Film Festival Films Online

The inaugural Twickenham Alive Film Festival sparked a lot of interest and a lot of entries. The screening and awards ceremony took place on 26th April at Twickenham Stadium in front of the assembled glitterati from among the twickerati and beyond. Having been banned from attending after an incident at another local event involving a vicar, his pet python, a bottle of tequila and a well-known Richmond Councillor (see note 1 below) your humble correspondent had to report on the evening from a safe distance. Luckily the films are now online for the great viewing public – as well as us – to enjoy. You like? We do. There’s some real talent on display from a diverse mix of film makers.

You can see a selection of the best on the Twickenham Alive website. Of the ones we’ve seen so far, we especially like The Magick of Twickenham (Toby Alington), School Run Strut (Alban Low) and Garden of Reason (Ham Youth Centre). You’ll all have your own favourites, so take a look and let us know which ones warrant a BAFTA, a Twickenham TWAFTA or would get you buffing up a couple of Golden Globes in no time.

Why not add your reviews on here?


Note 1: No such incident took place or is likely to take place.

    I was at the screenings (sorry) and I was impressed by the quality of the entries and the smoothness of the organisation on the night. All the entries had their merits and are hard to choose between, given the varying levels of professionalism and amount of budgets. The films by young film makers really stood out for imagination and vision, and I hope we’ll be seeing a lot more of them. My particular favourites are The Magick of Twickenham (of course, though I suspect Toby Allingham is a pro and his DP really knew what he was doing). Also brilliant were School Run Strut, Sanctuary, Lofty Thirst, and Nightwalking – a great twist at the end. But all that said, I haven’t seen the last five on the list.
