The programme for the Belfast Film Festival launched this week. The line-up includes A Tribute to Charles Bukowski, with a screening of the rare film 'Crazy Love'. The Pen Points Press poets will also be reading some of their favourite Buk poems and work inspired and influenced by him.
Finally, here's a photo of the readers and musicians from the recent The Squat Pen reading at No Alibis bookstore last week, with Ross Thompson, Colin Dardis and others. Thanks to Ray Givans and Paul Jeffcutt for another fine blend of voices.
