Boyhood
Looking ahead: Boyhood, winner of Best Picture (Drama) & Best Director at the Golden Globes 2015

Happy New Year!

  • Boyhood justifiably won Best Picture (Drama) & Director awards at the Golden Globes 2015 last night – see all winners here, commentary by Peter Bradshaw (with Oscar predictions) here (and jokes here). The BAFTA nominations are also out, with The Grand Budapest Hotel out in front (though sadly no noms for Mr. Turner or Selma) and nominees for the Oscars will be announced this Thursday.
  • Our Artists’ Moving Image Network is fully up and running with programmes in place at the four lead venues – FLUX at Barn, Film Lab at The Dukes, kinetics at Kinokulture and ASPECT at The Maltings.
  • The end of January is the deadline for both our One-to-Ones – perfect if 2015 is the year you want to make changes at your venue and need affordable advice on anything from audience development to fundraising – and our Tech Skills scheme for venues in need of bespoke technical support.
