Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 08.31.42The festival schedule has now been finalised for Glasgow’s Document International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. There’s a slew of very interesting looking films programmed for the festival this year and I am please to be included in this line up. My film screens at 3:45pm on Friday the 10th. If you are in Glasgow that weekend do check out this festival and see if you can make to my screening. Hopefully I will see you there!

Full festival schedule here.

Viva Chile Mierda has also been highlighted on the festival’s website and given a “Programmer’s Pick”

CINEMEMOIRE_AFFICHE_FINAL

The programme for Geneva’s 2014 Latin American film series, Cinémémoire has been finalised. Screening in Geneva’s Cinelux theatre, this year’s programme focuses on Chile and I am very excited to be included in this list of seminal films and to be programmed alongside films like La Spirale by Armand Mattelart, Chile Obstinate Memory by Patricio Guzman (one of my favorite films!) and Machuca by Andrés Wood. (Fun fact: my cousins Ian and Paul went to the school that was the subject of the film Machuca and they knew the boys that the film is about.) The films will screen at the Cinélux cinema on Boulevard de Sant-George. My film will screen on September 18th and October 5th. I will be there in person for the September 18th screening. I hope to see some of you there!

I have just received the pleasing news that my film has been selected for Glasgow’s Document International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival!

The festival takes place October 9 – 12 so mark your calendar Glasgow people. I expect all of the Glaswegians I know to go to this (you know who you are) and to tell your friends. I think I’ll be going so I’ll know if your not there. Also, let’s drink. 🙂

More details soon…

cinelux

Over two months, as part of Cine Memoria, a Latin American film series organised by Kiltrofilms, Cinelux in Geneva will screen ¡Viva Chile mierda! on two separate nights (September 18th and October 5th). I know a few people in Geneva (you know who you are) so hopefully they will be able to go to this screening but if you’re reading this and are in any way near this cinema then you should definitely go too. 🙂 Oh, and tell your friends.

trophies

All good things must come to an end. FIDOCS has officially concluded and although I did not walk away with one of the trophies, I did walk away with some great memories. I am immensely proud to have been selected for the National Competition and I congratulate all the worthy winners. The reception to my film at both screenings was everything I could have hoped for with many people coming up to me afterwards to thank me for making the film and discussing with me their own stories of that difficult time. There was not a dry eye in the house after each screening. What more could I ask for really? I wish to whole-heartedly thank the festival programmers for including me and for being such a warm hosts to me while I was in Santiago. I hope to be able to maintain these relationships in the years to come. I saw some truly inspiring films this last week and made what I hope to be some lasting friendships. I even got to spend time with one of my heroes, Patricio Guzman. #winning!

It looks like a great program. I am very excited to see all of these films next week. Hopefully I will see some of you there!

I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to screen ¡Viva Chile mierda! at Queens University Belfast this Autumn. The film will screen at 4pm on October 15, 2014 and will be followed by a Q&A. I am grateful to Cahal McLaughlin, professor in Film Studies and the School of Creative Arts for the invitation. I look forward to meeting their students and hearing what they have to say about the issues raised in my film. I have never been to Ireland before so that is a bonus as is the beautiful architecture of the university.

I will post more information once I have it…
