CineMe @ The Cube - Short Films & Networking

Where: The Cube Microplex, Dove Street South, Bristol,, BS2 8JD

When: 02 July 2015 8:00pm to 10:30pm

Join CineMe for its debut short film outing at the Cube Microplex (http://www.cubecinema.com).

Bristol writer, film lover and Cube Cinema volunteer Georgina Guthrie (https://twitter.com/FilmspotBlog & http://bristolfilmspot.com/), will be curating an evening of short films.  The event will profile emerging film talent working with the short film medium and will have a strong Bristol flavour of films.  Some of the local filmmakers will be discussing their work and there will be a variety of short films shown from horror, to drama, animation, experimental film and video art.

Among the highlights of the evening are:-

Australian director Jennifer Kent's Monster, which explores a mother battle with her son's fear of a monster lurking in the closet and was made into the feature film The Babadook.

The award winning animation Sausage (Robert Grieves), about two artisan stallholders who are invaded by a devious fast-food vendor and the ferocious turf war that follows.

Dustin Guy Defa's acclaimed comedy drama Person to Person, which has been screened at film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, Berlin, AFI and was acquired by the New Yorker, which recently began a series of shorts called The New Yorker Shorts.  Person to Person is a subtle, moving and expertly crafted story about Benny, a record store owner who, the morning after housing a party, finds a pretty young woman sleeping on his floor.  A woman, whom he's never met, then refuses to leave.

The experimental animation Tallest Heights inspired by the drawn-on-film pieces of Norman Mclaren, Len Lye and Man Ray, and made from a combination of ink, paint, bleach and scratching into different film sizes.

Laura Aish's (De)Constructions that explores the performance of film, as well as the transference of memory and emotions though the moving image medium.

Plus there are local films from Piski Films, Naren Wilks, Charlie Blackfield, Molly Gibney and Richard Broomhill.
