We had films projected onto tables during Shorts a la Carte at Inamo. Here’s what they said:
This year for the very first time, Inamo became a venue partner with the LSFF to provide an entirely unique experience to that which has gone before. To an intimate group of guests, we presented ‘Shorts a la Carte’: a carefully selected set of abstract short films were projected onto the table tops from above while guests delved into a hearty Sunday afternoon lunch at Inamo in Soho.Films from Kayla Parker & Stuart Moore, Max Hattler, Julian Hand and Naren Wilks made up a colourful 45 minute show of experimentalism, helped along by a complimentary glass of prosecco from Inamo.
Presenting AnimateTV: 20 Years of Experimental Animation from the UK
We are thrilled to announce the release in September of a limited edition DVD of AnimateTV films. The DVD draws together a unique selection from over 100 commissions and highlights the incredible range of experimental practice accomplished in the UK in the past 20 years.
The judges described Sea Front as ‘a very atmospheric and nostalgic production that was beautifully produced’ and the Chair of the Judges Mark Leaver had kind words about our film after the presentation. It was good to talk to fellow Independent Film/Video nominee Joshua Gaunt who was pipped to the prize. The three films nominated from the category’s entries were all quite individual so the judging must have been hard.
It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into the judging of each category so thanks to all the people involved and to Karen and Kurston at PM-P. Jodie Burns, a student at PCoA was commissioned to make the beautiful trophies and David Fitzgerald was a great host for the evening.
