Our first screening – we did it

So we keep going on and on about Phobia and Kino… blah blah… but yesterday was really great. We really enjoyed it. It took me quite a while to figure out where the Horse Hospital was, but that’s not because it’s particulary difficult or hidden (it’s for me, not for other people) but because I’m not good with maps and I kept looking at google maps on my phone trying to figure out where this magical tiny street was supossed to be. Found it opposite to the “friend at hand” pub… pub which I still wonder why it has that name. I assumed it had something to do with the little picture of a Saint Bernard (as in the dog breed)… but anyway, let’s get to the pint point!

We got there and people started coming in, loads of people… the place wasn’t particulary large so you can say it was pretty crowded (over 100 people i’d say), which was really cool and felt exciting.

The host (i don’t remember his name, sorry) was great and he started taking out DVDs out of a bag. Phobia was the 3rd film to be shown and from my point of view, I think it had quite a good reception!

Generally, I have to say, most of the films were very good. I didn’t expect such a high quality being this an open-mic screening (i.e. no filter). Positive surprised and maybe thinking whether we should apply filters to film…

Kino 7

Yesterday we had a great time at the Kino 7 open-mic screenings.

A total of eleven films, an incredible performance by Dan Smith and lots of mingling around.

Definitely coming back!
