For the first time in 2018 we will see the Newcastle International Film Festival take place at many venues around Newcastle and Gateshead. Something which I find very exciting for the North East considering we get missed out for so many things.
The NIFF will be opened with a special screening of Get Carter along with a Q&A with the director and a VIP afterparty. What better film to open a film festival in Newcastle?
Dates: Thursday 29th March – Sunday 1st April 2018
This falls over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend which should be a great opportunity to get many people to attend!
Into the eighth month of the year now so much more than half way though, I am actually thinking that 2017 isn’t the greatest year for film in all honesty.
The number of films I went to see was 8 and this then cost £2.23 per film as the Unlimited Card at Cineworld is £17.90 per month.

I recently created a new logo for Let’s Go To The Movies which you can see below. I then decided to set up a campaign on Teespring which allows you to sell different products. I thought that was the perfect chance to use the logo and create some merchandise that people could buy!
. . . I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.
That’s right everyone I am off to New York City for a few days.
Into the fifth month of 2017 and I have managed to increase the number of films I got to see at the cinema back up to 10 this month, which actually includes two National Theatre Live productions of plays direct from the West End.
Cineworld Unlimited Card is £17.90 per month and I saw 8 films that qualified for the month which meant £2.23 per film. I had to pay for the Theatre productions £8.10 each, without an Unlimited card this is £16.99.
I saw the following films in May:
1st – Lady Macbeth – Review
2nd – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Review
7th – Unlocked – Review
9th – A Dog’s Purpose – Review
