December 2nd, 2018.
Since having a bad time and also getting an arguably valid online smackdown last time I did a BIFA journal (in 2015) I have felt little or no desire to return to the BIFAs - the British Independent Film Awards. But when the weather proved both mild and dry and I found myself still at home at 4:15pm on a Sunday having accomplished relatively little with my day, I figured… why not make a comeback and see if anyone notices?
Here’s how it went down.
So… that was that. I had just enough time to pack up and head to Blackfriars to catch the train that was then delayed by more than 10 minutes because f**k you we’re Govia Thameslink and we don’t give a crap. Still.. can’t blame that on BIFA, and given I only invested about four hours from beginning to end on this event (plus a further three hours back in the apartment doing editing)… it was probably still worth it to chalk up another +1 for the Archive of Premieres.
Until next time? Yeah….. I think I can still make two more events this year before I close off 2018… but we’ll see.
