Ok, kiddies, it’s that time

Ok, kiddies, it’s that time of year again: the 12th Chichester Film Festival. 9 English premieres, 3 UK premieres, international film short competition, Australian film season, World cinema season, East Asian cinema season, late night "Xtreme" cinema, a Bertrand Tavernier retrospective, a Luchino Visconti retrospective and the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival On Tour. Top stuff.
On my watch-if-I-can list:

  • Jeremy Hardy v The Israeli Army
  • Cypher
  • Camp
  • Crackerjack
  • Petites Coupures
  • Goyangireul batakhae
  • Koroshiya Ichi
  • Der Amerikanische Freund
  • L.627
  • L’Appat
  • Rocco e i suoi fratelli
  • Il Gattopardo

Admittedly, we all know that I’ll never get to see all of these. A lot of them will be screened during the day, and for part of the time I will be out of the county, even out of the country. But if I get to even one or two, I will be very pleased indeed.
