“Invisible” has been selected to screen at the NociCortin Film Festival in the heel of Italy. Counted as one of the largest short film festivals in the south of the country, the festival is held in the beautiful town of Noci. The festival is providing coverage for food and accommodation for the director for the duration of the festival which takes place between the 3rd and 5th of August. Heres’s hoping that travel funds are forthcoming from the various British funding bodies…

”Invisible” and “Sweep” have both been selected to screen at a prestigious Mexican film festival. The festival has asked all participating film makers to hold off on making official announcements until the 8th of October, however, so watch this space… In addition to the excitement of screening in Latin America, this selection now means that “Invisible” has screened or will screen on all continents – Europe, Asia, Australasia, Africa, North America and South America. Anyone fancy hosting a pop-up in Antarctica to make the list complete?
Harold Chapman has a new story headlining in the Arbuturian. Some of you may remember that a year ago he undertook to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats for the homeless charity Open Cinema. “20 Days in June” is the travel journal of the trip (together with photos from the journey), completed when his wife was more than eight months pregnant… A film of the adventure is in its final stages and should be on-line within a week or two.
