It's that time of the month again. CineMe Shorts returns to the Tobacco Factory Café Bar (www.tobaccofactory.com), for their latest short film extravaganza.
This month (May 26th), CineMe will be screening eight short films with a curated programme, combining animation, comedy, drama and documentary. We've also selected films made locally, nationally and internationally, with some of the local filmmakers on hand to introduce their films on the night. The events are also a good way to meet other creatives and for film lovers to watch interesting independent and short film work that they would not be able to see at their local cinema.
For May's event CineMe are joined by London based duo Liam Tate and Jamie Stanton, who go under the name tea&cheese (www.teaandcheese.com). The duo will be screening a selection of their award winning comedy animations, including their latest cartoon instalment of Isaac and Quincy: About two badass cops Reno Wilson and Alex Désert with oversized afro's shooting their way to justice. During the screenings, Liam and Jamie will be talking about writing comedy, the process of producing their films and about pitching a TV show in Hollywood. They will also be answering any audience questions.
Other highlights from this months programme include:-
Carlos Stevens visually rich, darkly inventive fairy tale The Alchemist's Letter, which features the voices of John Hurt (V for Vendetta, Alien, Hellboy, The Elephant Man, Midnight Express) and up-and-coming star Eloise Webb (Cinderella, The Iron Lady).
The powerful documentary The Witmans, which follows two heart-broken parents, fifteen years after their lives were turned upside down, when their young son is murdered and their other son sentenced to life for the crime.
