Where: The Tobacco Factory Bar, Raleigh Road, Bedminster, Bristol,, BS3 1TF

When: 29 July 2014 8:00pm to 10:30pm

It's that time of the month again. Summer has arrived and World Cup fever has finally ended!

CineMe Shorts is back and continues to showcase quality short film work from all over the globe. We also promote Bristol filmmaking talent, providing creatives with networking opportunities and offering people an alternative film program.

For July's CineMe Shorts we will be screening 12 shorts. The main highlights include Shunk Productions Porphyrophobia, where a rare celestial event has an extraoridinary impact on a stir crazy mother and her perculiar, adult son. The film will be followed by a Q&A with writer/producer Paul Holbrook and director Sam Dawe, who will discuss how the idea for the film came about and how finances were raised to complete the project.

Other films being shown include the amusing documentary Born To Be Mild, which delves into the peculiar world of dull men's club. Lee Matthews Forever England about Folk artist Sam Lee and his tour of rural England, marking the centenary of the First World War. Conor Byrne's Foureyes about a 10 year-old boy thrust into the tumultuous world of puberty when he gets a pair of eyeglasses. The animation Johnny Express, created by Alfred Image Works and set in 2150, where Johnny, a lazy space delivery man must deliver a package on a planet he does not fully understand. The stunning animated music video In the Middle of the Nite by RipTide and made by Crooked Line.

We will also be showing films from Bristol filmmakers, who will be on hand to talk about their work. Films include Matthew Freeth's Silent Phantom made for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge. Isaac McCardle's documentary Hearing In the Bardo. Together with Catalogue Wars by Eddie Brown and Benjamin Harding.
