The Brits are here again!
AVIVA Redaktion

From May 6 to May 12 the 5th Britspotting independent film festival will show some of the latest British films, and for the first time, with a special focus on Ireland

More than 30 feature films and documentaries will be screened in competition at this year´s Britspotting.

Highlights of the festival.

Two feature length films which are not to be missed, and both directed by women:
This Little Life (2002) directed by Sarah Gavron. German premier. This is a heart wrenching film about a premature baby, Luke, who just weighs a little more than a pound, the intense bonding felt by his mother and the hard decisions that have to be made. Rosemary Kay´s screenplay was awarded the BBC´s Dennis Potter Screenwriting Award and is an adaptation of her novel "Between Two Eternities".
Jelly Dolly (2003) World premier! Director and screenwriter: Susannah Gent. This is definitely a film for anyone who has ever ended a relationship or gone a little crazy.

Big names will be also be featured such as Thaddeus O´Sullivan, with his film: The Heart of Me , Paul Greengrass with Bloody Sunday (winner of the Golden Bear, 2002) and Mike Hodges, with his new thriller I´ll Sleep When I´m Dead.

This year´s Irish Focus will showcase recent works of all genres - short films, features and documentaries. New talent like John Crowley and David Gleeson, as well as renowned directors such as Conor McPherson (Saltwater, I Went Down), Aislan Walsh (Joy Riders, Sinners) and Pat Collins (Necklace of Wrens), Abbas Kiarostami (The Art of Living.

Showing the potential of digital film making, Britspotting will screen a number of remarkable digitally shot films: Chris Cooke´s One for the Road, Andrea Vecciato´s Luminal, Four Eyes by Duncan Finnigan, The Blind Spot by Tim Kirkby just to name a few. There will also be a panel and discussion about digital film making with Chris Cooke and others.

This year´s range of documentaries is extremely diverse, as always. For example: Morgan Matthew´s Rude Girls (about teenage girl gangs in Britain), John Dower´s reflection on Britpop and Cool Britannia in Live Forever, Sorry, No Vacancies (with German Subtitles) written, directed and photographed by Marie-Jeanne Urech (a touching documentary about a seedy London hotel).

Films will be shown at ACUD, Central and fsk am Oranienplatz. Details concerning the film programme, film timetable, theatre performances, seminars, workshop and parties at:
