Random Acts Presents: South West Showcase

+ Filmmaker Q&A with director Tash Price

Dir. Various, UK, 40 mins, 2016/2017

Showing Times:

  • Wed 12 Jul: 7.30pm

Random Acts Presents screens an exciting selection of short films by young artist filmmakers aged 16-24 in cinemas across England. From animation and comedy, to dance and spoken word – these bold and creative short films reflect the mosaic of contemporary life in England through the lens of its young artists.

This South West Showcase features 12 films from locally based filmmakers. These innovative, thought-provoking films range from 90 seconds to 3 minutes in length. The films span a range of art forms and topics – from gender and masculinity, to the transformative power of music and even the merits of pasties! Without preconceptions, filmmakers are challenging norms and carving out space for a wide range of on and off-screen talent, and bold expressions of creativity.

We will be joined by directors Rob Daglish, Sophie Marsh and Tash Price for a post-screening filmmakers Q&A. You will be able to find out more about the Random Acts Presents scheme and hear about their filmmaking experiences.

Random Acts Presents

The films screened in Random Acts Presents are the result of commissioning opportunities enabled by ICA, Calling the Shots, Rural Media, Screen South and Tyneside Cinema. The project is a joint initiative by Arts Council England and Channel 4 Random Acts, seeing many of the short films broadcast by Channel 4 on television or online as part of Random Acts’ First Acts series.

The project develops talent by offering film education, training, production support and funding to 16-24 year-olds to produce their short film. By 2018, 360 films will have been made and screened to audiences nationwide.
