We've decided to put ALT FILM on ice for a while. After two and a half years of film sessions every week, it's time to restructure things. So we'll be off air for a few months. Hopefully to re-emerge in a new guise. Different locations, different frequencies, same name.

I'm glad to see that film has started to take off in all sorts of ways in Cape Town's society, from numerous film festivals to a large number of restaurants/lounges/bars with digital projectors, to the new and very exciting venture by The BlackHeart Gang called "Moving Picture Experiments" (7+ 8 November 2007, 7-10pm, Clifton 4th beach, free entry). Let this continue and grow! The most tragic part of film is that it ends up in a box in a cupboard, only to be forgotten. Chat to us if you want to create your own film festival - it is both more difficult and easier than you might think! Keep the film rolling!

A massive THANK YOU to everyone who has helped along the way, everyone who has supported us in one way or another, everyone in Zula Sound Bar and Coffee Bean, all the film industry stars who are passionate about film, film makers, film viewers... it has been an amazing adventure!

And watch this space... there will be more.
