LUC Festival Begins Tonight!

LucFestivalPosterOne 1000pxRight, this is getting serious.

The LUC Festival Operatives have all been briefed, issued with cyanide capsules and deployed into the field. The PR department have been give a crate of red bull and locked in our social media dungeon. Meanwhile the logistics department have as one curled into a foetal position and started asking for their mum.

It can mean only one thing: the first Leamington Underground Cinema Festival is almost upon us.

Kicking off tonight, LUC presents a week of cinematic entertainment and diversion, six months in the making. We can’t wait to unleash the six cool features and 85 (!) fantastic short films across the town of Leamington Spa at a variety of generous, well appointed venues.

Speaking of tonight, we are opening our first festival with a real treat, The Secret Society Of Fine Arts, a unique, compelling and visually stunning tale of art and terrorism – screening COMPLETELY FOR FREE at Leamington’s slightly secret, and very arty Live Arts and Music Project aka LAMP.

Prior to the feature we will be screening a selection of art/experimental shorts from the selection for the LUC SHORT FILM PRIZE 2013. These short films kick off at 7.30pm sharp, there will be a short intermission to take full advantage of LAMP’s fine selection of beverages before the main feature screening. Join us earlier for a drink and the chance to buy tickets for some of the other festival events. Oh and there will be popcorn too.

LUC Festival Draft Shorts Programme

Hey filmmakers – have you been tossing and turning in a fitful, feverish web of torment every night, desperate to know exactly where and when we will be showing all the amazing short films selected for the LUC Festival? I thought so. Well, put down the revolver because now the nightmare is over – below is a listing of which shorts will be screened at each event. Please note, this is a draft – the running order hasn’t been locked in by our team of scheduling professionals, but if you fancy coming along to enjoy your film on a big(ish) screen slap the date in the diary.

We will be in touch with all selected filmmakers with more details in the next couple of weeks – including details of how to ensure you have a reserved seat or are on the guest list for an event that your film is screening at. There will be a posh printable programme coming soon featuring photos, maps and maybe even a scratch and sniff element…
