Whirlygig Cinema’s Spotlights is a short film night that shines a light on the work and practice of outstanding new filmmakers.
Every month, three emerging filmmakers are given just 30 minutes each to screen and talk about their films, providing a gripping insight into their background, ideas and filmmaking process. At the end of the night they take part in a Q&A, giving audiences the chance to probe further.
Taking place on the first Wednesday of every month, each event is inspired by a particular theme or genre. From animation to art, screenwriting to sci-fi, Spotlights strives to create a regular meeting place for filmmakers and film-lovers, showcasing handpicked film talent in a relaxed and intimate environment.
Spotlights in April will take a look at filmmakers who work with non-acting performance, such as poetry, dance or song, either on-screen or as a means to making the final work. Featuring David Baksh, Isabelle Sieb and Gabriela Tropia.
