Join us on closing night for the highlight of the festival, the Exeter Phoenix 2022 short film commission premiere screening.



South West Documentary Short Film Commission

A Village with a View

Dir. Joe Inman

A Village with a View, is a living document of a small village in Cornwall. The village has existed for 80 years, being built over time by the people who live there. As the tourist industry in Cornwall explodes, the landowner wants to take the land back, and the residents have to fight to keep the houses and the community they share.


Micro Short Film Commission


Dir. Zoe Bloss

Voicemail is a story that follows a young woman making an important phone call where she learns how to say goodbye.  It’s ultimately about how we find connection when we most feel alone.


Salt in the Wounds

Dir. Tom Stockley

Salt In The Wounds reflects on the experience of queerness and coming of age in the working class suburbs of Torquay


Devon Short Film Commission

A Tremor At The Edge Of Vision

Dir. Beth Emily Richards

An experimental exploration of the relationships between humans and birds of prey in urban and online environments.


South West Short Film Commission

Placenta Pâté

Dir. Tia Salisbury

Is it possible to create anything edible from a semi-defrosted organ, how do you assemble a food processor through the fog of sleep deprivation and why’s it so hard to be a Mum when it’s all you’ve ever wanted?


Artists Moving Image Commission

Coaley Peak (A Fragment)

Dir. Dan Guthrie

Dan Guthrie was chosen by Exeter Phoenix for their 2021 Artists’ Moving Image commission. His proposal was to make a film about Blackness and belonging in the English countryside, taking a family photo of some of his relatives at the Gloucestershire viewpoint Coaley Peak as a starting point. Whilst making the film, something happened.
