It’s all about Paddy Considine

paddyconsidineAnd so the 31st Cambridge Film Festival draws to a close, with a fabulous closing night film (THE LOOK – featuring Charlotte Rampling) and not one but TWO surprise films, for which eager audiences snapped up tickets without the faintest clue what they were (few could have been disappointed; they were Soderbergh’s CONTAGION and John Madden’s THE DEBT).

But for me, the final weekend was all about Paddy Considine, visiting with his debut film as director, TYRANNOSAUR on Saturday night. OK, so there are professional reasons why that might be the case – we were handling press and PR, after all – but it was simply a great pleasure to meet the man. A real gentleman, who gave a superb, heartfelt Q&A after the packed screening.

It also provides a good excuse to reproduce Festival photographer Tom Catcheside’s amazing snap of Mr C – for me, the photo of the Festival. If you like what Tom does, take a few moments to peruse his website and photoblog. There are pictures from the whole Festival there, as well as info on how you can get Tom to make you look this good!
