Selected by St Albans Film Festival (again).

Official Selection St Albans Film Festival

I’m delighted to announce that ‘The Toadlickers’ – the music video I directed & produced for 5 times Grammy Award nominated electronic music icon, inventor of the polyphonic ringtone synthesiser, Musical Director of the TED Conference and first Homewood Professor of the Arts at Johns Hopkins University, Thomas Dolby, has been selected by the St Albans International Film Festival.

This is the second time that St Albans International Film Festival has selected one of my music videos. Last year they screened ‘Every Time I See You I Go Wild’ – the video I directed & produced for B.E.F. featuring Kim Wilde.

‘The Toadlickers’ will be shown at a 71 minute screening with the 14 other selected promos. The exact date & time of this screening will be announced on the festival’s web site as soon as their programme is finalised.

St Albans International Film Festival takes place 1st-3rd May 2015 in St Albans and, having attended last year, it’s a festival I highly recommend.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that my ‘Every Time I See You I Go Wild’ B.E.F. Kim Wilde music video has been selected by the St. Albans International Film Festival, comes the news that it has just been selected by the Rincon International Film Festival (RIFF).

RIFF, “the most celebrated film festival in Puerto Rico,” takes place at the resort of Rincon, between 7th & 13th April and includes screenings on the beech front during the day and amongst the palm trees at night. Tempted to go is an understatement.
