Capture Hits Cannes

It's May and that can only mean one thing...Cannes!  Once again the French riviera was awash with film aficionados ready for a great ten days of parties, networking and of course films.  Here are a few snaps from our adventures in Cannes this year.

Carmarthen Bay Film Festival

We headed over to Wales for the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival where not only were our shorts Killing Thyme and The Girl in the Dress both officially selected but went head to head in the Best Comedy Award section.  A lovely day spent in Wales taking in both British and International shorts and feature films was topped off by a great evening with Killing Thyme picking up not just the award for Best Comedy but the Best of Festival award too!

Killing Thyme - Cast & Crew Première

After such a wonderful evening at the BFI Stephen Street for The Girl in the Dress screening back in December it was a no brainer to hold the cast and crew première for Capture's latest short film Killing Thyme there, so last night that's exactly what we did!  

With over a hundred guests including the film's female lead Charlotte Riley and Director of Photography acclaimed cinematographer Phil Méheux, each of the four screenings was packed with a great audience.  The reception space was abuzz with great reactions to film, lots of mingling and all the trappings of good evening (aka a well stocked bar).  It really was another brilliant evening!

The Man from Mo'Wax Nominated in Nashville

We just can't get enough of the South - after a great time in Austin we headed to Music City for The Man from Mo'Wax (formerly Artist & Repertoire) Southeast US Premiere - and what a city it was! 

Producers M J McMahon, Brian A. Hoffman, Exec Producer Jay Hoffman and esteemed screenwriter Alan Wenkus, our wonderful guest for the evening.

One of only nine films to be selected for the Music Films/Music City feature competition, The Man from Mo'Wax screened twice to amazing audiences with each screening followed by a Q&A with producer M J McMahon.

The Girl In The Dress World Premiere

Last night was the world premiere of The Girl In The Dress, and what better place to have it than as part of the BFI Film Festival!

 One of only 7 films to be chosen to screen at the festival as part of  this year's  Film London London Calling selection of shorts, the film screened as part of the Journey section of the festival.

And our very own Nick Helm did the introductions for the night!

All in all, it was a great evening and a  fantastic way to kick start the journey of our finished film.
