What role have film festivals played in your life so far? Why are they necessary? How do you get the most out of them?
When I first started out I completely underestimated the importance of film festivals. Industry people do come along and see your work. To get the most out of them you need to make sure you’ve picked the right festival to launch your film. I’m delighted we got into Glasgow Film Festival. They’ve treated us brilliantly and offered a platform we wouldn’t have got elsewhere.
Do you believe filmmakers have any responsibility to culture? Do you feel that being a creative person requires that you give back or tell a particular story or not do something else?
I wanted Super November to reflect on where we are now – it’s crazy how it seemed so far-fetched when we were writing it. After our first section of filming Brexit happened. After the second, Trump elected. Travel bans became real in the states, something that happens in our film, which at the time felt like science fiction.
Super November is showing at the GFT on 3rd and 4th November, find out more or buy tickets here.
