In competition — more festival nominations for My Friend the Polish Girl

More good news for My Friend the Polish Girl. It was recently nominated for the Michael Powell award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where it also had its UK premiere. I joined the directors Eva and Mateusz and actors Aneta, Emma and Darren for the festival and great fun was had by all. Sadly my short stay meant I didn’t get to see many films but my highlight was the powerful documentary Island of the Hungry Ghosts.

Following on from Edinburgh, My Friend the Polish Girl has been entered into the international competition of New Horizons Festival, Wroclaw, Poland, which takes place at the end of this month, and now the “Certain Regard’ competition at Gydnia Film Festival in September.

My Friend the Polish Girl premieres in Rotterdam

 

My Friend the Polish Girl in Bright Future Competition
Last week I finished the last bit of music for My Friend the Polish Girl, a first feature film by Ewa Banaszkiewicz and Mateusz Dymek. Tonight it premieres at Rotterdam Film Festival, in the Bright Future Competition. I enjoyed creating an electronic, minimalist score for this film.  Best of luck and sorry I couldn't join you in Rotterdam Ewa and Mateusz!

Last day of the sound mix at the fantastic Twickenham studios last week, and the film is all finished. Here I am with the wonderful Francesco Iannuzzelli (oud) and Omar Saad (viola) at Crypt studios recording the music

I really enjoyed working on this beautiful with director Ashtar Al Khirsan, editor Tracey Granger and sound mixer Doug Woodward. Looking forward to seeing it on the big screen!
