It’s official: My friend Dave Mackenzie’s film, Hallam Foe, is being released in the UK on August 31st.
You may remember last October, when we had a bloggers’ screening for the movie, back when it was still in rough cut. About 20 bloggers showed up, plus David and few of the folk on the production, David gave a nice speech, we all watched the movie, then we all went and had some dinner, all paid for by Buena Vista International.
Well, we’re doing it again, to tie in with the final cut’s official release. There will be another blogger’s private screening on June 14th at 6.30 in Soho, London [Full details to be released closer to the date]. Not only will David be there like last time, he and the leading man, Jamie Bell, will be doing a Q&A session. And there’ll be complimentary drinks and munchies afterwards.
I’ve got a few tickets to give away. If you fancy coming just drop me an e-mail with the words “Hallam Foe” in the subject header, and I’ll see what I can do. Please bear in mind that the number of people wanting tickets will probably exceed the number of seats, but I’ll do my very best.
All bloggers who come along, of course, will be under no obligation whatsoever to blog about it, good or bad.
Yes, I’ve seen the film, and of course I recommend it highly. David is a seriously good filmmaker. He also made another famous Scottish movie, “Young Adam” with Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton, and is now considered a small classic. All very exciting etc.
Feel free to blog this, or spread the word as you see fit etc, Thanks.
