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]

Live discussion: Why is everyone taking the government to court?

There's a pandemic on – so why are openDemocracy, Foxglove and others challenging the British government's health contracts in court? Join us for the inside story on how we're going to extraordinary lengths to force the government to reveal what they're doing with public money and citizens' health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.

Hear from:

Cori Crider Lawyer Investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that seeks to make the use of technology fair for everyone

Caroline Molloy Editor ourNHS and openDemocracyUK

Chair: Mary Fitzgerald Editor-in-chief, openDemocracy
