Just a quick update to let you know what’s going on with FilmBath in these interesting times.
We cancelled our March FilmClub screening of In Safe Hands – which of course was a shame but we felt that it would have been socially irresponsible to all sit together in a confined space for 100 minutes, even back then, nine days ago.
Lots of our wonderful FilmClub members very generously donated the price of their ticket to FilmBath – which is HUGELY appreciated as I’m not quite sure how we are going to weather this storm, though I am sure that we will.
We will wait and see what happens but I think it’s safe to say that at the very least April’s FilmClub screening will be cancelled too.
Holly moved out of the FilmBath office last Tuesday and her children’s school sent them home from Wednesday – which means that she is now mostly supervising homeschooling, daily exercise and of course a lot more cooking, cleaning and laundry.
In between which she is still working on the 2020 film festival on 5 – 15 November. Of course we have no idea where we’ll be in November, but we’re optimistic that we will be with you, in a cinema, watching great movies.
