    I need to double check what I want to see, although Battle Royale in the cinema sounds pretty damn tempting.

    Nope, that screening is not part of the festival proper.

    I suppose a break for food is too much to ask....

    That will depend entirely on whether the film we're shooting for gets the green light or not! I will confess I'm not feeling hopeful about it at the moment, sadly.

    Pfft, lightweight :D

    I shall cross everything. If the hopeful film doesn't happen, is this going to stay a gap?

    Nope, there will definitely be a film there, the only question is which one! We have a back-up in place if our first choice does indeed fall through.

    As if we're going to let you folk eat during SLA this year...

    Any idea how it'll work with folks who've already bought tickets (what with the discount scheme and all)?

    Towing the official line I see, after years of complaining about exactly that ;)

    Honestly, I suspect people will have to contact the Filmhouse to see what arrangements they can make - we were hoping to have everything 100% locked down before tickets went on sale but for a few reasons that's proved impossible in this case.

    Having had a hand in scheduling myself this year, I have a new-found understanding of the headaches and logistics of SLA, and the simple lack of room in the programme for significant breaks for anyone going to every film is one of them!

    I think I am doing the same as Wierdo. Managed to get enough overtime to get Friday off, and on top of that. Got train fares for £32 return,

    I have asked for the floor plans and bed arrangements as the website is a bit... crap.

    When I have it, will post up here. Give some options and bed/room allocations to people for initial discussion.

    Proposed Sleeping Arrangements.

    Let me know what you think.

    Idea behind the two apartments is that, if someone does want to sleep early, we have another lounge to hang out in. Could be very useful given what time Battle Royale finishes!



    Apartment 1

    Bedroom 1 - w b/room Double Bed Rob M

    Bedroom 2 - w b/room Single Bed Seb

    Single Bed Carl T

    Lounge Single Sofabed Matt C

    Single Sofabed Elliot



    Apartment 2

    Bedroom 1 - w b/room Double Bed Martin

    Bedroom 2 - w b/room Single Bed Cell

    Single Bed Paul T

    Lounge Single Sofabed Dan B

    Single Sofabed Empty

    Sounds good from my point of view.

    Oh, yeah, I was talking to Robert about this over the weekend, but for the benefit of those in here who don't follow us all on Twitter, what time are we likely to get into the place?

    I am going to try and get the keys for 1pm. The estate agent is just around the corner from the flat. Whether we can get access to both, or just one apartment is TBC at this stage as one of the apartments is booked the day before we arrive. At the very least, I have been gaurenteed that we can put luggage somewhere and decamp decently.

    Arrangements look good to me. If we get the keys for 1pm gives us plenty of time to get things sorted before the Eureka Seven screening at 3. I'll be in town in the morning at some point. Probably get in around 11 or 12 since I'm an hour away by train from Glasgow
