There’s been a lot going on in the region recently for short film fans. There was the launch of the Sunderland Short Film Festival earlier this month, organised in collaboration with DC Shorts, which was a big success and has helped to put the region firmly on the global short film map. Fans of the genre may already be aware that the Tyneside Cinema is the venue for a monthly short film night, hosted by local TV and film production company, Candle & Bell.
Maria Caruana Galizia, Producer and Managing Director, says that the reasons for setting up the event were twofold: to give filmmakers the opportunity to share their films with people outside the typical film festival audience, and as a place for short film fans to hang out, meet like-minded people and discuss the films. It’s also great for feature film addicts (like me) to discover a whole new world of films. Submissions are always welcome from filmmakers (there’s no deadline!) For more information on how to submit your film go to the Candle & Bell website.
Tickets are only £3 and four short films will be screened on the night, covering topics as wide-ranging as lost love, alcoholic piano tuners, pantomime dames and flying machines.
The Candle & Bell Short Film Night will take place at the Tyneside Cinema on Monday 26th January.
