It's your sporadic blogger here (guess who re-watched Clueless recently!)
A couple of things you should be checking out this month:
Online: All Animated. animators community I started following them on facebook this week and already been introduced to this little gem:
Birmingham - Afrovibes festival at The Drum. It was a fabulous success last time and features international dance, theatre and music. It's also touring around.
It's worth just popping down for the photos on display in the cafe by South African Artist Tyler Dolan : Here's his website and the festival website
Also it's October, so it's Black History Month and there are fabulous events accross Birmingham. I am planning on heading to the mac on Sunday with photographer Vanley Burke. You can follow the Birminum trail featuring places from the photographs in his exhibition charting Birmingham immigrant communities.
Anyone else excited about the new lady in charge of the London Film Festival, Claire Stewart? just me - can't be! I probably won't make the festival, but this piece on shorts programmer Phil Ilson has me seeing if I can rework my schedule.
Also perpetual PlanetEsther fave, Cornerhouse is merging with the Library Theatre and recently announced it's new name. I am not quite used to it yet, but as long as it has the same ethos, I suspect I will have no problem making it my occasional Home.
Happy October folks!
