Totally rad surf film night at The Etches Sun 21 October

Totally rad surf film night at The Etches Sun 21 October

Last year's surf film night at The Etches Collection Museum in Kimmeridge was full to capacity and we have an even better one planned for this Sunday with the backing of Animal UK! It's looking to be a rad day overall. We'll be running a beach clean with Surfers Against Sewage from 2pm, then the evening kicks off at 5pm up the road with chilli & rice (provided by The Salt Pig), a couple of rad surf films as well as a raffle to win an Animal wetsuit! Tickets are only £10 (and include the food and raffle ticket) and we'll have a pay bar, surf gear exhibition, etc... We were looking to run a fun little expression session but the forecast isn't looking good enough for it now so we've cancelled it. Buy your tickets here: buff.ly/2OpBLNT

Bridget O'Driscoll entertains with behind the scenes interview

Bridget O'Driscoll entertains with behind the scenes interview

The festival is very grateful to Bridget O'Driscoll, Supervising Dialogue Editor on Miss Sloane, for a really interesting Q&A tonight at the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club. The audience was treated to insights into her role as dialogue editor for Director John Madden and the challenges of ensuring the fast paced technical dialogue of the lobbyist central character (played by Jessica Chastain) is crisp and clear amongst a multitude of background sounds.

We are very much looking forward to watching the soon to be released Thomas Vinterberg film ‘Kursk’, where we can hear Bridget’s skills again!

F Rated Films

F Rated Films

The BFI have produced research which shows that only 7% of the top 250 films in 2016 were directed by women. In terms of the roles of director, producer, writer, executive producer, cinematographer and editor, only 20% were women. 25% of all films had no women at all in any of these roles. These statistics describe an industry where the vast majority of those involved in cinematic story-telling are male and invariably white, middle-class and middle-aged.
