Cornerhouse’s filmmaker’s night Filmed Up returns to showcase the North West's talent this June.
Ten short films will be screened in under two hours from the audience’s selection of submissions from amateurs to small production companies.
Screened in the Annexe exhibition space, the short forms will be no longer than 20 minutes and other than a few minor technical stipulations, have no other restrictions.
As a taste for what might be in store on Friday 15 June, March’s Filmed Up’s collection included tense and brooding drama, dark and light humour, British social realism, anti-realist horror, a quaint and humorous love story and a vibrant and colourful musical documentary.
A winner will be chosen by a ballot from the audience, where written feedback on the works can be noted.
March’s competition was won by KISS, is a gripping drama made on a budget of £200 and set in the seedy underbelly of Manchester.
KISS’ director Mat Johns, of production company Zero Facility Films, told MM: “I genuinely didn’t expect it to go down as well as it did, because of what it was up against, the other film’s were all f***ing awesome.
“It was brilliant getting feedback from the audience afterwards, getting peoples’ emotional responses to the film – it was great.”
