La Belle Noise premiere at Fest Film Festival
We are very excited to announce that our experimental documentary, La Belle Noise, will have its world premiere at the Fest Film Festival in Espinho, Portugal, on 30 June 2019.
Shot at the Fest Film Festival itself in 2018, La Belle Noise stars Colin Morgan as himself and as a sleaze ball film producer who is at the seaside town of Espinho in order to wreak havoc on the minds of hopeful filmmakers.
Meanwhile, Beg Steal Borrow legend Dennis Chua turns up at Cthulhu, the ancient one from Lovecraftian mythology, who also is in turn to have fun.
Various actors and other filmmakers reflect upon their desire to be involved in film, as well as their relationship with love – and as the film blurs the distinction between fiction and documentary, so it blurs the distinction between signal and noise, suggesting that there is beauty to be found in those aspects of cinema that typically we discard or overlook.
The screening takes place at midnight on 30 June (as it transitions into 1 July) at the Casino. It follows right after Alex Ross Perry’s Her Smell, which is the festival’s closing film.
These screenings are accompanied by a preview screening of
This is Cinema at the Birkbeck Institute of the Moving Image on Saturday 13 July – ahead of what we hope to be a festival run for that film.
This will take place just ahead of the shooting of Mantis, a new Beg Steal Borrow production that will be shot in Collioure, France, in mid-July – and about which we hope to announce more later.
And then there is in August the shooting of Mila Zuo’s short film, Kin, co-written by William Brown, and which stars Frank Mosley, with principle photography taking place in August.
Finally, look out for The New Hope 2, which we hope to complete some time in the autumn!
