Hannah McGill: EIFF Artistic Director

Massive congratulations to my lovely pal McGill, who was appointed the new Artistic Director of the Edinburgh International Film Festival today. Well deserved.

How about a Jarman retrospective next year, Han? You know you want to.

  3. Jarman? Please explain why?

    Uh, because he’s without doubt one of the great British film-makers of the 20th Century. Because you could show his early Super-8 works as they were originally screened, at horribly slow speeds. Because you could have a symposium on his pivotal role in the development of the music video in the UK. Because you could ask Simon Fisher Turner to do a live alternate sound mix for Blue, or have a band do a new live soundtrack. Because you could show his paintings as well as his film work. Because you could show a mini-season of queer cinema shorts alongside his work. Because you could do a tie-in with the Book Festival featuring readings of his poetry and diaries, &c. &c..

    But, most of all because watching films in the cinema is not the same fucking thing as watching them on a telly, you ninny.
