Before all this Coronavirus stuff came up we were quietly putting together a proposal for a Haringey Film Festival in June. Now we've all got to stay inside and it didn't look like it could happen anymore! However, the industry has quick to adapt; SXSW, Tribeca, Cannes, have all put together options to enjoy their festivals from the comfort of your sofa. We're seeing all sorts of options to create an online festival, and we'd like you to be a part of it!
While we figure out exactly how it's going to work we are looking for submissions from Haringey. Any film counts, the only requirement is a tie in with Haringey, it could be about Haringey, produced, written, directed, shot in Haringey. It could even be just because you are from Haringey, inspired by Haringey. It’s all about Haringey!
We're open to pretty much everything and based on what we receive we can then create some categories!
Curzon Home Cinema has an excellent collection of films to choose from, including movies that would have been playing at the Arthouse right now. You can stream Vivarium (dir. Lorcan Finnegan), Leonardo: The Works (dir. Phil Grabsky), or The Dirty War on the NHS (dir. John Pilger) right now. Moffie (dir. Oliver Hermanus) will be released on Friday, 24 April. There will be a live Q&A with the director at 8:30 PM. Calm with Horses (dir. Nick Rowland) will be released on Monday, 27 April, and a live Q&A with the director is scheduled for 8:30 PM that evening.

Double Bill: RAN(1985, dir. Akira Kurosawa) A.K. (1985, dir. Chris Marker)
RAN is the Japanese master's personal take on William Shakespeare's King Lear: a sprawling, 160 minute long historical epic set in 16th century Japan. Comes out on 26 April. MUBI has paired this with an excellent documentary about Kurosawa that Chris Marker (La Jetée, Sans Soleil ) shot during the making of RAN. A.K. will be released on the 27 April.
