
I am Not a Serial Killer - Sundance hit about a teenager who tries to hold back his urges to kill while a serial killer roams his hometown.
Heal the Living - French film set in the world of organ transplants and the lives that are affected.
Your Name - Japanese animated story about two people miles apart who swap lives but live them parallel.
