Unfortunately, the U.S. House of Representatives' Energy and Commerce committee expects more of BP. Article resource - BP advertising spending budget exceeds...

The British Urban Film Festival - August Blog

Add to that filming with Lateef Lovejoy for the festival and the debut of ‘Buff on Tour’ in Cricklewood at 7.30pm the next day also - and the phrase ‘killing hours’ comes to mind, a phrase which embodies the amount of energy being exhausted – and shared in equal measure by this year's fes...

OFF/SHORT

From 2010 a nomadic City sets up two days and two nights each time in a different place. The Off/short is based on a very simple idea : give the opportunity to every short films’ or programmes’ scriptwriters, directors and producers to show their creations directly to the audience and people working in  the film industry. A place composed of short-lived screening spaces calling for the unrestrained ‘invaders’ imagination. Each participant (alone or in group) creates his own broadcasting space. Everything but a festival : no selection, no prize, no ceremony, no celebrity… Only 500 short films or programmes shown to the audience, more than 100 short-lived structures with unusual architectures and atmosphere.
