Short Film of the Week
Short Film of the Week
The words ‘independent film’ and ‘the National Lottery’ don’t normally go together; but they probably should. In a bid to highlight the mounds of cash that the Lottery diverts from the pockets of hopeless optimists to the cameras of budding film-makers, this short film suggests how one of Britain’s best loved flicks might have turned out without NL funding.
Short Film of the Week is back with a Christmas special! Filmed over the course of one evening, this charming short is a reminder to anyone who employs short-term staff – no matter how awful your work do is going to be, they’d still quite like to come.
All good things must come to an end, and after three jam-packed days of exclusive video interviews we’re finally running out – well, YOU try fitting more than three short films plus interviews plus music and a quiz into four hours. Smart arse. In our final celluloid retrospective, we meet the stars of Anna vs. the Dead.
You seemed to like us doing a video and that yesterday, so here’s another one – an exclusive interview with the boys from Bustabowl Productions on the occasion of the premiere of their historic film Cooks, shot in 2010 or 2011 or something but first screened last week at Best For Film Presents… We Like Short Shorts. Enjoy!
We’ve started having conversations and filming them! YES, Best For Film has finally joined the modern age. If you missed out on our latest film club, you can relive all the fun of the fair with this exclusive interview with the cast and crew of zombie ultrashort Mike.
Virgin Media Shorts is the UK’s biggest short film competition, giving both established and emerging British film makers the opportunity to have their work showcased to millions on cinema screens nationwide, on Virgin Media’s TV on demand platform, on mobile and online. We meet film-maker Luke Snellin, whose film Charlie opened this years competition, to get the low-down on love, death and putting on his DJ voice to impress the chicks.
Charlie, directed by Luke Snellin, is a wonderful tribute to Charlie Chaplin, the comedy genius of the silent era. For two minutes of joy, watch this launch film for Virgin Media Shorts 2011. It’s a cracker!
You tell her you love her and she loves you. Things have never felt better. But one day, you notice something about her you hadn’t noticed before. Watch our latest Short Film of the Week, FOCUS.
