News ▸ The 25th Mardi Gras Film Festival kicks off in Sydney today - and this year’s line-up is huge! Running for 15 days, it has something for everyone. For tickets and more info, head to www.queerscreen.org.au. ▸ Netflix surprised everyone during the Super Bowl, by announcing the release of the latest ‘Cloverfield’ instalment… and then releasing it at the end of the game. Quality of the film aside, this is (i’m sorry for the pun) game changing, using the franchise to once again redefine the way a film is publicised. So what kind of effect will this unconventional release approach have? ▸ All of us here at SWITCH are just a bunch of massive nerds, really, and that takes a surprising amount of work. In one of our recent episodes, Chris cheated in our recommendations by choosing a book rather than a film, so now it's time for a bunch of nerds to choose their favourite books about films for filmmakers or filmmaking - because why just spend hundreds of hours watching films, when you can spend thousands of hours reading about them?
