Vale 2012

So 2012 is over. 

A year where I've travelled to WNDX in Canada, to Ireland, to the OFFoff in Belgium and the inaugural European Beat Studies Conference in Holland, to curate and screen movies and / or talk. I've also visited the KW in Berlin, Germany for the Cinema of Transgression retrospective and the UK as well. 

I've had essays included in numerous books and contributed regular monthly columns to FilmInk and articles to the Fortean Times and elsewhere. There's been several radio and television appearances plus work on a movie for director Alex Munt. 

I've also co-curated a photography show with Linsey Gosper and programmed sessions at the London and Sydney Underground Film Festivals, and as per usual program directed Revelation. 

Next year is already shaping up to be a busy year, and there will be posts here semi-regularly.  

Thanks to everybody who helped, supported or just turned up this year.

Canadian Beat Screenings

I'm going to be travelling to Winnipeg at the end of the month to screen beat film at the WNDX Festival of Moving Image, I'm screening on 27th, 28th and 29th and lecturing on 30th. This will be the first time I've curated and lectured in Canada so I'm really looking forward to the event.

Underground in Eire.

I will be a guest at the Third Annual Underground Cinema Film Festival, Dublin, September 13th - 16th at the Royal Marine Hotel Dun Laoghaire. I'll be talking and programming a day of screenings, the full list of which will be posted on the festival's website. This will be my first time in the country, and the films will all be premieres drawn from the period 1980 - 2012.
