Welcome to our all-new Filmspot blog. I’ll be posting up plans for events, as well as news/ archives trailers/ features that could be of interest to fellow ‘Filmspotters’. To start us off, here is the story so far:
In October 2009, we ran our pilot event at Newhaven Fort, with a showing of Frankenstein (1931) for children (and the young at heart).
In the evening, we notched up the spook-factor with Guillermo Del Toro’s atmospheric The Devil’s Backbone (2001) – and were joined by some rather sinister characters (a rather sinister Victorian urchin, pushing a miniature ‘Rosemary’s Baby’-eque pram, an unpredictable zombie-beast and a ghostly trumpeter!)
We followed this up with our second event at Newhaven Fort, in July 2010, showing The Great Dictator, with our very own Chaplin (supplied by David Girt)
Also in July, we forged links in Brighton with the CMP Festival, helping to facilitate a screening of Barbara Myers and Paul Loman’s The Making of George at St Nick’s Church.
For Hallowe’en 2010, we put on an ‘indoor drive-in’, again at Newhaven Fort, with the ever-popular Rocky Horror Picture Show
We’re currently finalising plans for a busy Spring/ Summer season – and will be posting more details as soon as these events are confirmed. It’s all looking very exciting, so be sure to check back soon!
