Tag-teaming with Filmhouse

August 5, 2010

November is generally a pretty bleak month in Auld Reekie. The festivals have long since gone, Christmas is weeks away, and the weather is invariably freezing/rainy/foggy/dark. Perfect weather to watch films by, in the almost-words of Andy Williams.

Which is precisely what we intend to do, with you and the Filmhouse.

We’re thrilled that the idea of a strand of films about, featuring or inspired by poetry, has come to real live fruition. We can reveal it’ll be happening at the Filmhouse at the start of November. We can’t reveal the films just yet, though we believe you’re in for a treat and urge you to watch this space!

What we need now is a snappy title. Poetry in Motion flew to mind. We immediately suppressed it. Following the success of Filmhouse’s crowd sourcing antics for a title for their Woody Allen season (many folk chipped in and the wonderful ‘Woody Allen: An Introspective’ was born) we and the Filmhouse are asking our friends on Twitter and Facebook for their ideas and that’s where you come in… Cineverses? Cinema Paradisonnet? Auteurs & Authors? Rhythm on Film? What’ll we call it?
