Really excited to be going to Moscow!! UK Trade & Industry have agreed to cover travel expenses (potential export sales development) and the accommodation is covered by the festival organisers and Russian Ministry of Culture. The POW will be screened on Thursday 26th April as part of the films/features competition within the 5 day film festival.
Leaving Carnforth station at noon… then Manchester… Heathrow… arrive Moscow 5:30am local time. Carnforth station was of course the key location used in filming The POW!
For years I wanted to go to Moscow. In the early 90’s I set off to hitch-hike there with a 35mm SLR and tape recorder; I ended up having adventures and making friends in Poland and later Estonia but never made it any further. Eastern europe always enticed me… something to do with growing up during the Cold War I guess.
