FILMS TO BREAK PROJECTORS / Dir: Tim Grabham. 5 mins.

A coming-of-age film about a girl’s first crush.

THE GOOSE HUNTER / Dir: Jess Dadds. 6 mins.

OUT THERE / Dir: Adnan Mangral. 14 mins.
There’s something out there and it’s worrying Louis. He finds himself venturing into the wilderness, away from suburbia, to hunt it down. But maybe he should look closer to home.

Just a trim today, sir? Got anything nice planned?
Forget all that, in this short film we’re in a Brighton hair salon and this is
no ordinary haircut…
