bfi-london-film-festival-artwork-2013-590x332Waterbaby premiered at the BFI London Film Festival on Weds 26th Oct, 2011. It played as part of the ‘Do The Right Thing’ programme. This was the second year running to have a film at LFF, after Remnants premiered there last year – it was great to be back again with a new and very different film. A short review of Waterbaby can be found here.


My NFTS graduation film For Megan will screen at the Encounters International Film Festival in an event called ‘The Programmer’s Fear of Missing the Masterpiece’ where I have been invited to discuss my experiences of filmmaking and festivals with programmer Mark Cosgrove.
