We went down this afternoon to the amazing Hackney Picturehouse to watch the seven films being shown as part of Hackney Film Festival's Emerging Filmmakers screening. There was a great mix of animations, documentary and interesting characters. Despite the extreme heat, perhaps generated from all the excitement, it was really enjoyable and makes me remember that I really have to go to the cinema more often (Picturehouse seats; soo comfortable). There was a vote at the end and the audience chose my animation Forget Me Not as their favourite, so thanks a giant bunch! Hackney Film Festival extends its immense kindness by sending me and the crews of 2 other chosen films on a 'Filmmaking masterclass' details TBC. Maybe they thought mine was a desperate case.
Either way, thanks so much HFF! See you next year!
