birds eye

Last night was the opening gala for birds eye view film festival at BFI Southbank.  I really look forward to this annual event.  It's an inspiring evening that celebrates and supports the creative talent of women filmakers.  This year, the guest speaker was Zoe Wanamaker followed by a selection of short films made by international directors. 

"Little Children, Big Words"  directed by Lisa James Larsson was sensitively filmed and the most memorable short of the evening.

In complete contrast I loved the animation and humour of "Tord and Tord" directed by Niki Lindroth von Bahr
