Hi all. I’m in the process of organising a Spaghetti Westerns festival through my university, to run in Luton from 11th-13th April 2013. Firstly, I’d like to tell you all about it, in case you fancy coming along. The line-up has still to be agreed, but I’ll post more details when we have them.
Secondly, I’m posting to ask advice on the name of the festival. I want it to become an annual event, with a changing remit each year (so this year Westerns, next gialli, or poliziotteschi etc). With this in mind, the “brand” name that leapt out was “Spaghetti Cinema”, but this is of course the title of a much-loved fanzine run by (I think) William Connolly. I don’t want to tread on any toes by using this title, so thought this would be a good place to turn for advice. Does William post on here? Do you think he’d object to the festival being called this? I personally intend it as a tribute, but copyright lawyers may differ.
