Street art documentary TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND will screen at Portobello Film Festival. This is the first official screening in London.
Portobello Film Festival runs from 28 August to 14 September – full programme with screening dates will be published very soon.
TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND has also been accepted in to the International Film Festival of Fine Arts in Szolnok, Hungary (15-19 October 2014).
It was great to take part in Sheffield Doc/Fest. The festival, which is the UK’s biggest documentary-only film festival, gets about 2,000 submissions. Of that, they screen about 150 films (but that includes interactive films, shorts and older films) and host 100 others in the Videotheque, then online for a 3 month period. So we are pretty pleased to be in that little pile!
So far we have got some great tweets and emails about TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND so here’s hoping it keeps getting out there and finds that audience we made it for!

The Guardian has followed up yesterday’s news about the increased number of people having Plastic Surgery for physical enhancement.
Every one of the subjects in Image Matters has to confront that question , and their responses are different … so, would YOU?
