Widescreen Weekend 2000 Review
By the weekend delegates
Reading through a copy of the Yorkshire Post Supplement for The Bradford Film Festival, confirms that this is an event of international significance throughout the film world, and a great accomplishment for all those involved in what must surely be an exercise of enormous complexity. Securing sponsors of such integrity, and that are willing and confident to support so worthwhile a project, surely, is initially a challenge and ultimately a triumph.
Widescreen Weekend 2000
By Thomas Hauerslev
I thought the Bradford Wide Screen Weekend 2000 was terrific. How wonderful to see the movies one made for the cinema instead of all the little multiplex houses, video or cable. As I looked at many of the scenes in “Battle of the Bulge” the thought passed through my mind - how the hell did we set up that scene with all its tanks and action?!
