21 February 2008
We're back with our ever popular short film event in the cosy and sociable setting of Roxy Bar and Screen.
We have a great selection of innovative short films and music videos lined up for the evening including such gems as Lauri Faggioni and Michel Gondry's magical music video A Ribbon, BAFTA winning animation Jo Jo in the Stars directed by Marc Craste and Grant Orchard returning for his third (A dog barks) at the Roxy with another dark and comic short from his Love Sport series.
We are also very excited to announce a special sneak preview from another of our regular directors, Shelly Love.
All this plus many more films to make you laugh, cry and feel inspired. See our programme highlights below for more details.
The bar is open throughout the evening and an eclectic funky mix of music is provided by DJ Chrissy H.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Another darkly comic animation from Grant Orchard’s Love Sport Series.
A high diving pixel comes to a bloody end.
