I've crossposted that to the scratch_uk community to spread the word. Hope that's okay.

I originally set the community up to build up interest in a old-school UK comiczine, to be entitled Scratch, but Real Life crashed the party last summer and I'm still picking up the pieces. However, I would like folks to use scratch_uk as a noticeboard for events, reviews, whatever. If you know of anyone on LJ who might find it of interest, please spread the word.

I think they're playing my graduation film at that! I was rushing around last week trying to get a digital copy of it.

I can't make it to the event, though.
