film Marketing Co-ordinator, Sam Adams, is looking forward to From Up On Poppy Hill: “As a lover of Studio Ghibli, I’ll be counting down the days to see one of their more recent animated masterpieces. If that wasn’t enough, I’m being utterly spoilt with another anime film in the form of Studio Chizu’s beautifully romantic, Wolf Children. Excited doesn’t even come close!”
Visual Arts Manager, Fiona Cassidy, is looking forward to Museum Hours: “Sunday afternoon visits to Tate Britain began my interest in Fine Art. I’m still fascinated by how museums create an environment for the enjoyment of art. It will be interesting to see how the characters’ story grows in this setting.”
Engagement Manager, Simon Morris, is looking forward to Le Week-end: “For my money Jim Broadbent is one of the most brilliant actors of all time and any film with him in a starring role is a must-see. With Le Week-end also having been written by Hanif Kureishi it promises to be a treat, with plenty of sparks flying between the two leads.”
Technician, Mike Scott, is looking forward to A Monster in Paris: “My definite highlight is A Monster in Paris. I’m always a big fan of animation and this one has a madcap monkey in it! Monkeys always make for good fun in films.”
