So what kind of evening was the NDH Xmas party, you ask...?
Well, as expected, it was a fabulous & magical evening of stars, celebrities, cocktails and dreams...the rich and famous mingled with the great and good of the film community over canapés as we congratulated ourselves again and again over the amazing work we produced in the year just gone...yes, we can make it, just don't stop believin'...etc...
Seriously tho, thank you, thank you, thank you to our lovely crowd, and especially to the filmmakers who came down and shared their work - the level of films was outstanding...Chris Blaine, Marc Munden, Isabelle Sieb, Prano Bailey-Bond, Mark J. Blackman & Rob Savage, Krent Able, Roxy Holman and to our corking crew - Chris, Roxy, Sunny, Richie & Steve/Krent (Simpson...)

The Last Man on the Moon theatrical release 8th April
A message from Mark Craig, who's fantastic doc The Last Man on the Moon is out on Friday 8th April 2016:
"To my friends and colleagues at NDH... All of us take big journeys with our film projects, and this one has been an arduous 10 year one for me. The Last Man on the Moon tells the story of Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan, an old man looking back on a remarkable time in his life, and wrestling with a past that refuses to let him go. No other moonwalker has given such personal access before, or shared so much.
Our UK theatrical release is on 8th April. There's a Special Event screening + live by satellite Q&A on Monday 11th (in person at Curzon Soho). I hope you get a chance to see it somewhere near you.
Cheers, and see you at NDH soon." http://thelastmanonthemoon.com/screenings
This is awesome - Corin was our last guest at NDH 10, and his film The Hallow is out on DVD today,
