Book, Film, Give us a clue

We’re helping out with this event the lovely 7 inch Cinema are putting on next Wednesday: “Footnotes”. Come along and watch, drink and buy a copy if you fancy.

Wednesday, 20th October
7:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Venue: The Victoria

“It’s a truism that great novels make for mediocre movies, but the rule doesn’t always apply when it comes to poems and short stories. As the Birmingham Book Festival draws to a close this informal evening of film and music will gather a few of the best examples, animated shorts which riff beautifully on the the likes of Bukowski, Albers and Murakami. We’ll also be asking some Book Festival guests to nominate favourite shorts, and guests including Catherine O’Flynn and Jon Bounds will provide ‘live accompaniment’ (ie, talk over) a selection of archive footage from the Media Archive of Central England. Musical interludes come courtesy of the ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp.

This evening is presented in association with Dirty Bristow, a fabulous new compendium of words and pictures produced in Birmingham. Issues will be on sale on the night.”

It’s all part of the Birmingham Book Festival and as such you can even book online.
