I’m delighted to announce that “Florian’s Last Climb” has been selected to screen at the 9th Pune Short Film Festival in India! With screenings in Europe, North and South America and now Asia, this leaves only Africa (and Antarctica…) as untapped continents in its modest run. The festival takes place in June in Pune, Maharashtra state, which is south east of Mumbai.

“Florian’s Last Climb” selected for the Beverly Hills Film Festival
Mar 2019 02

I am thrilled to announce that “Florian’s Last Climb” has been selected to screen at the Beverly Hills Film Festival in Los Angeles. The festival will run from the 3-6th April at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd, with the awards night gala taking place on the 7th at the Roosevelt Hotel. Not only does this mark the film’s North American premiere but at a venue with absolutely top notch credentials – the Chinese Theatre, formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre after its founder, opened in May, 1927 with a screening of Cecil B DeMille’s “The King of Kings”. It has since launched dozens of classics including the original “Star Wars” back in 1977, as well as hosting no less than three Academy Award ceremonies. “FLC” will be screened alongside “The Ghost of Peter Sellers”, a new feature length documentary by the veteran Anglo-Hungarian director Peter Medak, whose credits include “The Ruling Class” with Peter O’Toole, “A Day in the Death of Joe Egg” and “The Changeling” which makes it doubly an honour. The film will be repped for the duration of the festival by LA based screen writer, Victoria Arch.go to story

Feb 2019 08

In 1909 the Austrian mountaineer Florian Frederick Graf von Liechtenstein left his estate near Innsbruck and travelled to Corsica for a climbing expedition. He was never seen again. Ninety years later his grandson Otto employs two film makers to help him uncover the mystery of the disappearance, but the facts get in the way of the truth.
