TAKE ONE contributors were again active on community and local radio in the UK. Two of our regular partners – Cinetopia Edinburgh and the Cambridge show Bums on Seats – have new podcasts out covering the latest releases and hot topics, and critic Elle Haywood made a short appearance on The Cinematologists podcast.
Cinetopia Edinburgh has its second show on EH-FM with TAKE ONE editor Jim Ross continuing on the regular team with Cinetopia co-founders Amanda Rogers and Anni Asikainen. Cinetopia is a volunteer-led film society and community group established in 2018, and you can read more about their first year here. They discuss the Oscar results, review IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, Jim interviews Gabrielle Brady (director of ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS), also review CAPERNAUM, Amanda interviews Shona Thomson about A Kind of Seeing, and give their highlights of Berlinale and Glasgow Film Festival.
At Berlinale, Elle Haywood attended and reviewed a number of films for TAKE ONE and interviewed filmmaker Mark Jenkin. She appeared on The Cinematologists podcast to talk about her experiences at the festival with Dr Neil Fox.
Over at Cambridge 105FM on Bums on Seats (founded by Toby Miller), Yozzie Osman is joined by reviewers Dave Riley, Alistair Ryder and Lorcan O’Neil. They also discuss CAPERNAUM, in addition to THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING and A PRIVATE WAR. In their first show of the month, Ashley Capaldi discussed IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK and CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME with reviewers Emma Marchant, Dave Riley, Marc Beyler and Rowan Lamb.
