Edinburgh festival 2000

Social realist film, Human Resources

Probably the most quoted phrase at the Edinburgh film festival last week was Film Council chief executive John Woodward's declaration that the council would not be making "social realist art films".

Edinburgh festival: Comedy

The Perrier Award committee is comedy's version of the football referee. Whichever shortlist of nominees they decide upon is roundly condemned every year as wrong - boring, safe, predictable, biased, corrupt, racist, sexist, homophobic, elitist, cowardly... As usual, the attacks are unfair; people are getting upset by who is not on the shortlist, rather than who is. Which, if nothing else, proves the comedy talent pool at the Fringe is not quite as shallow or as narrow as everyone says it is.
