It's the final CineMe Shorts of 2015.  So to celebrate our penultimate event of the year, we've invited CineMe favourites Don't Shoot The Mermaid (, to headline November's short film extravaganza.

For those not familiar with Don't Shoot The Mermaid, they are a London based female sketch trio who write, perform and produce comedy sketches for film.  They comprise of Emma Rasmussen ('The Blonde'), a comedy writer and performer, who works as a video editor by trade.  Heather Darcy ('The Brunette'), a drama school graduate, who has performed in a number of film and theatre productions, with many of the films being screened at international festivals including Cannes and the LA Short Film Festival.  Together with Natasha Velyn Golup ('The Redhead), an actress who has mainly worked in theatre and appeared in the short film Bullocks and the TV pilot Call Girls.

Don't Shoot The Mermaid will be selecting their favourite sketches they have produced and will be screening these on the night.  They will be discussing their work and answering audience questions.

Other short film highlights this month include:-

The stunning multi award winning Dutch animation Junkyard.  A drama about innocence and set in the last seconds before a man dies and where his childhood friendship flashes before his eyes.

Anthony Scott Burns drama Manifold about a small-town sheriff, who investigates a mysterious multiple murder scene, which is bizarrely linked to a young software engineer.

Eusong Lee's tearful graduation animation from CalArts called Will.  A powerful story set around the tragic events of 9/11.

The nature documentary Red Sky on the Black Isle by Li Marley, which examines how in 2014, 22 birds of prey including 16 Red Kites were found dead in one small area of the Black Isle in Scotland.

We will also be joined by local South West filmmakers, who will be screening and introducing their work.  These include Mandi Edwards with her latest documentary short Write To Kill, Elizabeth Mizon with Borders, the comedy Three Wrongs by Ross Graham and the animation Chorizo de Chorizos by Ferriol Tugues.
