The audience and organisers alike were delighted by the first 14 films screened from around the world at last night’s successful presentation of filmmaking at the Odeon in Norwich . Screened were a range of films, from the very short one-minute movies’ to animation to student shorts, and the programme finished with plenty to talk about. A short networking session was held after the screening where filmmakers and fans alike mingled and talked about the filmls on show.
The buzz for filmmaking and movie-goers the city has to offer is undoubtably ready to inspire, with a strong hope for even more filmmakers emerging from the city in the near future.
Highlights from last night, and ‘makers to note include:
Hunting for Hockney. Dir. Alice Dunseath
An uplifting short animation, complete with flowing sound-scape that leads the audience on the same journey as the characters themselves…
Ed. Dir. Gabriel Garcia
An unusual short tale; colourful, nostalgic and peculiar, told through the eyes of Ed- a not-quite human protagonist (I wouldn’t want to spoil). With direct references to film-making, a great soundtrack and plenty to think about.
Rail. Dir. Jack Tilley
A beautifully made animation, created at the NFTS, and also a nominee for this year’s Norwich Film Fest. Rail is easily pleasing to the eyes, and warms the heart through its main characters’ and their home- a magnificent steam train and it’s fight for survival in the metropolis growing around them.
NEXT UP is this Thursday the 8th back at the Odeon for BAFTA SHORTS, an exclusive screening as part of the Bafta UK Tour.
