Another UK Event: Leeds Film Festival 2nd-12th NOVEMBER 2006
Wed Oct 4 04:14:57 EDT 2006

It just keeps getting better for us Brits....

Just had this mail through from Leeds Film Festival. An interesting mix of
old and new - classic Ozu with Kon Satoshi's latest
Paprika. Am particularly happy to see that Takeharu Watai's Little Birds,
the gruelling documentary on Iraq, is also playing. I screened this at
Raindance and was amazed at the positive reaction. I think this one might
have potential to screen more widely in the UK - I know there was a lot of
chat about it after Raindance:
