We love London
Or more specifically, we love the London Film Festival, because that's where 1234 is going to have it's world permiere. The press launch was today, and so were we. I was sat with Richard Jobson on one side and Terrence Davies on the other (both of whom were very nice and introduced themselves, like I didn't know who they were). The cinema was packed with press, and 1234 was also included in the clip reel they showed the journalists today. After that it was upstairs to do interviews with sky movies and, best of all, London TV, where I used to work.
It was great to also finally put a face to all the LFF employees we've been in email contact with over the last few weeks. Michael Hayden, who programmed the festival, has given us a fantastic write up in the programme, so nice we may have to nick some of it for our synopsis, he does a better job of summing up the film than we ever did. His review is online here http://www.bfi.org.uk/lff/1_2_3_4.
Best of all though were the screening dates we've been given. Most films get a couple of screenings, but we've got three, two at the NFT on the southbank and one in the Ritzy in Brixton, but even better our first screening, our world premiere, is in the huge NFT1 at 9pm on friday 17th October. I really don't think we could have asked for a better slot or location.
All we've got to do is finish the stupid film in time now.
