CineMe returns with its popular monthly short film event, which showcases some of the most interesting work being made by local, national and international talent.  Our events showcase new independent short films, offering a night out that differes to the main cinema chains, where people can watch film in a social setting.

This month CineMe are screening 8 short films.  The headline film is the comedy short Tea for Two, directed by Mark Brennan of Pork Chop Films, who will be taking part in a Q&A after the screening.  Tea for Two stars John Challis (Only Fools and Horses and The Green Green Grass) and Amanda Barrie (Coronation Street and Bad Girls), as a quirky old couple serving behind the counter of an idyllic but quiet British village tea shop.  When some customers do finally arrive, they soon discover it's more than a pot of tea and a slice of cake being dished up by their peculiar hosts.

Other highlights this month include James M. Johnston's Melville.  A drama following lead character Marcus, who is dealing with some serious problems, but can't seem to talk to anyone about it.  The sexy, coming of age tale Blood Pulls a Gun by acclaimed director Ben Briand, about a teenage girl who gets a keyhole look into a dangerous and mysterious world when a tattooed stranger cheeks into a roadside motel.  Film festival favourite But Milk is Important, which uses stop-motion animation to create a story that centres around a troubled character, living with mental illness.  The dark comedy The Fly, about a getaway driver waiting outside a bank robbery and he has three nerve shredding minutes to get through before his crew returns.  Actor Oliver Parks directorial debut Vicious.  A Hitchcock influenced horror centring around Lydia, whose sister Kate died in mysterious circumstances.  When she returns home one evening, she finds the front door is unlocked and a series of strange occurences suggests she is not alone.  Plus, there's two other local films from Ferriol Tugues with the charming animation Musicidio and Keith Wilhelm Kopp with the horror Paralysis.
