Raindance Film Festival 28 Sept-9 Oct
Before the main BFI extravaganza next month, there are a few smaller, but no less exciting aperitifs and starters to get movie-loving mouths watering.
The London Spanish Film Festival kicked off a few days ago, and Raindance, London's top independent film festival starts next week.
Here's my preview post on londonist.
And here's an excellent Top 10 of Raindance to see by Ivan Radford at i-flicks.net.
Finally, here's a nice trailer for Bonsai to make you smile.
I know it's a huge, sweeping generalisation, but I love foreign films. At least, all the foreign films I've ever seen, I've enjoyed. Which probably amounts to no more than 20 full-length feature films, but the case remains. Perhaps, with it being so hard to get foreign-language films into the UK mainstream, those that tend to make it are the cream of the crop. Perhaps if I'd seen more, I'd like fewer of them.
