When: 26 January 2016 8:00pm to 11:00pm

CineMe returns for 2016 with its monthly curated short film nights.  This month CineMe will be screening eight short films including a mixture of locally made shorts as well as those produced nationally and internationally.  There's the opportunity to meet some of the filmmakers behind those films and to socialise and network with other guests when the screenings have finished.

This months film highlights include:-

Robbie Richmond's Danny Boy.  The story of an autistic young man at odds with the world and a family struggling to cope with the financial and caring pressures needed to take care of their son.

Phoebe Holman's documentary Death Cafe.  A film that looks at Hypnotherapist Emma, who treats people for death anxiety as the Death Cafe facilitator, where she attempts to break the stigma of death and its industry.

Anthony O'Callaghan and John Faria's The Levels.  A contemporary crime drama and a tale of love and redemption set against the haunting landscape of the Somerset Levels.  The film also stars local actors Oliver Park, Kate Davies, Steve Speak and Tim Henley.

The American dark comedy Invaders by Jason Kupfer.  This comedy is about a pair of home invaders who consider the potential character choices just prior to their planned invasion.

The animation Fresh Cut Grass from Dublin based studio Boulder Media.  A little dog visits the big city in search of his sister in this charming animation with a bitter twist.

The sci-fi short GLOW, which won the 2014 Panavision Future Filmmaker award.  When a suspicious threesome check-in to a desert motel, a series of strange events lead owner Vern into a dangerous confrontation with the trio.

There's also Max Clendaniel's Stranger Side, which was made for the 60 Hour Film Challenge as part of the Colchester Film Festival.  Together with Stephanie Wessell's Link House about a woman's mental health crisis house in Bristol, run by Missing Link.

The screenings take place in the 'Green Room' in the main Cafe Bar from 8pm onwards.  After CineMe you are more than welcome to join us in the bar for conversation about the films and a couple of drinks.
