It's been another big year in premieres, and with a combination of thanks given to Australia, Austria and the United Kingdom and the various convoluted and interconnected definitions of "residency", "permanent residency", "where I happen to live", "citizenship", "freedom of movement", and "European Union" I and they currently work within ... which should remain in place for another 11 months at time of writing, I might have a few more premieres in me next year (cross fingers). But for now, here's the 2017 that was (note : each image is also a link to its journal) - I count 71 events photographed.
JANUARY : No premieres - I arrived back from holiday too late!
FEBRUARY : Baftas month!
MARCH : Only two premieres!
APRIL : Two premieres in Berlin and this year's "Biggest" movie?!
MAY : Well, at least there's some quantity in lieu of quality?
JUNE : Documentaries, Royals, Booksignings, Cancellations and Neatness... all in one month!
JULY : Only three events, but two were quite big
AUGUST featured the smallest premiere crowd I've been a part of.
SEPTEMBER : Some size, some fashion... and some Latvia.
OCTOBER: I typically claim that London has about sixty premieres a year, which probably stretches out to about 70 or so events. But the truth is, it's approximately two weeks each year at BFI London Film Festival that contributes almost 1/5th of ALL the events I photograph in any given year!
NOVEMBER: Time to relax with some seriously big and/or quirky premieres:
DECEMBER: The year may have started slow but it ended VERY big...
