Trinity's Daily diary
Not much happening today - the only premiere of note was the
controversial "Trouble Every Day" by Claire Denis, an everyday tale
about sexually oriented cannibalism, starring Beatrice Dalle and
Vincent Gallo. Sadly, there were no live demonstrations of some of the
sequences in the film, as the cinema refused to clean up the gore
All day, enthusiastic budding screenwriters attended a number of
events run by The Script Factory. From the initial development through
to a reading of a script these events were an interesting and
informative journey through the land of screenplays. If you're
interested in writing, there is also a free workshop being put on by
the BBC on Friday - contact the Film Festival for ticket details.
What we did have today was a number of announcements. Starting with
the Best of the Fest lineup,
announced yesterday other announcements include a live online webchat
with Robin Gutch, head of FilmFour labs (Wednesday); a day long look
at the "American Fringe", including discussions by a number of stars
at the Dominion Cinema (Wednesday); and an interview with Emma
Thompson at the UGC (Sunday).
Finally, a last thing to look out for on Wednesday is the Bafta
interview featuring Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker, the acclaimed
documentary makers - startup.com and Down From The Mountain are
featured in this years festival.
