Definitely, there are places where working is an experience of another kind.
At moviepilot, we have a nice tradition that when it's someone's birthday or an intern is leaving or whatever the occasion is, the person involved 'has to' bring a cake.…Continue

As you may know, we have been working on a Green Paper through which to share our research, our findings and our predictions for the future.
We thought it was about time we started publishing said paper, and give you the opportunity to read it, comment on it, add to it and share it in the social way that we celebrate here at SylC. To make it more easily digestible, we will be serialising the report over the coming weeks and months.
So (by way of an…Continue

What makes for successful film programming today? This depends increasingly on what medium or platform you’re programming – and since vastly more film viewing now takes place on TV and computer screens than in cinemas, there can’t be a “one size fits all” answer. But if real-time social screenings (what we used to cal cinema shows) are now a niche activity, then programming them probably has to find new directions.

Last Friday, I wrote about the fun I was having looking for images to post on this very blog. But it wasn't as much fun as these guys are clearly having with this disembodied leg.

Thank you Today is Boring.
I know that this sentence doesn't sound as though it makes sense. But when you realise that 'Today is Boring' is the name of a one time specialised film and video shop, which is now a film consultancy, film events and production company, and film archive it becomes clearer. And why thank you? Well, this is where I…Continue

Our experience at Edinburgh’s Filmhouse once again highlights the power of programming, I get the full audience experience by watching two films in one evening, and an April Fools joke on Facebook proves just how well loved the Filmhouse is by its current audience…
Edinburgh Filmhouse is very familiar to me. As producer of the East End Film Festival from 2003-2007, I found myself annually returning to beautiful Edinburgh only to ignore…Continue

How the Broadway Cinema has gone from strength to strength by starting from home.
One of my first notes on arriving at the Broadway Cinema reads: ‘LOCAL profile very important: Broadway at the heart of local micro-ecology‘. And it seems to me that this is the heart of the Broadway’s success. By having a clear understanding of the profile of their local audience, the cinema has built a loyal following whose word of mouth now…Continue
