I'm not going to Cannes this year which as you can imagine has made me very sad - NOT! Just to prove that you don't need to travel to the South of France and put up with all that madness - I'm inviting submissions for my rival alternative virtual film festival right here in the UK.

    Thanks to Bill Cumming for "INK" recommendation. Would have missed it from the cover. Nothing like Inception as the blurb has it but a film with heart and soul, and I loved the bones of it as I did and do of:

    Far North
    Monsters
    Moon
    Curse of the Golden Flower
    Winter's Bone
    The Road
    Guilt
    The Island (Ostrov)
    Japanese Story
    etc.

    I loved Holly Lubbock's documentary 'Fezeka's Voice', a beautifully nuanced and inspiring piece of work. A committed and purposeful work, but in no sense 'worthy'. I saw it once and loved it, saw it a second time and got even more out of it, which doesn't happen every day. It underlines how some of the best film work, here and elsewhere, is being done in the documentary field.

    Just saw My Dog Tulip at the GFT. Simply, brilliantly lovely. How can you not like this film and choose to be shown at the alt Canne

    You might want to include an Australian indie film called Snowtown

    http://www.snowtownthemovie.com/

    Described by one Australian reviewer as "the most frightening Australian film ever made"

    I was lucky enough to get invited by a friend to a screening of Eliminate Archie Cookson a few weeks ago in Bristol. It's a great film about a spy going through the motions at an unsatisfactory desk job before he stumbles across some incriminating tape recordings. From that moment on everyone is out to kill him whilst he does his best to patch things up with his estranged wife and child. It had me laughing all the way through and still tickles me two weeks after seeing it.

    Add it to your list Mark and keep up the good work!

    A documentary called Catfish was on telly a couple of weeks ago, and I found it compelling and incredibly interesting. It should definitely be included! Showed the downside of social networking in a very twisted way, but also with some humour too. It scared my 15 year old sister enough to vow never to go on Facebook again... but that only lasted a couple of hours!

    Wim Wender's Pina (in 2D) is playing at Poole Lighthouse from May 13.

    I've never seen it..may be a wee bit pretentious going by the trailer.. but is clearly a film "Of Certain Regard" ..in my opinion!

    Mark, you are a god who walks among us.. Pick up the People, Pick up the Power.

    No one requires "permission" to make a movie these days.. just do it.

    Let's dismantle Hollywood and re-assemble it as our own beautiful and bizarre creation! I just posted a piece about your project on my own blog.. Viva La Revolution.

    Love

    Simon Marlow

    I just caught the end of the Uist Ecofilm festival but Wasteland (dir Lucy Walker) was outstanding and Culla Bay beats the Croisette hands down.

    Un Certain Regard: HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN
    Hollywood Blockbuster: FAST FIVE, aka FAST & FURIOUS 5: RIO HEIST

    On a related note, I got 2 actors from the movie to praise my writing. Check it out on my blog, Dr. K.
