As I never conform by creating New Years Resolutions, this year continuing to be spontaneous was a resolution that I created for myself.
Well, tonight I popped down the road to the local arts centre-come-bar/restaurant and sat myself down with a group of lovely folk to watch back to back 8 international short films, and I must say I had a very lovely evening. The films are kind of anti-valentine themed because, well, incest isn't very romantic is it? (!) but the mix of dark and candycoated films really worked well, and the homemade mishmash of cupcakes as refreshments didn't hurt either.
The films are touring the UK throughout February, so be sure to grab a friend or indeed other half and see what you think.
one of the films shown..
circus troupes, elephants trunks, jewish immigrants, woodland nymphs, creased satin knickers.. if any of this taketh your fancy, I suggest dedicating a few minutes of your day to lose yourself in Zach Condon's perfect old world.
