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. Ian will be joined on stage by Misty Moon’s MC Linda Regan for an in depth Q&A. After the Q&A Ian will meet the audience and take part in a paid signing. Tickets are extremely limited for this unique and rare event and can be brought in advance from https://billetto.co.uk/e/misty-moon-presents-an-evening-with-ian-ogilvy-tickets-261244
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.”
Today Misty Moon released the updated poster for Robo Films and Misty Moon’s new short horror film Ripper Tour. The poster is based on the newspapers of the time of Jack The Ripper and was designed by the Bloody Brilliant Sam Bessant.
Ripper Tour is the story of an American tourist, Jacqueline Butcher, who decides to take in some of London’s East End history and finds that she herself has a supernatural connection with its dark past.
The film will star American cult favourite Lynn Lowry and feature a cameo from British film, stage and screen legend Dudley Sutton.
We need your help to fund this project, and in return we have some brilliant perks including cameo roles in the film, signed photos, posters and to be a judge at this year’s Misty Moon International Film Festival, this is one project we are sure you will want to be involved in. Please watch our promo video and here is the link to the full campaign
A fabulous review of Misty Moon’s Robin Askwith gig at The Darlington Film Club on Monday the 10th July 2017. The review was in The Northern Echo on Wednesday the 12th July 2017 and was written by Andrew White.
This year’s winner at The Misty Moon International Film Festival is “Cowboy Ben” directed by Jon Shaikh and Scott Rawsthorne. “Cowboy Ben” is a dark comedy – Ben, a man on the edge, meets a childhood friend in a trendy London bar, but with nothing to lose, it soon becomes clear he has a dark vendetta against the people he blames for his failings.
