7inch october listings

October 8, 2008

Hello,

Slightly belated listings for you this month – though I suppose we always
say that. For those of you new to this list, 7 Inch Cinema send out semi-
regular information on things you might be interested in, mostly film- or
Birmingham-related. Firstly, a wee 7inch update…

WORCESTERSHIRE ON FILM
We are about a third of the way through the tour, having so far visited
people in Kidderminster, Redditch and Evesham and rocked their world.
Next up, Tenbury Wells tonight. There is an itinerary and photo diary on
the projects page.

THE FABULOUS ANIMATION OF WLADYSLAW STAREWICZ
Sunday 26 October at the Library Theatre in B’ham
Bizarre and lovely stop-frame animation from the 20s and 30s,
presented by collector Dennis Nyback in association with Birmingham
International Film Society.

…Then back at the Hare and Hounds on Sunday 30 November for
archive programme  HOUSEWIVES’ CHOICE, with special guests
Sugarfoot Stomp. By the way, if you failed to pick up the new Pram
DVD ‘Shadow Shows of the Phantascope’ at our recent launch you can now get it online.

FLATPACK FESTIVAL 3
Yes, it is beginning to rumble on the horizon. Venues are getting fixed
up, wishlists scribbled on napkins and websites rejiggled. For now,
here are the dates:
11-15 March, 2009.

Hubba hubba!
