Figgis in Birmingham
Unfortunately we won't be able to make this, what with a festival to organise, but you might be interested to know that Mike Figgis is up in Birmingham on 12 March as part of a series of talks called Boilerhouse Voices in the Jewellery Quarter. There's a very good chance that he'll be talking about digital film-making and seismic changes in the distribution and consumption of film. Tickets are £15.
During the 1970s Figgis performed at Birmingham Arts Lab as a member of experimental theatre troupe The People Show. The People Show is still going today, and their site has a nice archive of the old shows.
