What are you doing on Monday the 5th of September? That’s right, this Monday?
Well I’ll be here watching a tonne of awesome music videos and short films including a double screening of Mixtape and Disco.
Go on treat yourself.
It’s not everyday I get called a wunderkind, which The Reel have kindly termed me on their Facebook page. Not sure I can live up to a word that literally means ‘Wonder Child’. Having said that I am definitely getting it tattooed on my face.
The Reel have been hugely supportive of my work and I’m honoured to have the shorts play as part of their festivities.
So maybe I’ll see you there yeah.
Mixtape & Disco will be playing a number of times next weekend on the Alternative Stage at both Reading and Leeds festivals, including screening before Greg Araki’s Kaboom and Aussie muso/comic Tim Minchin. Wicked.
Here are the full details if you fancy checking out the films in their first outing as a double bill:
6.40pm – Followed by Kaboom
2pm – Followed by Steve Hughes, Jared Christmas and Tim Minchin
I’m really excited about these screenings and I’ll be at Reading for the whole weekend having LOLs for breakfast. So if you see a yellow lifeboat jacket flag me down!
Also very excited to hear so much new good music, Cloud Control and Metronomy as well as Latitude favourites Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines and Anna Calvi.
We also have times for Port Townsend and Branchage up on the Screenings page. Check it.
Disco will be playing at the Branchage IFF in Jersey next month as part of the Short Film programme. Wooyeah.
The festival is named after a hedge cutting tradition in Jersey and is totally unique, here’s what Dazed had to say about it last year.
It’s very exciting for me to be playing at this amazing festival alongside some incredible feature films and shorts including the magnificent Senna and Le Quattro Volte, not to mention live re scores, parties and other funnanigans.
I’ll be attending the festival so if you’re around come and say hello!
Screening stuff is up here as always.
