When is Global Movie Day?
Established by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Global Movie Day takes place every year on the second Saturday of February every year. This annual celebration aims to give film fans around the world a national day to celebrate their favorite features. This year, Global Movie Day takes place on Saturday 12 February.
Although we enjoy films every day of the year, we thought we’d highlight some of our TFS MD Cara Sheppard‘s top picks on Global Movie Day!
What’s your guilty watch at the moment?
Probably latest season of Ozark or After Life. And I couldn’t possibly confirm or deny if I binge watched all of ‘Emily in Paris’ in 2 days over Christmas!
What do you love most about movies?
The escapism and it takes you to another place. I think that’s something we’ve all needed at times in the past couple of years!
“What’s your favourite scary movie”?
Cape Fear – its brilliant! Both the original and the remake are very well done.
If you had to pick, would you go for a silent, a black and white or a 3D film?
Probably black and white. I used to love old B&W Hollywood Movies – the ‘Maltese Falcon’, ‘Casablanca’, ‘Brief Encounter’ – it was watching those that had a certain old Hollywood glamour to them that made me want to start working in the film industry.
If you could only choose one, what would be one of your favourite films TFS worked on?
The Italian Job – Michael Caine at his finest!
What are you planning to watch on #GlobalMovieDay?
Probably something we have worked on more recently that I haven’t had time to watch yet, like Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Belfast’ or ‘Last Night in Soho’ which are both up for Oscar and Bafta nominations shortly. Very excited to see both of those!
