Despite most of Team MovieBar working on a short film of their own this month we have managed to put together another awesome selection of films for Brighton's monthly short film event at the Caroline of Brunswick in March. This time we're going with a teen movie theme which actually fits some of the films we’re screening! (this never happens)
We’ll be screening all kinds of films from music videos to ghost stories and there will also be the usual quiz with prizes.
Here’s the line-up…
Mike Shepherd's ice-cream ad is a really neat example of how to tell a story in less than a minute.
Mike will be coming along to talk about the film
The first of two supernatural films from director Jon Rosling this atmospheric ghost story about a haunted school has shades of J-horror and will keep you guessing right up until its chilling conclusion.
Volkaniko – Buy It Now (or Never)
The end of a consumer-driven society is depicted in this high-energy music video from electronic composer Volkaniko.
Two very different women find common ground when they are trapped in a lift in this emotionally charged drama from director Djonny Chen.
Writer, producer and actor Petroula Kaneti-Dimmer will be coming along to talk about the film.
Chris Thomas’ tale of a young boy learning the consequences of his actions is a perfect of example of effective short film story-telling.
Chris will hopefully be coming along to talk about the film.
Every Angel Trailer
Part of a Brighton Filmmakers Coalition challenge from last year, Tim Pieraccini's trailer does a convincing job at hinting at a much bigger story.
Tim will be coming along to talk about the film.
After You Leave
Simon Kyle's story of a how a young man recovers from the end of a relationship makes great use of some iconic Stoke-on-Trent locations.
Mark Moynihan effectively compresses years of suppressed feelings between work colleagues into two minutes of screen time.
Mark will hopefully be coming along to talk about the film.
Jon Rosling effectively remakes a Hollywood classic in ten minutes with a teenage girl as its disillusioned protagonist.
I may also sneak in some behind the scenes footage from Jenny Ringo and the Cabaret from Hell, if only to prove that we totally made a horror film last month!
