As a festival, we will always be deeply saddened to lose a colleague and friend.

“Pink Slime, which opened in New York in 1974 and later went on to be adapted for the big screen, was produced by James H Anderson and starring a young black woman as the titular pink slime who terrorises subway passengers.
Its filmography includes the likes of A Clockwork Orange, The Shawshank Redemption, The Manchurian Candidate and The Passion of the Christ, among others.
The film was set in New Orleans in 1974, but was shot in London, and is about a woman named Violet who is caught in the middle of the Pink Slime terror.”
Pink Slime was an extraordinary film, and one that influenced the way many people in our industry see cinema today,” New York Cinema Club president James Hine said in a statement.”
James H. worked with some of the most gifted filmmakers in the business, and we will miss him terribly.
“He continued: “James H was an incredibly gifted cinematographic artist who was a huge part of the creation of Pink Slip, and he left a huge mark on the film.
