The International Fairy-Tale Filmography

Hi there,

Sorry I haven’t posted for a while – I was down with a nasty bout of the flu, and then I had a friend to stay (we visited the Witches and Wicked Bodies exhibition at the British Museum – see my earlier post – it runs to the 11th January so there’s still time to catch some wonderful, bizarre and striking artworks by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Aubrey Beardsley, and Henry Fuseli, on subjects including St Anthony being seriously harassed, devils emitting smoke from their bottoms, and some very suggestive snakes; we also went along to the Terror and Wonder: the Gothic Imagination exhibition at the British Library, which I also highly recommend – it runs to the 20th January).

Hoping to post something about Christmas soon, if I have time amidst all the other preparations, but in the meantime, I thought you might be interested to know about this: it’s the new, open access International Fairy-Tale Filmography, set up by the University of Winnipeg. Users are invited to contribute – it’s a really great project.
