British Independent Film Awards Showcase
Supported by BFI Network and Film Hub North, BIFA (the British Independent Film Awards) is bringing its programme of the best British short films of the past year to Leeds for the first time!
This is a brilliant and rare opportunity to watch the five films nominated for the Best British Short Film award 2019, supported by BFI Network, on your local big screen. The screening will be followed by drinks and an opportunity to network with like-minded film fans, local filmmakers and representatives from BIFA and Film Hub North.
The five films being screened are:
Dir: Dekel Berenson
Living in war-torn Eastern Ukraine Anna is an aging single mother who is desperate for a change. Lured by a radio advertisement, she goes to party with a group of American men who are touring the country, searching for love.
Dir: Philip Barantini
A single-take snapshot of the immense stress and skills of a talented head chef (played by BAFTA and BIFA nominee Stephen Graham) reveals that things are about to burst behind his restaurant’s flash façade.
The Devil’s Harmony
Dir: Dylan Holmes Williams
A bullied teenage girl leads an a cappella club on a trail of destruction against her high school enemies. Think Sex Education with a horror twist.
Dir: Hector Dockrill
A story about a little girl searching for her brother’s heart inside the body of a stranger. A heart keeps you alive - but it’s love that makes you live.
Dir: Abdou Cissé
A short tale on the face of masculinity, portrayed by young men who grow up in inner city environments. Where the iconic ‘screwface’ is more than just an expression, it’s a matter of life and death.
