After last night’s journey into cinematic bewilderment, LUC will be at St Patrick’s Irish Club this evening with a programme focused on the fine art of filmmaking.
First up we have three shorts selected for the LUC Short Film Prize 2015 with a local flavour:
Digbeth – A Hundred Thousand Welcomes directed by Andy Howlett
Kids In Brick Houses directed by Olivia Cole
Part Time directed by Nick Leek
Then we will be screening the four entries to our first ever 48 hour film challenge – the audience will be voting for the winner tonight!
The entries are:
The Choice by team Body In The Box Productions
A Deadly Addiction by team Low Hanging Boom
Africa by team Akira
The Thief and Her by team Les Sacs En plastique
After all that excitement, we will be screening the brilliant documentary American Movie. In this cult-favorite Mark Borchardt, an aspiring filmmaker from a working-class Wisconsin background, is set on finishing his low-budget horror movie despite a barrage of difficulties. Plagued by lack of cash, unreliable help and numerous personal problems, Mark wants to complete the film to raise funds for a more ambitious drama. With the assistance of his bumbling but loyal friend Mike Schank, Mark struggles to move forward, making for plenty of bittersweet moments.
Tickets for this marvellous event will be just £5 on the door
