Sheffield DocFest opens today and amazing streetart doc TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND is on in the Videotheque throughout the festival.
If you are a delegate, please pull up a chair and have a look at the inspiring story of how an Egyptian artist tried to turn a condemned London housing estate into a giant artwork.
The fascinating Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, one of the UK’s biggest cinema research collections, is in Exeter and this past weekend it hosted the Puny Gods Cinema event. This was a kind of mini festival, a one dayer with two film rooms, discussions, screenings (of course) and film maker talks. And cake.
We screened Taking Over the king’s Land to an appreciative audience, and saw some great films, including a stylish feature shot for only £1500 (their estimate).
