10:00

I’m not venturing out to Doc/Fest until later today.

I have a few things I need to take care of today and I have a bit of a sore head after the Curzon rooftop drinks with Shooting People and The South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network, Queerama and the opening night party at the City Hall.

I was supposed to watch Ouaga Girls this morning but decided to watch it on Doc/Player from the comfort of home instead but it doesn’t seem to work on iPad or iPhone. I’ll have to try it on my laptop later as I left it in the studio yesterday.

I was in my Gladiator Southerners yesterday which have left me with blisters this morning. Will switch to my Doc Martens Cappers I think.

Meeting up with Steven Corton (aka Bernard) again later and also Miriam Rowe who I met at Doc/Fest last year.

18:00

In the Doc/Fest Exchange with Bernard and met up with Miriam, we're listening to a talk by [Walter Murch](http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004555" target="_blank) which is really good.

18:45

We're out and on our way to get some awesome Chinese food at Noodle Inn Centro, we've met up with Jemma and Anna, friends of Miriam who I also met last year.

21:00

Miriam has gone back to Liverpool, Jemma and Anna have headed off to their hotel and myself and Bernard are off to The Curzon cinema to watch [Tonite Let's All Make Love in London (1967)](http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062379" target="_blank).

Named after an Allen Ginsberg poem, Peter Whitehead's psychedelic “pop concerto" is propelled by such sounds as Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive". It presents meditations on swinging London nightlife – from revolution to sex – by such iconic figures as Mick Jagger, Julie Christie, Michael Caine, Lee Marvin, and includes footage of rioting audiences interrupting a 1966 Rolling Stones concert in the Royal Albert Hall.

22:30

That's it for me today.
