Projectile, May 2007, in Newcastle

Projectile 2007 - the third annual festival of anarchist film and culture will take place 18 - 20th May, at the Star and Shadow cinema, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Now that the star and Shadow is up and running, Projectile 2007 will have the full cinema experience (with separate blacked out cinema + bar and meeting room).

On the film side, we are still tracking down a couple of rare gems. However we’ll definitely be showing:

This Revolution [The Black Bloc in action at the Republican Convention film]
Soma: an anarchist therapy
Sacco and Vanzetti
“i” [a film about Indymedia Argentina]
The Anarchists [Koreans Anarchists, in suits!]
Antonio Negri: a revolt that never ends
There is No Authority but Yourself [The Crass film]
Salt of the Earth [the struggle of Mexican-American miners]

Talks and Workshops include:

Ben Franks – workshop around his book Rebel Alliances
Anarcho-Feminism Workshop
Jamie Heckert – Why its So Hard to Love?
Ian Bone – book reading and talk
Penny Rimbaud – talk accompanying the Crass film
Mitzi Watz – anarchism and therapy
Dave Douglas – talk on the miners strike(s), accompanying the film ‘Where do I Stand?’
Indymedia workshop
Second Life – Streaming of the festival

and we’ll be running a Gig/Cabaret on the Saturday night with the
Sex Patels, the Bongaleros and plenty of others

As usual, accommodation will be available for those travelling to Newcastle
