Meet the filmmakers
After the screenings there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers. Moderated by Neil Young.
There will also be a chance for the audience to ask questions.
Neil Young reviews new films regularly for The Hollywood Reporter and has been a frequent contributor to Sight & Sound, both print and online since 2010. His other international outlets include MUBI Notebook, KINO! (Ljubljana) and Tribune magazine.
Based in Sunderland and Vienna, he spends most of the year on the global film-festival circuit — he routinely attends more than 20 such events each year. He now works in a consultation/programming/moderation capacity for half a dozen festivals across Europe including the Viennale, and was the Director of the Bradford International Film Festival at the National Media Museum from 2011-2015.
He has lectured at (among others) the Austrian Filmmuseum, the Riga International Film Festival and last year’s conferences on Alexei Balabanov in Moscow and St Petersburg. A member of the international film critics’ organisation Fipresci, he has served on more than two dozen festival juries, including Cannes’ Semaine de la Critique. His short film Vilniu Detroit premiered at the Vilnius International Film Festival 2016.
