Has Reni quit the Roses again???

Would it kill you to list the writer as well as the director?

Which, if any of these, are getting US releases?

It's not that straightforward. We regularly go out of our way to support and interview writers (arguably more so than anyone else involved with film productions), but we're looking for this to be an ongoing calendar of future releases. As such, arbitration invariably means we don't know the final writing credits of features, whereas a director and cast is more exact. - Simon

A good answer, thank you. Surely you could indicate the writers involved though, at least in some cases?

I agree you usually support writers, that was what surprised me about this actually.

Shouldn't 'A Field in England' be on your list too?

Really? That's the total output of England film community for the next nine months? "The World's End" and some other stuff?

It should, yeah. It is now!

Of course not you idiot.

No, it a selection of BRITISH movies that may be of interest to users of this website that will be released over the next 12 months or so.


The Stuart Hall Project - high risk release!

Postman Pat The Movie is the only one that sounds watchable.

" An animation about a postman and his cat." - thanks for that, I was vague on the details of the world of Postman Pat. Very illuminating.
