Followers of Beg Steal Borrow will be pleased to hear that our film, The Benefit of Doubt, recently enjoyed two screenings in the USA, including one at the Oregon State International Film Festival in Corvallis, Oregon, and one at East Tennessee State University at Johnson City, Tennessee.

Many thanks to all those who helped to arrange these visits, including Mila Zuo, Sebastian Heiduschke, Matthew Holtmeier, Chelsea Wessels and Lange. We are delighted always to reach new audiences – wherever that may be in the world.

Meanwhile, final touches are being put to This is Cinema, which should enjoy one, maybe more, preview screenings in the summer, with editing about the begin on The New Hope 2.

This will take place simultaneous to preparation for a new film, Mantis, which will be shot in the south of France in the summer. Meanwhile, we are also planning towards various films in the autumn and into 2020 – with Beg Steal Borrow regulars and with new blood alike.

William has also just completed the editing of Golden Gate, a short essay-film about the role that the Golden Gate Bridge has played in film history. This will enjoy a premiere at the Film-Philosophy Conference in Brighton in July.

Finally, we are pleased to announce two new posters for Beg Steal Borrow films, both designed by the hugely talented Angela Faillace.

The first is for The Benefit of Doubt:
