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]

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
