Whilst I am really looking forward to writing for Cohorte about films I have issues with most of the words used to describe those of us who spend as much of our spare waking time as possible watching them. Cinephile sounds slightly dodgy, cineaste pretentious and moviegoer doesn’t bear thinking about. The worst of all has got to be ‘film buff’. It brings to mind (or to mine anyway) images of 1950s suburbia; leatherette sofas, gin and French and blokes in blazers wearing cravats. So let’s just say that I love anything to do with the art of Film, how they’re made and the impact they have on the audience. No other art form has the influence on the lives of ordinary people in quite the same way that film does. You don’t have to have any special knowledge to watch a film, it’s still reasonably accessible to most people and its main players, if not its crafts people, are recognizable to everybody.
In my day job I work with teenagers. They all think life is a film set anyway so it’s home from home really.
