On Tuesday the 22nd of March at 18:00, Viva Chile Mierda! will screen at the Art Kino Cinema in Rijeka, Croatia. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with me, the director.
I am very happy to return to Croatia to screen my film as it is a beautiful country with amazing scenery and food. I am also pleased to be screening at Art Kino again as I have always had very interesting conversations with audiences there. They don’t ask easy questions! If you happen to be in Croatia next week please do come to the screening.

Well this is a nice piece of news to end the year with; Viva Chile Mierda has been included in this list of 10 best Chilean films of the year according to Twitch! I haven’t seen all these films but the ones I have seen were great so I am very pleased to have been included in this list, especially since many of the other films had actual theatrical releases in Chile. My film only played at FIDOCS and at the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago so I am amazed that it was even on their radar let alone memorable enough to be included in their end of year round up. 2014 has been a pretty good year for me. Here’s hoping 2015 is even better. Happy New Year everyone!

On Wednseday I will be in Northern Ireland to present ¡Viva Chile Mierda! at the School of Creative Arts in Queens University Belfast. I am very pleased to have been invited by Professor Cahal McLaughlin to screen screen and discuss my work to their students. I have never been to Belfast before so I am greatly looking forward to this trip. This event series is open to the general public and is free so if you are Belfast you are more than welcome to attend even if you are not a student. Hopefully I will see some of you there.
Over the next week ¡Viva Chile mierda! will screen at various venues in Madrid and Barcelona as part of the El Ojo Cojo International Film Festival. I am particularly excited that the film will be playing in a cinema near my aunt Gaby and that she and my cousins will be able to watch the film on the big screen. If you find yourself in Spain this week, do go and check out my film at one of the venues below:

I have just received these photos of the screening at the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago, Chile on Sept 16th. The photos were taken by Jose Manuel Rodriguez who is Head of the Audiovisual Archives of the Museum, and an all around lovely human being. It seems the screening was very well attended and that people said nice things about the film to my parents who were there in my stead. I wish I could have been there but I’m very pleased that my parents got to watch the film on the big screen with such a receptive audience.
Viva Chile Mierda is now available to the public in the museum’s audiovisual centre CEDAV so if you are in the vicinity do pop into the museum and have a look.
I am pleased to announce that my film has been selected for this year’s CINECITY Film Festival in Brighton, where I live. The festival takes place in the city’s historic Duke of York’s Picture House as well as other venues around downtown Brighton.
I have only just received the acceptance email and so I don’t have much more info as of yet. More to follow. Watch this space.
