  • Comment on: Daniel Battsek to succeed David Kosse as Film4 boss

    Brilliant news! Wise choice, Film4. Welcome back Daniel, and good luck!

  • Comment on: Creative England parts with senior film executive

    S EVERETT's comment 15-Mar-2016 4:17 pm

    I can't get my head around this. How can this happen? Just echoing what everyone is saying - and it NEEDS saying. Richard's wealth of knowledge, generosity of spirit, support and care for filmmakers is outstanding. When I heard he'd got the job at Creative England I thought that, at last, the regions had some hope. And now, it feels like the opposite is true. Good luck, Richard, for the future - and may yours be brighter and happier than Creative England's looks right now. What a loss.

  • Comment on: Bradford International Film Festival cancelled

    S EVERETT's comment 10-Feb-2016 12:28 pm

    Shame on the people behind these changes. There are SO many people up in arms about this. First losing the photography exhibits, which are being shifted down to London - and now the death of the Bradford International Film Festival. Film is NOT 'an important part' of their future plans. They no longer have film programmers there, and the new STEM focus (science, engineering, maths. technology) - how is that FILM?!! it's going to be a Maths museum - not a media one. It used to be a great museum, and now it's what - maths?! BIFF was an important festival - especially for us who actually live 'up North'. End of an era. I hate maths.

  • Comment on: Film London launches female-focused short film fund

    S EVERETT's comment 25-Sep-2015 4:48 pm

    Anonymous - who says WOMEN don't have a love for cinema? With only 1 in 10 feature films directed by women, why not do something to address the balance - even if it starts with shorts? The fact there is a fund for shorts is good news! Apart from for female filmmakers who aren't in London, presumably? Why see something that is positive as being negative? And why do people who make negative comments always do it anonymously...?

    Great news. Good luck, Simon!

  • Comment on: Friends and colleagues remember Chris Collins

    S EVERETT's comment 13-Nov-2014 10:34 am

    What lovely tributes to a genuinely lovely guy. I hope Chris knew how we all felt about him. Still hard to believe we won't see him again.

  • Comment on: Vanishing director George Sluizer dies

    S EVERETT's comment 22-Sep-2014 10:38 pm

    The Vanishing is an amazing film. Unforgettable. I was lucky to meet him once, and he was such a lovely guy. So open and down to earth. At least he managed to finish Dark Blood after all this time. That must have made him happy.

  • Comment on: UK industry reacts to Tessa Ross leaving Film4

    S EVERETT's comment 27-Mar-2014 12:04 pm

    Tessa Ross is a legend. She will be hugely missed. The shoes she leaves behind for filling are as big as boats...

  • Comment on: John Travolta fears for future of film

    S EVERETT's comment 28-Jun-2013 4:55 pm

    That's a bit snidey, Anonymous, the jibe about Battlefield Earth. What about Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty...? He is speaking a lot of sense.

  • Comment on: MGM pacts with Fox on Poltergiest

    S EVERETT's comment 21-Jun-2013 11:14 pm

    'They moved the headstones... not the bodies.' Poltergeist is a total classic, a note perfect film. Shame we can't have the original back on the big screen just as it is. Originality wins over remakes every time.
