It's Couch Conversation time at the Cape Town International Film Market & Festival ladies and gentlemen, so come lend your ears as award winning filmmaker Uga Carlini breaks bread, barriers and bulltwang down with her guests of honour who are doing it for themselves - one movie at a time.
Thursday the 11th of October from 16h00 - 17h00 at the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, Cnr Loop & Pepper St, Cape Town UK born Himesh Kar, will share how he went from lounging with Quentin Tarantino on his couch in LA, talking about 'Jackie Brown', to green-lighting Oscar winner 'Man on Wire' while working at the then UK Film Council. Turns out, that even in the UK, prejudice and stereotyping were at the order of the day for him at first but that this was also what propelled Himesh to reach for the stars (and pocket a few) which is exactly what he has been doing since.
On Friday the 12th of October from 16h00 - 17h00, Tony Caradonna will be the other brave soul to take a seat on THE COUCH at Cape Town Comedy Club (The Pumphouse, V And A Waterfront, Dock Rd, Cape Town), so we can find out what are in the foundations, from childhood through to adulthood, that propels a physicist, cryptograph, blockchain early adopter, to not only make the world's first ever fully funded crypto currency movie The Pitts Family Circus, for Ethereum Movie Venture but to keep making movies that matter, outside of the box of traditional funding models. What is that kept Toni going, believing, that if you build it, they will come - as they certainly did.
