Harold Chapman at The English Short Film Festival of Rouen: This is England. “Invisible’s” penultimate film festival (so far). Director Harold Chapman travelled in support of “Invisible” to the historic capital of Normandy (and old capital of France) as one of a handful of English film makers taking part in this new festival celebrating English film and film makers.
Harold Chapman has a new article on the great American painter George Bellows headlining in the Arbuturian. Fearless chronicler of New York’s inhabitants, athlete and political activist, Bellows made his name in America at the turn of the last century. An exhibition on his life and work is currently running at the Royal Academy until Sunday 9th of June; “George Bellows: Modern American Life”.
I’m delighted to announce that “Invisible” has its Middle East premiere this June at the Outbox International Short film Festival in Lebanon. Held in the open air archaeological site of the Roman Baths in downtown Beirut, Outbox plays over the weekend of the 27th to the 30th of June and is a celebration of short films from across the world.
Harold Chapman has just reviewed “Peace from the bottom of my art” – the exciting new exhibition of Iranian art at the Opera Gallery on New Bond Street.
