Title: Lovelockandload film festival
Post by: Jonny on 11 Jul 2008 - 18:38
We've got one film at our disposal. Aarron's 16mm English language print of SPECIAL COP IN ACTION.

If we can get 3 or more films on either 16 or 35mm we've got ourselves an allnighter or an allafternooner!

Anyone with any info or prints please get in touch, I'm serious as hell about this, it's do-able.

Sounds good Jonny. Early days but where are you thinking of putting it on? Wrote on the ebay thread about this but I just missed out on a 16mm print of Lenzi's Paranoia last night. Got drunk and forgot about it. It went for $50! Not stopped kicking myself all day.

Sorry for repeating myself... only just read your responses in the ebay thread.

No date and no venue. I'm just throwing out ideas. I know that the National Media Museum up here can show stuff on all formats and do hire out their venues. Not sure about places in London though, I reckon there's bound to be somewhere down there that's as flexible as the NMM.

If I can source prints for a handful of films then I'll start asking venues about possibilities.

You will, in most cases, need permission from the rights owner for public print screenings - so be warned.

Absolutely, I'm aware of all the ins and outs as regards permissions are concerned as I used to run a film night here in town and we had to rent the VHS tapes from a specialist supplier (Filmbank, if I remember rightly) who paid all the performance fees and supplied the tape. We hired THE KILLER once and they sent us the fullscreen Palace release - we showed the W/S Made In Hong Kong version instead...

I remember having to become a member of the BFFS (http://www.bffs.org.uk/index.html)

Might be worth asking one of the guys at the BHF forum about Conway Hall in Holborn where they run the monthly Gothique Film Society showing 16mm prints of old British horrors every couple of months or so,it's just off the West End so very easy to get from the main train stations.

If they do and some are obtained, there is a way of projecting subtitles at the bottom of the screen, when i went to see the Leone films in spain, they projected some Spanish subs onto the bottom of the screen.

We project subtitles onto films at work for the hard of hearing. Though the subs are provided to us on a disc that is decoded through a specialist piece of kit and then projected onto the screen via separate video projector in synch with the movie.

To do this for a niche market 70's Italian crime film would be nigh on impossible or extremely expensive as we'd have to pay for the subtitles to be put onto a DTS Access disc and then find a venue that has the equipment to play it back.

Try the Riverside in Hammersmith  (it's just up the road from where I live which is a plus too).

what they did somwhow was rip the subs from a dvd and beam it up from a laptop at the bottom of the screen.

Sounds like a clever idea. You'd have to re-time the subs a little so they matched the running speed of film rather than video.

Worth looking into, I've a mate who does video projection stuff at club nights. He might know of a way to do this.

That's where we went for the FAB press NIGHTMARE USA fest isn't it. I was thinking of there, do they have 16mm facilities?

I think their website details all the services they offer.

So, ...I guess this means Olympia, WA is out of the question?  :-*

Oh, well  :-[ ... Oh, yeah :-X

...I'll have my own little private Eurocult Fest.  :'(

...I already have to do that anyway.   ::)

Thought so. I would have posted a link for you but I was on the way to put the kids in the bath.

Darren is a part time projectionist there. I'm sure he could get you a deal sorted - we used it to film in a few years ago for the SCANNERS extras.

Just a note that Bradford might sadly be out of the question for a while, one of the two cinemas is being refurbished.

Wherever it is (within the UK), I'd be interesting in coming...  :P

Just bought an excellent condition 16mm print of Margheriti's western Take A Hard Ride. If you want it, it's yours for the Lovelockandload film festival wherever and whenever it happens.
