Fantastic Film Festival 2010

So, I just spent three fantastic days in Lund at the Fantastic Film Festival.

Gave one lecture – Horror Storytelling at the Lund Film Accademy

Saw two movies - Simon Rumley’s disturbing and brilliant piece Red, White & Blue and Yorgos Noussias’s zombie comedy Evil in the Time of Heroes.

Talked with three filmmakers – Jake West, Simon Rumley and Sarah Caldwell (Who also writes for us on

Hung out with loads of friends, fellow geeks and colleagues – Kim Newman and Phillip Bergson among them.

Had a great time in other words. A small, but wonderful little festival, that I certainly want to go back to next year… as a visitor and not a guest there to work. Because there where a lot of interresting movies that I unfortuntately missed.

If anyone wants’ to see the lecture that my mate Steve and I gave, drop me a mail and I’ll send you a link to the feed which was aired live over the net.

With all that out of the way, I can get back to focussing on stuff that’s been neglected!

Stay tuned.
