Brothers in arms
Another upcoming festival roundup for Boris-Noris (Laura-Beth Cowley's fantastic UWE MA film on which I made some unpleasant noises and removed some rigs) as it continues to knock it out of the park. This Monday, May 21st, the film screens at Albania's A-FestFilm (formerly Anifest Rozafa) in their Films for Age 13 programme that will kick off at 11:30am at the Millenium Cinema in Tirana.
From the 25th of this month La Boîte Carrée's touring programme Le Plein de Super  (whose 2018 season Boris-Noris is a part of) will kick off its first batch of screenings throughout France. The dates for this leg of the tour are:
  • 25th May - Brissac-Quincé
  • 2nd June - Étrich
  • 8th June - Saint-Nazaire
  • 15th June - Montbert
  • 29th June - Ligné
The tour then resumes in July, this time traveling throughout Portugal at the following locales:
  • 14th July - Ericeira
  • 19th July - Alfarim
  • 20th July - Lagoa de Albufeira
  • 21st July - Quinta do Conde
  • 22nd July - Sesimbra
  • 24th July - Santa Cruz
  • 27th July - Proença-a-Nova
  • 28th July - Sobreira Formosa
  • 29th July - Montes da Senhora
For full information check out the tour's official website and if you make it to a screening be sure to send a postcard!
The Bristol Festival of Puppetry's specially-curated screening Women in Puppetry and Puppet Animation will be shown again in June, this time as a standalone event at Exeter Phoenix. As a nifty bonus for this one Laura-Beth will be in attendance for an onstage Q&A with Puppet Place curator Emma Windsor after the screening, which will be happening on Tuesday June 12th at 7:30pm - more info here.
The following weekend the Art All Night - Trenton International Film Festival will be taking place at New Jersey's historic Roebling Wire Works. This one is an intense, 200-film marathon that takes place entirely within 24 hours. Fortunately Boris-Noris will be screening at the civilised 12:05pm slot on the Sunday (June 17th).
That's all for now but there'll be plenty more a-comin', so stay alert.
