Projectile: A festival of Anarchist Film and Thought

Hope to see y'all up in Newcastle:

Projectile: A Festival of Anarchist Film and Thought , Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, 11-13th February, 2005

Projectile will be a major event taking place at the Side Cinema in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne over the weekend of 11-13th February this year. It combines 3 days of films and discussion, a cabaret night and a mini-conference.

For details of Projectile, go to http://www.projectile.org.uk/ - but be patient as we are still in the process of posting final details.

Projectile begins on Friday 11th February with a mini-conference held at the nearby University of Sunderland (in conjunction with the Anarchists in Academia network). After that the Festival proper starts at 7 p.m. on the same day (at the Side in Newcastle) as Stuart Christie introduces his film Red Years, Black Years: the Spanish Civil War. Other films (there are 12 overall) include the World Premiere of Ten Days that Shook the World (footage of the 1994 Anarchist Gathering in London) and the English Premiere of Aurora De Esperanza (Dawn of Hope) – a CNT film made at the height of the Spanish Anarchist Revolution. We also have Emma: An Exceedingly Dangerous Woman, plus a Situationist Kung Fu movie!

As well as Stuart Christie, other speakers include Stewart Home, Mark Barnsley and Dave Douglass. There are also workshops on direct action and workers self management, plus a Cabaret Night at the Bridge Hotel in central Newcastle.

Accommodation is available for those travelling from outside the region (see the website).

Looking forward to this a lot - but why Stewart Home?

Well.. probably the bulk of the festival could be loosely defined as traditional or social anarchism - lots of films and talks on Spain, Emma Goldman, workers self organisation etc. As wellas this we decided to have a bit of variety - and to cover a variety of @ist themes and positions. thus Stewart Home.

Err - the same Stewart Home who hates Anarchists, and Anarchism, and smears anarchists as fascists!

For fucks sake, with friends like him................

I'll be coming to this, hopefully with some other AFers and London anarchists. Well done for putting it on.
