The movie 'Their Finest' already had its premiere at last year's BFI London Film Festival. However, when it was announced that the film would have a second 'Special Presentation', I figured I might as well head down to the BFI Southbank and see what I found.
Here's how it went down:
At this point I did something I rarely do : I RAN to the main entrance, cut around a few corners and zipped inside to the photographers' pen, hoping that my natural elan and the projected sense of truly *belonging* there (or perhaps a distracted or disinterested security) would allow me to take closer-range photos inside.
............So, that was that, and I was already set to head home when whispers of rumours were held to tell that across town, at the Picturehouse Central, actor/director Warren Beatty would be doing a Q&A. I'd never photographed him before...
So... that was that. The premiere ('special presentation') for Their Finest was pretty good (though the BFI LFF premiere was more complete and it's here at this link) and pretty easy... the Warren Beatty event for the movie "The Rules Don't Apply" somewhat less so on both counts. But you gotta take the good with the bad every now and then.
And more importantly (?) it's another entry into my Archive of Movie Premieres!
Until next time!
