The Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams

Tilda Swinton is starting a film festival after my own heart. She says it will have:

" red carpets, no ranks of paparazzi and no designer evening dresses. Entry to the films will cost you £3 or a tray of home-baked cakes; and the audience will sit on beanbags."

The fest is called "The Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams" and will be a mashup of old and new movies, featuring a lot of "what you won't expect ... we will show a Björk video before All About Eve, for example. It's very irrational."

Organizers expect a mountain of fairy cakes.
