Waay Aye Man!!  We're in Newcastle! We were welcomed to the fabulous, glamourous Tyneside Cinema by Jonny Tull. We had a coffee in the bar before setting up and running our film screenings.  The projection quality was escellent and we had a great audience on the Friday.  We talked about if we come back, how we might work with the film-makers in the region.

This was the LAST EVER screening of films from Oska Bright 2011! It's been great but we are really looking forward to bringing the new work to audiences on tour.  

The drama just as we were leaving was that all our bags were locked in a cupboard, and no-one could open it!  We waited as long as we could but we had to go in the end.  As we write this blog in the buffet car, we wish you all a great summer and see you at the festival on the 17th 18th and 19th of November this year!
