Screening and Awards Night of Wimbledon International Short Film Fest, Friday 12 October 2018, 7pm (doors open 6.30pm)(venue Wimbledon BookFest’s Big Tent on the Common). This is WFC’s initiative to get excellent short films out there and boost the profile of film industry new talent. Growing in importance year on year Metro ranks Wimbledon Shorts as one of the top short film fests in the country. It’s a brilliant night – see the films, vote for your favourite film for the Audience Award, watch it get tense for filmmakers at the award presentations, meet filmmakers and industry judges. Something different. Tickets: https://www.wimbledonbookfest.org/bookings/bookevent.aspx?instanceID=153950
An outstanding night for If… – another sell-out event brought to you by WFC in association with Wimbledon Bookfest, featuring one of the lead actors and author of Filming If…, David Wood, for Q&A. Thank you, David, for fascinating behind the scenes insight and fielding those questions.
Next up is Phantom Thread, Tuesday October 23, Daniel Day Lewis’ last film …possibly. It’s simply superb. At first glance a restrained topic – the closed world of a 1950’s couturier – but what a plot, how exquisitely acted by such accomplished actors. What you’ll get is a melodrama that feels in the moment quiet and puzzling: did that just happen, were we meant to laugh there? What you’re left with are possibilities and thoughts that come to you for days afterward – and you speculate still with enjoyment and great satisfaction in the knowledge you’ve seen something unusually good.
With many more top speakers confirmed for our hand-picked Autumn films and more planned for the Summer/Spring season, now’s a great time to join WFC.
