Brit pix cross the Channel

Dinard plays host to film fest

WHAT: The British Film Festival, held Oct. 6-9.

WHERE: The charming French seaside resort of Dinard

WHO: Helmers Gaby Dellal (“On a Clear Day”), Sally Potter (“Yes”), Brian Cook (“Color Me Kubrick”) and Michael Caton-Jones (“Shooting Dogs”); plus producer-director Stephen Woolley (“Stoned”)

‘FATHER’S’ COME FIRST: Top prize, the Golden Hitchcock, was awarded Oct. 8 to “In My Father’s Den,” a Kiwi pic that flew under the Union Jack thanks to its Brit co-producer Dixie Linder.

Producer Stephen Woolley, making his helming debut with “Stoned” — which centers on the last days of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones — said at the pic’s screening: “If I look more nervous than usual, it’s because Nic Roeg is in the audience. A director I greatly admire.” Roeg helmed the seminal 1970 Mick Jagger-starrer “Performance.”
