Over the weekend I attended the Isle of Man Film Festival where my short film ‘Modern Man’ was screened. It was an awesome event with a huge variety of incredible films shown from all around the globe! It was exciting to be part of such a high calibre of filmmaking talent and we even won an award for BEST COMEDY SHORT!! Woohooo! The highly acclaimed film critic Mark Kermode was there to help with judging and to hand out the awards!
One of my favourite moments at the festival was watching the 1928 silent classic ‘Beggars of Life‘ scored by a live band. The band made the experience completely unique and magical! As a filmmaker it’s so exciting watching films from the past and seeing how this incredible art form has developed over the years!
I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who made the Isle of Man Film Festival possible and for all the blood sweat and tears that was put into making it such an exciting event!
Until next time, over and out.
