Tune for the Blood will be screened at Oxford Real Farming Conference

2012-11-13 00:00:00

The Oxford Real Farming Conference brings together people who are finding innovative ways to face the challenges of feeding the planet. This year some of the issues  for discussion include: supporting new entrants; cutting out intermediaries in the supply chain (the use of community-owned enterprises from farms to distribution systems); how the law can be used to grant access to land; mobile milking parlours;
apprenticeship schemes; smallholdings; the importance of local food networks.

Tune for the Blood is screening on Thursday January 3rd at 5pm.  Russell Carrington, one of the stars of the film, will be doing presentations at the Conference and there will be a chance to talk to him. More details about the screening will be coming soon but in the meantime if you want to know more about the conference click here.

Another chance to see Tune for the Blood at a local venue.  And there are rumours that there will be a buffet beforehand with local fare.  Afterwards there will be a Q&A with the director and soon-to-be announced member(s) of the 'cast'.  There are only 65 seats in this small but beautifully venue, so don't leave it too late.  You can get ticket information here.

Tune for the Blood invited to submit to the British Independent Film Awards

We were invited to submit Tune for the Blood for the British Independent Film Awards. So we did.  With the likes of Nostalgia for the Light and Queen of Versailles and Marley in the running - how would you rate our chances?  Hmmm..but it's great to see Tune for the Blood up on the website!

Other films in other categories include Lawless, Kid with a Bike, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, and my favourite feature film of this year, Breathing - understated, poignant, visually taut film from Austria.  There are many more brilliant films on the list...

Thanks to all at Festival of British Cinema screening in Talgarth

Thanks to all who came to see Tune for the Blood at the Talgarth venue of the Festival of British Cinema. Despite the deluge, we had a good audience who were engaged and knowledgeable - it all led to a long and interesting discussion after the film screening, with Richard Greatrex from the Festival leading it with some fine questions.  Russell Carrington and Christine Hope brought with them their enthusiasm and experience exploring sustainable systems as well as their daily experience working on the land and in the rural economy  These Q&A discussion sessions are such a valuable part of the screening experience, for us, and I hope for the audience, as they are a chance for people not only to ask questions, but to exchange ideas and form links that can carry on into the future.  We hope that we can somehow find some way to subsidise the 'cast' members to go out with the film on a regular basis.  Small organisations can often not afford to pay expenses, never mind a small fee and it would be great to be able provide this experience to more groups and organisations.

Tune for The Blood at the Festival of British Cinema  2012
 Sunday September 23,  2pm at Talgarth Town Hall

We are thrilled to be part of the 4th Festival of British Cinema which is extending its reach to Talgarth in Wales, where we will be screening Tune for the Blood. We are hoping that some Wales YFC members might come along and contribute to the discussion!

This is what the Festival Organisers say:

'This year the festival has adopted the slogan BIGGER, BOLDER, BETTER and to this end has added new venues at the Talgarth Town Hall and the fabulous new Booths Cinema in Brook Street, Hay on Wye as well as returning to the Hay Parish Hall. It promises to be an exciting festival this year covering everything from 'Tune of the Blood', a moving documentary about the life of young Herefordshire farmers, to 'The Music Lovers', a tribute to the late and great Ken Russell. '

Meanwhile, last night we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at a screening which was part of the Abergavenny Food Festival Fringe.  Christine Hope and Ben Pritchard joined me in an interesting Q&A session with a lovely audience.  It was moderated by Dave Phillips who was also the projectionist.  Big thanks to both Dave and Carol Phillips who organised the screening and did the marketing legwork. They are part of a team who run the Abergavenny Film Society and to find out more about the film society, click HERE.
