We’ve just sent off to the printers the brand new issue of Film Stories magazine – the 19th! It was delayed a little due to current matters (!), but it’s full steam ahead now and we’ve got a jam-packed issue to tell you about.

We’ll start with the cover, showcasing for the 19th time running a British-linked film. In this case, the wonderful Saint Maud, the wonderful Morfydd Clark…
