LINT The Movie: Tonight at Arts Trail

LUCFEST LINT COMPLETE 1000pxThe LUC Festival relentlessly rumbles on, like a runaway train full of ace films. Tonight we will be desperately jumping to safety at the Arts Trail Studios for an exclusive and entirely free screening of LINT The Movie.

Based on his own book by ace author Steve Aylett, LINT tells the tale of cult author and forgotten man of sci-fi, Jeff Lint. The film includes contributions from a whole host of luminaries such as Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Alan Moore and Robin Ince.

Covering such incidents as Lint’s ill-fated, sexually-charged episode of Star Trek, his elaborate theories on the Kennedy assassination and his insanely disturbing kids cartoon Catty and The Major – Lint The Movie is a thoroughly entertaining exploration of this most troubling and enigmatic of figures.

Prior to the feature tonight we will be screening another batch of fantastic underground shorts that were submitted to the LUC short film prize. Topics covered in this evening’s eclectic selection include the nature of memory, magic phone boxes, mysterious forests, whimsical suicide discussions and dangerous cardboard pets. I hope you have all been keeping up with Benn Veasey’s fantastic blog of the shorts programme so far.

Also joining in tonight will be Comics etc with a selection of their wares, come down early for a browse, to grab a drink and grab a seat for another night of LUC action. If you need directions to Arts Trail, check our handy festival map – or the address is 6 Livery Street, Leamington Spa, CV32 4NP.

Festival Spotlight No.4: LINT The Movie

LUCFEST LINT COMPLETE 1000px“He was a good man. He was an intelligent man. He had two arms, two legs, a torso and a head… and who can say more than that?”

LINT The Movie features the likes of Alan Moore, Stewart Lee, Robin Ince and Aylett himself speaking about the author of such classic and ultimately annoying books as I Eat Fog, One Less Bastard and Jelly Result.

For full details check the festival programme – we even have a few items of genuine Lint memorabilia to give away on the night

Lint The Movie added to LUC Festival

Have you read Lint by Steve Aylett? If not you probably should, in fact if I was you, I’d skive work today get hold of a copy. It is the story of cult Sci-Fi author Jeff Lint, author of little-known, endlessly irritating classics such as ‘One Less Bastard’ and ‘I Eat Fog’. There is a fairly shonky review by me knocking around on the internet, in which I gush about how ace it is whilst also somehow managing to involve Coventry City v Scunthorpe.

Anyhow, the book was turned into a film in which the likes of Aylett, Alan Moore, Stewart Lee, Josie Long and even the Vessel out of David Devant & His Spirit Wife offering their thoughts on Lint’s strange life and ferociously puzzling works.

I’m delighted to say that Lint The Movie will be screening at the LUC Festival, exact details to be confirmed, but have a squiz at this trailer in the meantime…
