MovieBar October 2012 - Postscript...

A slight technical hitch with one of the films and a missing filmmaker made October's MovieBar the shortest event we've ever run, but it was still an awesome night! Here's how it went down...

Tattooing & Therapy

We kicked off with two fantastic sketches from director Cara Harvey...

You can keep up to date with Cara's work by subscribing to her YouTube channel.

Unfortunately Daya Dodds' film Becky was the one we couldn't screen due to DVD issues, but it has been rescheduled for December. Speaking of which, if you'd like to be notified about upcoming events either sign up to our mailing list on the right of this page or join our Facebook group. Or do both!


Then we screened this avant-garde animation about a sleepless night from filmmakers Emily Howells and Anne Wilkins.

You can find out more about Emily & Anne and their work on their blog.


This was followed by a a stunning CGI animation from Peter Butler...

You can find out more about the film at Peter's website.

Death of Phonebook

...and a surreal short about killing a phonebook from Tim Grabham.

There are more films from Tim on his website and we'll be showing another of his films next month.

The Magic Swirling Ship

Next was a short film from Carlos Boellinger...

You can see more of Carlos' work on his website and check out his band The Badje who also did the music for the film.


The penultimate film of the night was the atmospheric and Cronenberg-esque REP...

Director and one woman film crew Kate Lloyd came along to talk about film and described how she achieved its unique visual style.


We ended the night with the latest trailer for Warrioress...

Director Ross Boyask talked about how the film was picked up for distribution and gave some advice on the kind of films distributors and sales agents are looking for right now (basically, don't make dramas or comedies and you'll be fine).

You can find out more about the film here.

Next month it's Halloween MovieBar!!! Well the first Monday of the month is on November 5th so technically it's Bonfire Night, but we're still calling it Halloween MovieBar so we can show horror films all night. Last year's horror-themed event was one of our best nights of the year and we're planning on making this one even better. 

So if you're anywhere near Brighton come along to the Caroline of Brunswick on the 5th of November for an evening of the most terrifying short films you are ever likely to see...
