Festival Spotlight No. 2: Underground Shorts at Altoria

LUCFEST ALTORIA COMPLETE 1000pxSome people think popcorn. Others prefer a hotdog. Some poor, misguided, unsanitary souls even think cheesy nachos are an acceptable choice – but really, the best thing to enjoy with a film is booze.

Which means that it is very exciting to announce that as part of the LUC festival, the well appointed Altoria on Warwick Street will be providing an exclusive bar-based screening of 90 minutes of exceptionally cool short films, all submitted for the LUC Short Film Prize.

The programme on Tuesday 24th September includes a broad range of drama, comedy, thrillers and even some dramatic comedy thrillers. Subjects covered include edgy criminals, randy rabbits, saucy webcam action and even a brand new urban sport.

There will even be some exciting film music DJ action a the conclusion of the cinematic programme.

How much are tickets for this fine event?

Nothing. Nada. Zero!

Yes, thanks to the marvellous people at Altoria this very special event will be FREE ENTRY so get down early to snag a seat and a glass or two of something refreshing.

The films will start at 8.00pm. There is a Facebook page for this event here: LUC Festival – Underground Shorts at Altoria

LUC SHORT FILM PRIZE – OFFICIAL SELECTION

LUC LAURELS BLACK TEXT

Here are the 85 short films that we will be screening during the first LUC Festival. There were well over 500 entries – we would like to have selected more of them, but due to constraints relating to time, money, logistics and the continued sanity of the organisers this just wasn’t feasible. Thanks to everyone who entered, please don’t be discouraged if you didn’t get in – if all goes well in September UC will do this again next year so there will be more chances to submit.

Each film will be shown at one of the exciting events during the week of the festival, this detailed programme is currently being worked using advanced techniques involving scraps of paper and arguing. Details will be published before the end of September. If you want to come to your screening let us know and we will save you a seat.

All of the films on this list are currently being evaluated by an elite subset of our judging panel to reach a final short-list. These finalists will be screened on the 29th of September at the Spa Centre Cinema – where one of them will win the LUC SHORT FILM PRIZE 2013 and possibly more importantly, £1000 in cold hard cash. We solemnly promise that there will not be a giant comedy cheque involved.

Anyway here is the official short film prize selection for the first Leamington Underground Cinema Festival…

Film Club at The Clarendon tonight 8pm

Join us tonight by the big screen in Leamington’s most well appointed boozer for a few drinks and some short film bits and pieces harvested from around the internet. Films start at 8, but if you aren’t local, don’t like crowds or are serving a stretch at Her Majesty’s pleasure, links to all the films will be up here at 7ish so you can join in from your cell. Fans of Back To The Future may be offended.

Film Club 26th May @ The Clarendon

On Sunday 26th May, Leamington Underground Cinema invites you to another evening of short film treats gathered from the darkest corners of the internet.

Two halves of cinematic delights will kick off at 8PM on the big screen at Leamington’s premier public house, The Clarendon, where every effort will be made by our crack team of technical experts to make sure that the projector works properly this time.

Entry is free to everyone with a fully working sense of humour.

Next LUC Film Club, Sunday 31st March 8pm

We’ll be back round the big screen at the Clarendon in 4 weeks time for another evening of cool shorts and inevitably some extremely worrying trailers. As usual, two halves of 40 minutes or so, with a handy refreshment/toilet/crack smoking break in the middle.

There might even be some sort of exciting competition this time. Try to remain calm, while you study this scruffy looking poster…
