October 3rd, 2017.
It's London Film Festival time!! Much like Christmas, I spend two weeks IN it, another two weeks recovering from it, about a month per year not thinking about it, and ten months increasingly looking forward to it.
And now it's here! Or rather, tomorrow it's here. But like in 2015, there was a kind of 'launch' event on the day prior to it, at Guildhall, to raise money for the "Back The Future"... foundation? fund? concept? .. anyway, a really prestigious watch company sponsors it and Tables to the event cost some £10,000.
It's free to stand outside, though. Here's how it went down:
so... that was an event. quite an enjoyable one, too - especially after the halfway mark, prior to which it had seemed almost nobody was turning up to this event, or if they were that they'd be simply shepherded into the venue via a side entrance or subterranean passage way or smuggled inside packing cates or something.
And of course it's another entry for The Archive Of Movie Premieres, in advance of a fortnight where I risk losing as many twitter followers as I gain when I put an update every day for the premieres of a two-week long film festival.
Until next time!
