I saw 9 films in 10 days and feel that I did justice to the Film Festival for the first time. I missed one day - the day after the election when I was rather weary after staying up until 3.45am.

top 5 portrait photography tips
Want to take better portraits? Here are some top tips from photographer Jon Legge, who runs photography courses here at QUAD.

Wood Job! is a Japanese film that was screened at QUAD last week and was followed by a Q&A from director Shinobu Yaguchi. With so much good feeling around the film and so many budding film makers in the group, this really was a chance Youth Review could not afford to miss. 
 

Youth Review: Into the Woods

By Collective Review by QUAD Youth Review on Monday 26th January

Into the Woods is the new piece of musical magic from the magic factory that is Disney. Based on the musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, the film has garnered almost universal praise and so Youth Review thought it was only right that we check it out for ourselves.
