Marvellous January

Hullo Dear Player! One does hope you are having marvellous January. If not, fear not, for here we share a medley of do's for you to peruse. There's bound to be one or even a few you'll find hard to resist. 

Let's embark upon this remarkable season, with two annual gems: the London International Mime Festival (more on our friends in a second) and the London Short Film Festival (14-23 Jan) taking place at various venues across the capitol. We talk to the co-founder and Artistic Director of LSFF, Philip Ilson who shares his insights, useful for the short film aficionado and newbie in equal measure.

What else? Did you know Naomi Campbell's cousin is the highly talented playwright Paul Anthony Morris? His play, Conundrum, is at the Young Vic starring Anthony Ofoegbu (Barber Shop Chronicles). Paul and Anthony had a chat for Run-Riot about all things conundrum. Enjoy!

Oh you Pretty Things! Yes, we're giving away tickets for select films from the David Bowie season at the BFI Southbank. From Basquiat to Ziggy and Mr Lawrence

Over at Camden's Roundhouse is the In The Round Festival where you'll find indie quartet girl-band Goat Girl. We have tickets to give away!

And now, introducing our Guest Editor's this week, Helen Lannaghan and Joseph Seelig, director's of the London International Mime Festival (LIMF).

Brush aside any misconception of what mime might be at once! LIMF is often described as extraordinary visual theatre - theatre without words - crossing boundaries with dance, circus, film, music, and all sorts of staggering physical feats. Read Helen and Joseph's interview with writer Rosemary Waugh where they chat about this years festival line-up, and praise the highly talented artists involved during this surreal chapter in our collective lives. 

Well, dear player, engage how you can, enjoy, stay safe. We'll write again soon. Bottoms up! Jamie x
