We will be screening the ten finalists, drawn from the 85 shorts being screened during the festival – which in turn were selected from the hundreds and hundreds that were submitted.
At the climax, one will be winning the first ever LUC SHORT FILM PRIZE TROPHY, plus £1000! Crikey. The judging panel for the prize is made up of filmmakers, critics as well as the sponsors of this years festival.
But that’s not all. In the fine tradition of previous LUC events we are also throwing in a fantastic film quiz, the likes of which is rarely seen outside of institutions surrounded by barbed wire and men with guns.
LUC are unspeakably grateful to the sponsors of this years prize:
…all fine upstanding bastions of the local community, I hope you will all consider them above all competitors when it comes to parting with your hard earned cash.
Tickets for this fantastic event are just five quid – they will be available on the night, but are also available online if you want to be sure of your seat. In years to come you’ll be able to say you were there at the start.
This all kicks of at 8 sharp, the doors to the cinema will be open at 7.50 – why not dive down to the spa centre for a drink first? The bar will be open from 6pm.
Following the conclusion of the festival we will all be adjourning to the newly opened Cask & Bottle for what I believe the young people call an after-party. See you there.
