The Film Working Group meets every last Monday of the month at 8pm, before the film starts.

Come along and help us put together the programme or suggest new directions for us to move in.

Yeah, I have ideas again, would like to get involved.

Before the film seems like a good time for the meeting.

Shouldn't we just call 'bottom liners' pants ?

yes it would b great to have this meetings again. at the moment we are choosing by people talking/mailing to charlotte and me or picking some of the movie thread on the bb. but i would really like to discuss about this with a few people rather than just one person choosing.

cool.

i would like to propose that the group deals with both the monday night screening plus a resurrected tuesdays documentary night (things like the doc beerpunk mentioned, plus I would like to get around to screening the TED [and other] talks i mentioned ages ago). thoughts?

last monday was a bit adhoc in that Superman 3 was advertised, but it ended up being Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow as the Superman 3 DVD could not be found. imo, Superman 3 is way less interesting than the recut of Superman 2.

Ida has asked me to forward film[at]theforest.org.uk to both her and Charlotte which I have done, so i guess we have our pants for now.

right, so for upcoming films; can we have an updated list of films people would like to see screened? please include a link to either it's wikipedia or IMDB entry (preferably it's wikipedia entry as pretty much all of them link to IMDB anyway).

* SICK: The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist - documentary, beerpunk
* Persepolis - animated film, beerpunk
* States of Terror(?): Red Army Faction - bbc documentary mentioned by beerpunk IRL on monday. might be hard to find a copy of this having turned up nowt on a brief net trawl.

tues doc's sounds cool - just note that the original plan was that it was in the 7 to 9 slot so there still time to have a band play after
it was felt, and i agree, that 2 nights of film where no-one could talk in the cafe was to much
Tariq is still in town, if anyone has contact details they could see if he wants to be involved.

live music is better than film --- every fortnight could be good or - at least - one night a month ...

There was a meeting yesterday ?

Sorry if I missed it. Of course should have gone to film anyway.

Ideas,

The Safety of Objects http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0256359/, primarily because I'm fan of Timothy Olyphant, and

The Pleasure of Being Robbed http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt1189259/

Documentaries,

The Flying Scotsman http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0472268/

and

For All Mankind http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0097372/, which is more famous for its Brian Eno soundtrack, and I have it on DVD.
