It's the last Tuesday of the month again.  Meaning another CineMe Shorts at our home, The Tobacco Factory Cafe Bar in Bedminster, Bristol.

Each month CineMe screen quality short films profiling filmmakers working with the short film medium and producing animations, documentaries and drama.  CineMe Shorts showcases work made locally, nationally and internationally and is a hub for the Bristol filmmaking scene.  CineMe screens films in a social setting, offering an alternative film programme to other film clubs and cinemas in Bristol.

For April's short film programme CineMe are screening ten shorts.  Highlights from the evening will include.

1. Jeff Chan's visually stunning Sci-Fi short Code 8.  The film is set in a world where those with special powers are forced to live in poverty and some of these specials are finding it hard to take anymore.

2. The animation adventure Grandma's Hero (Ben Ozeri and Corentin Monnier).  When Lulu graduates from Hero Academy he sets off on an epic journey to slay a legendary dragon, but to his great dispair, his sweet and over-caring grandma decides to join him.

3. David Freid's acclaimed documentary short High Chaparral, which examines Sweden's Wild West response to the Syrian refugee crisis.

4. The Australian comedy sketch Drawcard, which was runner up (people's choice) at Tropfest 24.

5. Geoff Harmer's horror short Selfie, where a woman is haunted by a strange figure in her own 'selfie' photographs.

6. Laureen Levy's documentary My Grandmother's Sitting Room, which sees the filmmaker journey across Europe to trace the grandmother she never met, who was killed during the Holocaust.

Other shorts being shown on the night include the comedy Requiem For Caffeine by Roslyn Shennan and Helen Sharpe.  The documentary Transforming Gravity from Dominic John and Jordan Saville.  Proxi and Peri from Nathan Hughes and The Life of Cynthia by Adam James.
