MovieBar - 7th March 2011 Line-up...

8pm Monday 7th March 2011 – Film line-up

Last month we screened eight very short films. This month we’re screening three longer films and one epic.

The film quiz will be on films that are too long including a clip from the longest and most awesome sci-fi film ever made…at least one of those statements is true.

Also Rob Speight from out post sound ( will be coming along to talk about the importance of post-production audio.

The line-up…

The Ghoul Lord

James Atkins combines high production values with witty dialogue and likeable characters in this unique fantasy/comedy short.

James will be coming along to talk about the film.

The Ascension Agency

Daniel Birt and Ged Cleugh’s complex and unsettling psychological thriller squeezes all the tension possible from its running time and often resembles a miniature feature in its ambitious scale and scope.

Dan and Ged will be coming along to talk about the film.


Steven Dorrington shows us what the Tooth Fairy might look like as a character in a Ken Loach film in this expertly realised and very funny mockumentary.

Director of Photography Emma Bailey will be coming along to talk about the film.
Charlie Chaplin

Nathan D’Arcy Roberts directs MovieBar regular Nick Bartlett in this quirky comedy about a drug deal that takes a bizarre turn.

Nick will be coming along to talk about the film.
