The Misty Moon International Film Festival is back again this Halloween, for another year of fantastic indie films and will be held on Saturday the 27th October at London’s ‘The Cinema Museum’, a venue of significant cultural importance within England’s capital city.
We are looking for short films of all genres to be submitted but as it is near Halloween and our judges are made up of actors and actresses from well know horror films we would appreciate a smattering of short horrors as well.
The evening will be hosted by legendary comedy duo Trevor and Simon, best known for BBC1’s Saturday morning alternative comedy shows Going Live! and Live and Kicking.
Misty Moon is honored to produce a gig with one of Britain’s best loved actors Ian Ogilvy. An Evening With Ian Ogilvy will be at The Cinema Museum on Saturday the 7th April 2018.

For a generation of television audiences, Ian Ogilvy is The Saint. Born in 1943, to theatrical parents – and with relatives who were active in the Intelligence Services during World War II – he had a privileged and occasionally odd childhood. After attending RADA in the early 1960‘s, he went on to play leading roles in countless television programs, including iconic series like I, Claudius, and Upstairs Downstairs. Others (and they really are too numerous to mention) include Miss Marple, Tom Dick & Harriet, Murder She Wrote, Murphy Brown, Caroline In The City, Diagnosis Murder and Early Edition. He played leading roles in London’s West End, in such plays as Design For Living, Three Sisters, Happy Family, The Common Pursuit, Rookery Nook, The Waltz Of The Toreadors, The Millionairess, Sleuth, Stage Struck and Run For Your Wife. In Los Angeles, he has appeared in Sleuth, Present Laughter, My Fair Lady and Love! Valour! Compassion! His many films include Death Becomes Her (with Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn), Witchfinder General, Wuthering Heights, Waterloo, The Sorcerers, We Still Kill The Old Way, We Still Steal The Old Way and others. He has a TV Times Award, three Los Angeles Dramalogue Awards, a Los Angeles Times Critics’ Circle Award and was nominated for an Ovation Award. Ian has written two novels – Loose Chippings and The Polkerton Giant . He has also published a play, A Slight Hangover. His latest venture is writing children’s books. Measle And The Wrathmonk, Measle And The Dragodon, Measle And The Mallockee, Measle And The Slitherghoul and Measle And The Doompit have been translated into about 15 languages and are published all over the world. Ian’s autobiography – Once A Saint – was published last year. The Daily Mail called it, “A wickedly entertaining new memoir.”
