openDemocracy blogs the London Film Festival 2005

27 October 2005

Welcome to openDemocracy’s London Film Festival 2005 blog. openDemocracy has been reviewing films from the festival for the last three years. This year the selection of films on show has been so expansive that we have set up a special blog to cover it. With over 180 films from nine different strands to watch we have sent out openDemocracy staff , writers and friends to report back to us what they thought.

See also Colin MacCabe’s history of the festival for an introduction to the philosophy behind it.

If you have been to a festival film and would like to blog your thoughts please email Charlie Devereux at [email protected]

Trade deals, Brexit and disaster capitalism

If you're tired of Brexit, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Is the UK joining Trumpland? Does this explain Boris Johnson's kamikaze EU negotiating strategy? And could beating this deal begin a challenge to the iniquities of the global economy?

Join us for a free live discussion at 5pm UK time, 24 September
