... if I don't have a film playing in London this very evening.
God, that sounds great. And in a very real sense, it is.
Look At Me, my and director Dan Turner's short, is the opening film at tonight's Candid Projection Room - a screening/networking event thrown by the Candid Arts Trust. If you haven't had a chance to see the film yet, then why not trundle along, hmm?
In festival news, the film has been nominated for an award at next month's Heart Of England Film Festival, and has been selected by the Winnipeg International Film Festival. Hopefully, more selections and perhaps nominations will follow as the year progresses.
Dan and I are off to Cannes next week, to have meetings about our next project, the feature-film ASK, while showcasing Look At Me. It's a tremendously exciting prospect. While I'm mindful of the insane amount of nonsense which is legendarily uttered at Cannes by industry folk, it feels significant to be attending as a screenwriter, rather than as a journalist. We shall drink too much, talk too much and generally be too much.
